I did as promised and really took it easy these past few days. Every need was met from food, to dishes, to cleaning, to kid care and beyond. A true chance to heal. I'm feeling stronger every day and only took one nap today. One lingering side effect, my sleep is definitely weird. It always feels kind of twilight-like. I'm not sure if I'm sleeping or daydreaming most of the time, but then hours pass suddenly so I must be asleep. The dreams are odd beyond odd. I must have a VERY whacked out subconscious. I know you want details, but really, I can't. Just trust me.
Fisher had a super fun Disney-like day today which makes me so happy. First to Home Depot with Dad to help turn his sandbox (aka neighborhood litter box- sick!!) into a new vegetable garden. Nick worked all day on it and it's perfect. Then Fisher was whisked away by his best friend Thomas Evans and his mom Miss Andrea for lunch at Rainforest Cafe ("there were trees and monkeys and rain in the restaurant!"), then to see his girlfriends Georgia and Lane in a dance recital (the boys gave the girls flowers) and then a stop for frozen yogurt with the whole crew. Are you kidding me? A four year old's heaven.
This week we start in with doctor's appointments again, but happily, no chemo until Monday the 24th. One interesting meeting we have Tuesday is with a genetics counselor to help us figure out where this cancer came from, and to see if it may reappear. These tests are so important because my family has no trace of breast cancer that we know of, but if it is in my genes, we need to know to protect ourselves. I want to defend the girls in the photo above like a mama bear.
I'm over and out before my Tylenol PM kicks in and my looney tunes dreams begin. I may give you a taste of that insanity in a later blog. Just for fun.
