This is Caroline, Kristin's Mom, here for a very short visit, just long enough to see her through her third session of chemo.
Although I miss Howie terribly, it's been so good to to be able to hug Kristin and to say "I love you," and tell her she's still our beautiful baby girl. Chemo today went very well, in spite of a slight fever last night, and she claims this is the easiest first day she's had. Obviously buttering me up in an attempt to get me back again.
We hadn't seen Nick or the children since last summer , so that's been an added bonus. Jenny-Jane is now this tiny little girl with ideas of her own, and Fisher has turned into a real charmer. He paid me the nicest compliment when I was drying him after his bath. He said I smelled like a Grandma. and when I asked what Grandmas smell like, he said "Good."
Although I haven't contributed to the blog, I follow it every day and I want to thank all of you who have supported Nick and Kristin, those who have prayed and cooked and driven and countless other acts of kindness. Special thanks to Virginia, Wendy, and Claudia for being here to be mother for me, and to Dinah who is just an angel in disguise.
We love you so much Kristin!
