We are still here, even though I've been quiet on the blogging side of things.
Our week has been filled with:
A visit from the tooth fairy--McCady
Rides on her two-wheel without training wheels!--MaLeah
A visit to the doctor where he said, "You're right. She has a high fever and she's grouchy."--Maiya
Working and cutting up trees (So we can clear the path for the lane to our property)--Ward
We're doing pretty well. The treatments have shown their side effects. When I tried to brush my hair this morning this is what I saw:I stopped brushing.
Yesterday over a similar scene MaLeah said, "Daddy said not to put hair in the sink!" People have said, "It's probably easier the second time around." I'd like to see their expression in the mirror after they pull out a few clumps.
Okay so the bright side of things. I don't know if this is true in all cases, but did you know that I have one good side effect from the chemo. I can sit outside in a cloud of mosquitos and not get bit!!! I guess they don't like the smell of the chemo running through my blood. I've got to count the positives, what else is there to do?
On the really bright side of things--We're out of here! We are leaving on a road trip in about a half and hour. We are going to Lake Tahoe, the Redwoods and up the Oregon Coast. Just think, now I won't have to clean up all this hair all over these beautiful hardwood floors. Instead I'll leave it in Nevada, California, and Oregon. This is one of the things on my LIST. I'm so grateful Ward and his wonderful staff made work flow smoothly so it can happen.
I hope you have a WONDERFUL week!
