One More Week to go!
We loved all the responses about Superman! I definitely think the best response was to "send that 13-year-old up on the roof." Sometimes if we "only had a brain!" My sister-in-law, Nancy, asked how I was doing. Weekends are tough--that's all I can say. I was in pain, I now have thrush in my mouth (Emily, my daughter, told us that is a pretty common side effect in this type of cancer),and I just don't feel so well. Today I have been up more--it seems like on Saturday that I just sleep from one nap to the next! There are all sorts of different things that my family does to distract me from pain. Most of all, they just let me sleep. But Brady comes and plays games with me--of course, he's smarter and faster than me, so he always beats me...but I'm going to put a picture of us playing "Speed" together. He's Speedy, and I'm Slowey! Kelsey just helps in any way possible, and is always concerned how I slept and how I feel. She is super thoughtful. Like I said last night, Spence is there for me a ton. So my family is taking care of me...and hopefully Monday things will be feeling better again. I love you all--have a good day...and know that this is our last week of treatments for now. HOORAY!! Love you lots, Louise
