5 hours...

Today is 5 hour chemo day! By the time we get to the Doctor's office...do all the regular things...weight...blood pressure and temp...and then talk with the Doctor and a short exam an hour has gone by....then getting set up for the treatment takes a while...all in all....from 10 till 4:30 we will be at the hematology clinic...So I gather some books...some pencils...and new sharpie and my strength as I prepare to start this day....I will look at these hours as a moment where I do not have to do anything...I do not have to run anywhere...or answer a phone...or do mundane housework...I will look at these hours as a stolen day to sketch and read...and nap...quietly using it...selfishly using it as time for myself also....My biggest hope is that the side effects that Michael experienced last time do not show them self to such a degree this time....

It's important to remember that a difficult as this day will be you and he will get through it.

Good Luck and God Bless!

You are both in my prayers today. For Michael that he experiences less discomfort, and for you that you find peace and creativity in a place of so much trauma and urgency.
