So things have been going very well here in our little nest in Wisconsin.
I was able to get out in the beautiful weather for a run...
MOM! This blog is not about YOU! This blog is about ME, Sam!
Mom. Please. Stop telling about you and tell them about me.
Sam...why don't you tell them!?
Fine. I will. I have had a great two days. I feel pretty good. I am only sick to my stomach a little.
I am reading a chapter book -- How To Train Your Dragon. All by myself.
Um, maybe a little help from me?
Mom. Stay out of it.
(He's the one on the left.)
Mom! Don't give away all the answers.
We hung out most of the day today and played! I taught him to play Stack the States.
I did 24 laps too. I did 14 with Zeyde. Bubbie worked on her knitting.
I don't even want to think what the oncologists would say if they saw this picture.
I learned how to send emails to Dad and Grandma and I used my toes to type. I have good toes.
No. I'm good. I'm going back to my movie now.
Thanks, Sammy :-)
And so we just keep swimming along here in our little sea of Cancerland. It was quite lovely to watch Sam spend most of the day with the other little boy and have so much social time! It makes the hours fly by when there's a friend on hand. It was pretty surreal to have two poles and two bald kids...but the other mom and I also enjoyed spending time together. (You will all find it not hard to believe that I taught her how to use Facebook. And you might laugh at that also!) There are silver linings to everything, and to know that other families "get" what we are going through in the most deep and personal way...our lives would never intersect in any other way, but here we are, all connected forever by the beast that is childhood disease.
And so we rest....tomorrow is another day.
