Life is certainly getting back to normal. I only think about cancer maybe twice a day, and honestly feel like things are ok...although my ear and throat still hurt, it is not bogging my mind down so I figure it must be getting better. Today I had a hellacious headache and Tylenol took care of it--not once did I think it was a brain tumor. Now that is progress.
Ava had a rough night last night. Heather reports that her issues were typical--the surgeons called it the 6 hour slide--meaning 6 hours after surgery things sometimes take a turn for the worst. But the doctors got her back on a breathing machine and she is doing well now. They warned Jamie and Jamie that THIS will be a major roller coaster ride--she won't necessarily be without set backs. Jamie is doing ok--had to say goodbye to her other son for a few days as he is coming home. The good news is they were able to find a hotel room for this weekend--they weren't able to originally since U of M has a home game...but big sis Heather found one. Then on Monday they move into the Ronald McDonald House. Ava is expected to be at U of M for at least a month--more likely two. But everyone is "hanging tough" and I hope we continue our prayers for her. Isn't she just gorgeous?
Andrew is back at school and at football. Schwew. The best thing is he got his National Honor Society app in early (albeit just one day early) I keep forgetting that Josh attends NHS--he just makes my day when I see him. I am used to looking for Andrew but when Shaggy Joshie shows up I can't help but smile. I am also proud of his academic efforts--he is doing well and rarely needs reminders for homework, etc. WAY better than he was at middle school.
My double pumped boobs have given me very little trouble so that makes me happy, happy , happy because maybe this thing will be done sooner. I still hate bras but Mr. Pizza Pocket and Mr. Ski Slope are U-G-L-Y even under clothes so I have to wear a bra to hold Miss Filler Boob. Perky Boob is doing well despite my leaking episode the other day.
I want so bad to believe I am cancer free. Can I be that lucky??
