All 7 of us are relieved to be in the same zip code again. The decision to stay together from here on out brings peace and contentment to all of us. We're all up for the adventure.
The pioneers lived in one bedroom homes without electricity and running water. Surely we can do it with both of those luxuries. My sanity may be running a little low once the kids start spending more time indoors, but we'll just continue to take it a day at a time.
Clara is on day 11 post chemo, within that 10-14 days when fevers usually come. So far so good. She is doing awesome! This morning she said to me, "I'm not gonna throw up today, mom." And she didn't. First time in a week. I think that's all behind us till the next round starts on the 26th.
She's got a week to pack in all the fun with her brothers and sister till she has to be back in the hospital. At least now they can come and visit her every day. It will be so nice.
And the saying, "absence make the heart grow fonder"? It's totally true.
