Today at noon, mom receives her first chemo installation. She will need to be at the facility for 6 hours while they monitor her initial reactions to the treatment.
Then, she'll go home with a bag of the magic poison juice slung around her shoulder like a hand bag. It'll stay connected to the port they installed for 48 hours until we head back to the facility to have it removed. This will happen every two weeks - no time off.
I arrive tomorrow morning, 2/16, where I'll finally be in that lovely ladies arms. Thank you all so much for taking such good care of us. Once we get a bit more accustomed to our routine, you can be sure we'll be calling in all those generous offers we've been collecting.
It seems time is our teacher now.
We look into the fog that awaits and envelops.
Searching for some tool or weapon,
Some light or familiar face,
Some sense of the road,
And though we cannot see the hand before us,
We hear the voices of love
Echoing through the wilderness.
And so we are surefooted in our hope.
