This afternoon, my cousin Sue (who happens to be 13 days older than me - not that it's any big deal...I just thought you should know) came down to visit from Sedro Woolley. We were very close as young kids, but over the years we'd grown apart as families sometimes do. Today was the first time we'd seen each other since my diagnosis. When she got to my door it was as though time stood still. We hugged for what seemed like forever. I miss her funny laugh, I miss her smile, I miss knowing about her life. I think after today we've both decided that we need each other more than we knew it. I'm happy about that :)
My brother-in-law, sister-in-law and niece stopped by this afternoon too. We attempted to watch a new movie that they brought over, but Darlena only likes to watch the Lion King. Maybe we'll try it again next time. Angie came over after her exciting morning as an official for Special Olympics Basketball. She told us some great stories. It was clear she had a memorable time. I think that will be on Angie's list of "must do" things for the future. It's funny how the more we give, the more we get back...
Tomorrow A Breath Away From The Cure Foundation is starting a new lung cancer awareness campaign. I'm attaching the website so you can look at all the signs that will be hanging on busses in San Francisco and New York City. I'm really proud to be a part of this incredible organization. There are 13 different ads. Check them all out!
Ok, time for me to get my jammies on. We need a good night's sleep since we start a new chemo week tomorrow. I have my monthly check-up on Tuesday while Rick is having his chemo. Doesn't this just sound like a soap opera, or a really bad sitcom?
Love you more every minute.
