Thanksgiving was normal. I woke up and watched the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and Julian freaked out (in a good way) over every balloon or float he saw with a character he recognized. We went to my parents and ate Thanksgiving dinner like we normally do. And then Friday morning I woke up and watched 6 straight hours of Gilmore Girls. This is going to sound totally cheesy but I told my sister while watching it was like hanging out with an old friend and completely comforting. Saturday we went to my in-laws to celebrate Thanksgiving and then Sunday we went to my parents to celebrate my birthday. When we got to my parents the house was covered inside and out with Christmas decorations. My mom had decorated 4 trees. Julian’s reaction was less than I expected. He honestly was more excited about Halloween.
And now it’s over and as it got later into Sunday evening I could feel a bit of anxiety creeping in. Today is a double dose of chemotherapy. Its the start of cycle 2. Two of six cylces, 14 more weeks of chemo after today. Last week Julian had a runny nose and we told him he couldn’t hug Mimi (because of that whole chemo destroying the immune system thing) and he says, “Oh, I can’t hug Mimi because she has a little bit of cancer” and we just laughed because it was just so sweet.
