Livin’ Life


Today I got to send a text to mom that I haven’t sent in a long time on a Friday. Where to for dinner?

Yesterday mom thoroughly cleaned the house. She said she couldn’t remember the last time she was able to clean like that in one day. When we thought about it we realized it had probably been almost a year because her pain had begun months before her diagnosis.

Monday she sat on her swing because it was a nice day. This was the first time in a long time she had sat outside on her swing and wasn’t in absolute pain.

She has plans for the next two weeks. Because of her low white blood cell count and the new chemo routine she has two weeks off. And she is living and seeing her do that helps us live right along with her. Tuesday was a shake up but we are finding our normal and adjusting accordingly and taking advantage of a mom with no chemo for two weeks.

    Thinking about you all Ashley. I never stop praying for your mom. I emailed my prayer group right after I asked if you were ok with me asking them to pray for her. I had so many responses back from them so you can hold on to the thought that a ton more women are also praying. Keep your faith although I know that is very VERY hard to do. And…Happy almost birthday to your sweet little Julian. He is what grounds you…he is your everything!!
