Mom had chemo Monday and now Cycle 3 is over. This course of treatment is over and she’s headed to Disney World next week. She will have a CT scan on April 20th and then meet with her oncologist on April 24th. From there we will find out what’s next treatment-wise.
Julian has been sick this week. A low grade fever that doesn’t seem to want to go away. I took him to the pediatrician and his ears look good and he tested negative for strep. This week is probably the longest I’ve forgotten what’s going on. I haven’t seen my mom in about a week because of the germs and when we talk it’s about how Julian is feeling.
When I think of my family I don’t think about what’s coming up with this cancer nonsense. I think about the fact that they’re headed to Disney next week. No further treatment is scheduled for mom. Now that doesn’t mean she won’t have future chemos or whatever but nothing is scheduled until the CT scan on the 20th. So I dub this cancer spring break. A break from treatment and a time for mom to enjoy the most magical place on Earth.
