So, most of you know that I am a pretty big sports fan. OK - in my case you can't really shorten the word to fan - yes I am a fanatic! Go Blue - You'll get 'em next year Tigers - And Go Lions - yes I said it - I am a Lions fan! Any of you that follow sports also know that no matter if a team is going through good times or bad times, there is always one common theme that resonates throughout the team - "We've just got to take it one day at a time!" That is a thought that keeps running through my head over the last 24 hours. Yesterday was somewhat surreal. Sam had mentioned the pity looks she got - at the infusion center - from the other patients! I couldn't help but think while we were sitting there for over 5 hours laughing, joking, watching Ellen dance, basically relaxing - that this was not in our plans! At 33 and 34, we did not expect this. (Yes Sam, cancer and all, I will take this opportunity to remind you that I am indeed a whole year younger than you). I mentioned this was not in our plans. Many of you also know that Sam and I are the biggest planners I think ever! Yup, I am going to go out on a limb and say we win the award! I have caught us planning on how we are going to make plans! Christine, stop laughing! So, while sitting there during Sam's chemo treatment, I of course start planning on how I am going to take care of things in the coming days, weeks and months while Sam is not feeling well. I find myself starting to get overwhelmed with all that is about to come our way. Then I remember the famous sports analogy: "We're just going to take it one day at a time." And for us, right now, I am not sure there is a better way to handle things. We didn't plan for this to happen. This disease has a mind of it's own and why should I think it will be any different going forward. We can plan all we want to, but it comes down to the fact that Sam is going to fight this and get better - and we have to take it on one day at a time!
