Well, I am sitting here on a Saturday morning feeling like things are pretty normal - a pretty typical Saturday morning.
I woke up with Max for his normal 5:00AM feeding and put him back to bed. I then went straight into the office early this morning to catch up on some work - I feel much better if I can get things a little organized for the week to come. I got home in time to see Cooper as he was waking up and currently Max and Mommy(Sam) are getting their much needed rest upstairs. I expect Max to be waking up soon all ready to rock and roll for the morning! So, a pretty typical, somewhat boring Saturday morning. But these days, boring is just fine. This week has been a bit of a roller coaster for Samantha. I think the anxiety is building for next week, as it is Sam's second treatment on Tuesday. I can't believe it has already been three weeks. I think the first one was difficult, because it was the unknown of what was going to happen and how she was going to react. I think this time it is equally as hard, because she knows exactly what is going to happen and exacly how she is going to react. Sam has done amazingly well, considering everthing she is going through. She certainly has her ups and downs, but who can blame her. She is so tough and strong spirited, I am in awe of her every day! I am overwhelmingly in love with my wife and not shy about sharing it in such a forum. (Sorry Sam - I know you did not want these blogs to get too personal). She is an inspiration to me and is setting a wonderful example for our children. Someday we will be able to reflect on this "Lump" in the Road and be able to teach our children that there is nothing they cannot overcome. I think we are stronger as a family because of these unfortunate circumstances and I think I will become a better father and husband as a result of it. If there is anything we can take away from this as a positive, that is certainly near the top of the list.
So, as next week quickly approaches, we will enjoy the last few days of boredom before we start the roller coaster all over again!
