So, it is Wednesday evening - well past my bedtime and as tired as I am; I cannot sleep. Sam had her third treatment yesterday and like clockwork, the chemo has hit her and she has begun her bad week. She seems to be a bit more nauseous this time than previous treatments. Cooper seems to be taking this one a little harder as well and Max has accomplished pulling himself up on everything! And me, well I am hanging in - I guess. For whatever reason, I am having a bit of a difficult time with this one. Sometimes reality hits me in the face like a ton of bricks and things get tough. It is very difficult to watch a loved one go through this up and down roller coaster. These first three treatments have flown by, yet I feel like we have a long road ahead of us. Sam has done well, probably handled things about as well as can be expected. I just have to remember to take things day by day.
But anyway - you have logged in to hear how Sam is doing, so I will keep it focused on that. As I mentioned earlier, we are into day two and that is when the chemo starts to hit her hard. For the next couple of days, she will basically be in bed resting and recouping. As wonderful of a mom and planner that she is, Sam has set up play dates everyday for Cooper starting tomorrow and going through Sunday. That will be great for Cooper to play with all of his buddies and keep his mind off of things. By early next week, Sam will start to feel better and I am sure she will update the blog on how everything went.
Thank you all for your support - I am sorry this is not the most upbeat blog ever written.
