Two Months?

Yes, it’s been two months since I’ve posted here.  But we’ve already established that I’m the worst blogger ever.  So.  ‘Nuf said.

It’s been a little crazy around here.  Mom did start chemo.  She did ok after the first one, but the second one hit her pretty hard.  She lost most of her hair.  She lost most of her taste and appetite.  She got sick with bronchitis.  She was so weak and tired, she slept around the clock for about a week.  She barely ate.  Since this past weekend, though, she’s been feeling better.  Then yesterday was time for chemo #3.  But since she had lost a good bit of weight; and was still pretty weak and tired, they decided to hold off until next week.  Maybe she’ll be able to eat some Thanksgiving dinner!

Yep, tomorrow is Thanksgiving.  I’m cooking the turkey and having everyone over here.  Then Friday we leave to meet Eric’s parents and sister and her family in Gettysburg for the weekend.  I’m looking forward to getting away.

BTW, Halloween was a lot of fun with Hope!  Here are a couple of pics!

Cutie Pie!




We did venture out to the mall once and got my mom a wheelchair.  The perfect illustration of my life at this time:

Geriatric & Pediatric!

It’s 1AM on Thanksgiving and I’m falling asleep writing this!  Happy Thanksgiving to all!  I’ll try to be better at this!!

  1. It’s ok – you have alot going on! You are totally excused. But, thanks for the update. Chemo is hell. There is no other way to put it. Blessings to your mom… she is strong, she will get passed this and fight. I hope she is in good spirits for the omst part, I know it’s hard. Glad you had a good thanksgiving & Halloween! 🙂
