Chemo and Kidlums



I started chemo yesterday. That just got real.
So far, I'm feeling okay. They gave me some steroids that gave me some energy yesterday, so after chemo, I cleaned my house. Somehow, that wasn't what I expected. In the evening, some queasiness and fatigue set in, but nothing like what I experienced in the first few days of radiation. They (doctors, nurses, the internet, random cancer books, etc.) say that the worst nausea happens 2 or 3 days after chemo. Clearly, I'm excited for the next few days...

But my kids are cute. These pictures were taken back during radiation, before I lost my hair, just in case you're wondering...

Love the pic of you and Rafe. So classic. So cute. Super excited to finally meet that little guy in a few months!

That is a classic pic of you and Rafe. Did Adam take it? The kids are even cuter in person. Glad we can be here for a few days.

You're amazing. And the picture of you and Rafe is adorable. The other pictures are pretty great too.

I was going to comment about that sliding door picture too! Whatever. Still going to. It's especially sweet.

Your kids ARE cute. And Lydia looks like she has enough beautiful hair for the two of you... at least for now. I am so enjoying stalking on your blog. Love you!!

That's a cute little dino shirt on Rafe! And of course I'm still obsessed with Lydia. And of course you are lovely, my dear :)
