The day after… Day 1093 14NOV11
The day after camp is always a hard one. Everybody has to adjust themselves back to the normal day in and day out schedule that we have all the time. This morning we got the boys back on school work and I got ready to go back to work and start a new semester. Joshua was a little slow getting started but managed to get up to speed after a bit of cajoling.
Today marked 3 years since we got diagnosed and the painful memories are just below the surface for all of us. It doesn't take much more than a passing thought to bring them welling up to the surface. Joshua got a bit upset last night as we remembered our fateful trip in to meet Dr. Wynn for the first time and discover that our world would never be the same ever again. Even after 1093 days the memory is a fresh as if it happened yesterday, I imagine it always will be that way. Certain moments in time just stick with you...
Joshua was doing much better today and this morning told me that he only had 141 more days to go until he would be done with chemo forever. He always manages to find a glimmer of brightness in every dark cloud :) His faith in the future is inspiring and is one of the things that keeps us putting one foot in front of the other.
