In Widget’s Words

When Lynn thanked me for the health update last night, I realized it had been a while since I’d been brutally honest about it.  If you missed it, I want you to know that it’s okay.  I’m doing better.  I’m hoping for good news from the oncologist this week, and I’m confident that we’ll get it.  Or, as Widget explained to Daddy tonight when I took off my scarf, 

“New hair grow up.  That means mom’s getting better.”

Yeah, baby!

LB: ate pasta for the first time today and played with friends.  W: visited a co-op preschool and told me today that he wants to go back to his school.  “Sometimes.”

    Children are so in touch with what is real..real to them, but that is reality. New hair grow up? It does mean “mommy getting better”. What a blessing!

    I’m hopeful that you will have good news, but even happier that you sound very much like you are living a normal life right now. Not completely normal, but what is that? Life goes on and you are taking charge of yours. AWESOME!

  17. Funny how we think of hair as growing out and he thinks of it as growing up, like a healthy plant…or kid.

  18. New hair grow up 🙂


    Sending a top up of those hugs.
