First words

New words heard around our house for the first time this week:

Little Bear:  Dad, Dog, Ke-ur (his best pronounciation of the dog’s name; he loves the dog, but the dog, unfortunately, does not love him), Hi! (said excitedly from his crib, first thing in the morning), Achoo! (pretend sneezing when his brother offers him fake flowers, a family joke in our house), Gra (Grammy and Granddad)

Widget:  I love you, Mom (whispered, with a hug around the neck).

WhyMommy & WhyDaddy:  One more chemo.  One more chemo.

Hopefully that will be true in a few hours; I’ll post more tonight if I can and let you know if the countdown truly does go to one.  Today has several difficult things in store.  First the chemo, then the breast MRI, which did not go well on Monday.  Not looking forward to it.

If you pray, I would appreciate your prayers for an easy test this afternoon.  I so need to get this done.

    Praying “one more chemo” is the new phrase whispered across the blogosphere tonight. Relax in the machine. Breath deeply and feel God’s love and power. He will open your veins and make them strong. Exhale and release all your anxiety. He is with you. We all are.
