Suzanne, Paul's mother, took the kids to Fillmore on Tuesday night for Thanksgiving. We thought about driving to be with them for Thanksgiving dinner, but I wasn't feeling well. It made me feel really down to not spend the holiday with them. Some neighbors brought Paul and I leftovers from their dinner, but I was too sick to even try anything until the next day.
I am feeling a lot better, and today is the first day since the chemo that I haven't taken anti-nausea medication. We picked the kids up and I am hoping that I will be back to normal tomorrow. I am trying to stay positive, and in the spirit of Thanksgiving, here are the things I am thankful for.
1- My children. I am lucky that I was able to have my children before breast cancer because chemotherapy induces menopause and infertility.
2- My supportive husband who constantly listens to my anxieties and is always so positive and strong.
3- Paul's mother Suzanne who has helped me so much with my kids.
4- My friends who help me to stay positive and keep me pre-occupied. (Thanks Jamie for the shellac nails)
5- My religion. I am trying to let go of the things I can't control and put my trust in God. I have faith that He will guide and support me and everything will be OK.
