Chemo weekends are hard. My parents take the girls on the day of my treatment and have them the whole weekend. I usually pick them up from school on the following Tuesday. Not seeing the girls for 5 days is the worst part of this whole process. I do think it is better for them to not see me in my chemo pain/laying in bed/looking horrible state that I'm in for those days. But it's painful not to see them. The best part? Picking them up when I haven't seen them in days. It is my most favorite thing right now. They are so excited to see me and I just love it! I picked Claire up today and while we waited for sissy in car line, we took some pictures to try and capture how happy we both were!
They remind every time I see them why I am fighting so hard. Moments like these! I want a lifetime of them!
