My week recap:
Heard from Stanford regarding Brian's test results. Not good news. Rained all day long.
Heard from local doctor confirming bad test results and got details about new chemos - 3-4 hours of IV drips in the clinic starting Monday.
Terrible wind and rain all day. Got a phone call letting me know my neighbor was concerned because this was in my backyard:
is was our trampoline. The trampoline that brings the kids to MY yard. The trampoline that elicits laughter and squeals of delight. The trampoline that is currently completely disassembled with two broken frame pieces and a ripped net.
That is our tree. I thank God for that tree, else the same neighbor that called regarding the catastrophe would currently be eating off the trampoline because it probably would have crashed into her kitchen.
This is the forecast for the weekend, the last weekend before Brian starts chemo, the weekend Brian wanted to really kick back and have a good time:
Did I mention my sister, Mindi, her husband, Matt, and son, Logan, are coming to visit? Did I mention IT IS MID-APRIL?!!?!
I'm afraid to ask what else could happen. But, I do know that attitude is a choice. I also know that lots of deep breaths, a quick prayer, and good company help our attitude. That and a big juicy steak with a bottle of red wine.
