17: In Between Days

I had about 4 weeks between my last chemotherapy treatment and my scheduled surgery. During this time, I recovered from the 3+ months of chemo, and, being glad to have the first stage of treatment over, focused on the second step - surgery. 

As is the way with things, there were good days and bad days. But I had much to be thankful for.

We even got in a quick, last-minute trip to Houston to visit some friends. I still can't believe how curly Lucia's hair gets in the humidity!

I tried to work as much as I could, but sometimes life just likes to laugh at you.

And then sometimes I just laughed at myself.
