a stream-side family picnic

As the 20th day of “Round 1” chemo wrapped to a close, and empowered by our daughter we were able to enjoy and laugh our way through a family picnic at stream side … truth be told ducks got more than their fair share.

It was a gulp of non-exhausted air and a ‘remember why’ moment in time before round two of three of chemotherapy for lung cancer begins today  … 

More important it was time for Patti to laugh, never quite remembering and or understanding that I even have lung cancer she has, through the intuitive guidance, of our daughter learned of the death of her own father,  and participated as best as possible in his viewing and funeral…. Monumental, perhaps even unimaginable, challenges for someone with MS dementia and cognitive issues.

Cancer can be so selfish to the lives of others.
