We awoke at 5:45 this morning to make our early trek to Santa Barbara. Our car was packed with clothes and crafts galore to spend 3 days together at Cottage, how fun! Autumn had to have a bunch of tests early this morning to make sure that she was "ready" to have this lengthy chemo. In the meantime we are all "scrapbooking", a great way to pass some time together and preserve some fabulous memories.
Autumn is learning all of the terminology, it is pretty cute! She is currently taking my "blood pressure" and is giving me a "flush", which occurs each time she has chemo. It's amazing how little ones take life is stride, I learn something new every day, I appreciate something new every day, what a gift! You know in a short period of time, she has had 2 major surgeries, lost all of her hair and gets shots on a regular basis, has a portal sticking out of her skin...and she still loves to laugh...god how I wish I had that sense of innocence, that incredible ability to live in the present.
