My mom’s Birthday was on Saturday and we had such a great day celebrating. I asked her what she wanted to do for her Birthday and was really hoping to spoil her with something fun since she’s done nothing but serve me and my family for the past 6 weeks. All she wanted was to go to the fabric store so I could pick out fabric so she could re upholster my kitchen chairs. So, that’s what we did. We spent her Birthday looking for an awesome gift for me. That’s how amazing she is. Before we did that she played play dough with Lincoln while I was teaching a yoga class. I came home to this masterpiece. Then we made a real cake and the boys loved playing with the candles and singing Happy Birthday. We finished off the night watching the last few episodes of “Parenthood” one of our favorite shows. I love my mom so much and really don’t know what I’d do without her.Lincoln was supposed to start the next phase of treatment tomorrow, but they came and tested his blood on Thursday and his counts weren’t high enough. He has to have an absolute neutrophil count of over 750 and his was only at 45. So now they’ll test his blood this Thursday and hopefully start Consolidation on Monday the 5th. While this is disappointing because it prolongs everything a week and I want this whole thing to be over as soon as possible, it’s kind of nice to have no medications for a whole week. Lincoln will feel good all week and we don’t have to fight giving him any meds. It should be a really good week. So that is what I will embrace. I’m going to try not to think about Consolidation and the challenges and sickness it will bring and just enjoy Lincoln while he’s feeling good. I just wish we could have friends over and go places. At least we have grammy here for a little while longer. Cheers to that.
