Dancing in the rain

Keith is beginning to feel better after chemo on Monday. He still tires easily, and his appetite isn't completely back to normal. He did feel well enough to meet a friend for breakfast this morning. I think it was good for him to be able to do that.

I think we're doing okay. For the most part, we aren't focusing on what the lab tests in two weeks will say. Keith will have to go back in to have his counts checked on Tuesday. Keith's family is gathering in Georgia to celebrate his dad's 70th birthday. We can't go if Keith's counts are too low. I guess Tuesday will give us a small indication to what the following Monday will bring. I am reminding myself not to focus too much on it.

Inside the lab at the cancer clinic, there are little sayings posted. Keith saw one on Monday that seemed very appropriate, especially for us.

Life is not about waiting until the storm passes. It's learning to dance in the rain.

I think that sums up what we have tried to do during the last 12 1/2 years. If we waited for the storms to pass, we would have missed so much!

I hope that you too can learn to dance in the rain!
