"Mom, when you're done with this stupid chemo, we need a vacation from cancer."
Out of the mouths of babes, right?
Yes, we DO need a vacation from cancer, my goodness.
I had a bit of a respite this weekend when my friend came to visit me. (I'm not sure what she was expecting — holding my hand at my bedside? It's not that bad, believe me.) I had really looked forward to her visit and we had a great time seeing each other and catching up with our other two pals. Doing the Sunday South Congress thing, hanging out, ending at Casino El Camino for Buffalo burgers (a high protein item that comes on a whole wheat bun and you can even get these yummy oven roasted tomatoes — who knew??). It was a mini-vacation from cancer.
