Day 1: Almost Done!

Well, today is Day 1: Seems like it's been taking forever with everything today. When we got here at Foothills this morning, we were put in an outpatient room, just until ours was cleaned and ready. Well it was 3pm before we got to "move in" to our room up here. Then chemo didn't get started until about 330pm. Then again, we have no where else to be, so what's the rush. I guess we're both just anxious for this last "mad dash" to the finish line! It's starting to sink in that this is the end of this portion of our journey.....feels almost like we took a really intense condensed university degree, HANDS ON, on how to deal with cancer! I have learned more about the human body, and about what nurses do, than i ever thought possible, honestly they are special people, and now i'm sure that i am not meant to be one, except with my own family, heehee!
It has been getting progressively more difficult for us to leave our boys. They are settling in good with Nana and Papa, but when we call often....it's tough for Corban because it just reminds him that we're not there with him! Hold on buddy! We're almost done!
Please pray that all goes well so we can in fact be home for Christmas! That has been our one wish since we began this process!
On a lighter note, Colin is almost done day one of chemo, well, almost half done, but again, we have nowhere else to be, so hopefully the time goes fast and we can be done soon!
Honestly i never thought we'd ever get to this point.....the time has gone fast, but slow, i don't know how else to explain it, in the moment, it has been slow, but as a whole, it's been fast!

Well, i'm gonna go lay with Colin and watch the News, hopefully supper will come soon!

luv, Melissa
