This weekend Alan started his last cycle of chemotherapy. Per the usual drill, he will be swallowing pills twice a day for the next two weeks. In the meantime, there will be lots of praying that his cancer will disappear completely, so that by March, when he goes in for a check up, everything will look good. This is important that everything look good because he needs to be cancer-free so that they can do one last surgery. And then, after that, everything can go back to normal and we can devote our lives to chasing our dreams with a vengeance, instead of talking about “The Bag.” And this will be a sweet, sweet time in our lives, perhaps we will even give it a new name, The Dream Era we will call it.
This weekend, I also helped Denise throw a pizza party for the Cambodian school at the Tully library and then I helped her pack up her life with Justin from the past three years into neat and tidy boxes so that they could begin a new chapter in their lives in their first house!
