Matt's 5th treatment is behind us and we have had a "Non-Chemo Week!" I have grown to love these weeks for many reasons. They are the days that we check our "equipment" and take some water breaks. Checking our "equipment" usually means that we evaluate our heart, body and soul for neglect from the previous week. "Chemo Week" can cause us to become mentally, physically and emotionally tired and weak. Although we push through with a positive attitudes, we do have times that we weep from from exhaustion. Matt is a true fighter, very seldom does he complain or want things to change because how of he feels. On those rare occasions that he becomes bruised and weak, we are able to use not only medical means to help, but prayer and faith in God's plan to get him back in the game. Okay, sometimes humor helps too.
Today is Thursday, Friday Eve! Not only is tomorrow Friday and the Homecoming Game, but we will celebrate Matt and his birthday. Many adults respond with "It's just another year," or "I stopped counting years ago!" (I am guilty) Well guess what? Team Fouch has decided we will embrace each and every year, and celebrate! We will continue to count the blessings we have and treat each day as a gift. Since we can't go back to yesterday, and we do not know what tomorrow brings, we need to cherish today and everyone that is part of our lives!
I just wanted to write a quick update, I must continue preparing to celebrate Matt! Bring on the cake, balloons, steamers and the gift of time!
Hugs to all, Jill
