A little help from our friends goes a long way

Shannon has such a warm, generous spirit, even with everything we’ve been going through. Laughter is one thing we have a surplus of in our house. Last night over a bucket of fried chicken I asked for a breast, and we proceeded to lose it. Then her friends came over tonight to play a board game to get our minds off things. When we were deciding the order of play, Shannon stated “I’ve got breast cancer, so I get to go first.” I love that woman.

No hospital update tonight other than we’ve been there for appointments and tests everyday this week. Last round is tomorrow. I wonder if MedCenter One offers a punch card. I’m thinking nine visits get your tenth free.
