We took the kids downtown on Sunday to visit Mom. She is wearing a scarf of my Mother-in-law Kerstin's. She said it gives her strength. Mom fights the fight Kerstin never had a chance to.
The kids thought everything was cool.....especially all the treats that Grandma still managed to have.
Mom said Evan looked like he was going to spend the day in the Hampton's! That's how we roll!
Seriously, how beautiful is my Mom? She looks amazing and this is 5 days after her stem cell transplant and 6 days after a wicked little bottle of chemo.
Lauren is wearing a strand of Kerstin's coral beads. We are on this journey together with her spirit guiding us. We love you and miss you Kerstin. Mom, you are a rock star. You never fail to impress me. I love you more than you will ever know. xoxoxoxoxo You are a survivor. Remission here we come. This will all be worth it in the end! My sister said today, "Look how far we have already come."
And to all those amazing people on the 15th floor of Prentice Hospital, we thank you for your friendship and encouragement. We couldn't do it without you. You are all hero's in our book.
