Friday was the day we had been planning to leave on our road trip. But with the realization that the cancer is already back and extremely active, we were stunned and didn’t know what to do. We talked through several variations of our road trip and knew we wouldn’t be making it to Alaska right now, but thought maybe a shorter alternative might be good. Shannon ran errands to prepare for departure while I spent the entire day in bed feeling paralyzed by everything. I came to the conclusion that if I have two bumps then there must be undiscovered others. I did a thorough examination and sure enough found another. When Shan got home all we could do was lay in bed. To help clear our heads, we watched a PBS American Experience episode on the Kennedys…a great distraction. Not living through this era, we only knew bits and pieces of the family legacy so it was interesting to see the whole sequential story. Truly a family that has coped with tragedy. For tonight, we would ultimately just sleep on things.
