Cancer and Stay for the Credits on Walle


Bald is Beautiful-the upside of cancer

Jennifer has finished the radiation (30 days) and only has 6 chemo treatments to go. We spent most of the month of the June in the hospital because of pain and infections. Instead of finishing in August, it looks like now it may be September/October. My daughter is holding up nicely and if it's possible to settle into the situation, I think we have-such is life and the cards we've been dealt...yada yada yada.

On those few days when she feels well enough to participate in normality, we grab it with all the gusto of a PMS insomnia induced night at the sewing machine-you quilters and sewers know what I'm talking about.

Such was yesterday and we went to see a movie-Walle. Jennifer liked it and I did too. Pixar is a master at saying a lot without saying anything.

Warning:::We left before the credits finished and now I'm hearing, you need to stay and watch the credits. Apparently this is a trend in movies-not just funny outtakes, but, essential to the plot. Soooo if you go, wait till the very end and tell me what we missed!

Shhhhh.....I'm working on a baby quilt and I think she's watching, so I'm going to show it when it's finished.

Wall-E totally looks like the robot from "Short Circuit"... minus the cheesy 80's style

WooHoo! It must feel great to have the radiation treatments all done. Hope the remaining chemo treatments are easy ones *s*

To you and your daughter...
Of all the frescoes I've seen here in Italy the one I like most is that of Giotto in the Scrovengi Chapel in Padua. I depicts a series of stories culminating in Chrit's crucifixtion and resurrection. I like it as a fresco because it can't be picked up and hung elsewhere. It fills the walls, big enough for those who stand looking to draw their wn conclusions. For me its message is clear. It shows we can and are able to be free of our past. Surviving it will make us stronger in the knowledge that the best is yet to come.

Hi Julie

I can't begin to imagine the roller-coaster you are going through with your daughter's cancer. What a beautiful young woman. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

It's hard to keep those quilts secret when you blog! Can't wait to see it. :)

30 days of radiation is a great milestone to pass, she is so lucky to have you by her side during this time.
