Yesterday was number three in a series of eight chemo sessions for Rachel; her friend Brooke went with her and took this picture. While there have been side effects (headaches, insomnia, times when food doesn't taste good), she hasn't had trouble with nausea so far. She goes to work every day. Unbelievable, right?
My daughter is tougher than YOUR daughter!
I'm kidding, of course. All of us have an inner strength that we aren't really aware of until necessity forces us to use it.
I've always thought it unfair that both my kids seemed to inherit their all their looks from Cliff's side of the family. Neither of them got my curly hair or brown eyes. But finally we have found something in Rachel that she got from me: Her head is the exact same shape as mine! We would never have realized this if she hadn't lost all her hair.
The only thing I seem to have passed on to my granddaughters is my big feet. Of all things for them to inherit, why that?
