Keep on Going!

The last few weeks of Chemotherapy have been rough.  We are almost done with our 8th treatment, and Bailey is having a rough time.  She is tired all the time and is beginning to lose some of her hair.

The reality of all of this is hard on everyone....And I try to make sure Bailey knows, that it is okay to "fall apart"....To have bad days.  She tries so hard to put on a good face...But one can only do that for so long.

“The strongest oak of the forest is not the one that is protected from the storm and hidden from the sun. It’s the one that stands in the open where it is compelled to struggle for its existence against the winds and rains and the scorching sun.” -Napoleon Hill (1883-1970)

We have realized, as a family, just how strong we can be.  We have learned to lean on each other and focus our energy on ways to keep our spirits up.

The kids are out for summer and Bailey is really looking forward to going to camp.  It's a time away from Chemo and doctors...A time that she can just be a kid, and enjoy life.

As always, we will continue to THRIVE ON!
