Thanks everyone for your wonderful words of encouragement. We are home now. We got home yesterday at around 5pm. Lauren is doing great. She is usually really tired after chemo, but this time she seems to have a little more energy. She decided she needed yet another haircut. Her new short pixie cut was getting too thin. So last night her boyfiend, Giovanni, (he is also a barber) cut her hair even shorter. It is closer to her head. Kind of looks like baby hair. She likes it much better. The best news is my son, Ryan, (aka Wolverine) finally broke down and got all his hair cut off to support Lauren. My handsome boy is back! Gio is getting his hair cut short tonight. My husband, Mark, is getting his cut short next week. He has to film some training videos for his company next week and didn't want to have a shaved head for that.
Margaret- You have to be one of the sweetest people. Offering us a place to stay if the weather is bad. I just love you. Unfortunately, we are not anywhere near Green Bay, but thank you so much. We live in Uniontown, Ohio , near Canton, Ohio. An hour away from Cleveland. It is 200 miles to Michigan. (A little over 3 hrs. each way.) I am praying that things get easier for you.
Thanks again, everyone. I don't know what I would do without you.
My beautiful daughter, Lauren Patrice, will live on in my heart forever.
