What a busy summer we are having. I didn't sign the boys up for any camps or events because my plan was to spend the summer enjoying the pool. Seems like as usual, life has different plans

I haven't posted much lately. Seems like we're just too busy living life and I like that. We have a ton of plans for the summer which include the beach, the pool, relaxing and a very special vacation. You see, it's time. Joshua is finishing up with treatment. We're ready to put the cancer behind us and move ahead. We're ready to not only start a new chapter in life, but a whole new book. While we'll never be able to forget about the cancer and while Joshua will have to have follow up appointments his whole life, we can put the blood draws, blood counts, spinal taps and chemo behind us. We can let him walk into a store without wearing a mask or take a vacation and not have to worry about how close the hospital is to us. Some of this things will happen right away and some are still down the road, but they are coming.

I was always a modest child. Growing up, there was never any fear of me showing skin as a teenager and I don't even think I used the word penis in public until I had Noah. Boy has that changed since then. First, as you all know Joshua had a testicular relapse 2 years ago. All three of my boys had to have special appointments set up to be circumcised because they were such tiny babies, and then Joshua wouldn't stop bleeding so we had to rush him back to the doctor so that they could put silver nitrate on it to stop the bleeding. OUCH! And now we have more to add to more to our boy part adventures.

Spring break is supposed to be full of fun, sun and sand. Ours was planned for the wonderful Outer Banks and some relaxation. We had planned for a few roller coaster just not the roller coaster of life.

What a week. Seems like the winter isn't quite over at least on the illness front. Joshua has come down with a nasty cough for which he was prescribed steroids. He will finish them today and start them again on Tuesday for his chemo schedule. He also has a nasty ear and sinus infection so he's on an antibiotic for that and needs daily nebs for the cough. Adam is also getting nebs for his cough and therefore is moody as that is an inhaled steroid. And finally, the dog seems to be allergic to something, I think it's her food, and she has scratched spots on her body that required a trip to the vet for you guessed it, steroids!

I don't usually write much about Adam. He's such an easy going child that there isn't much to say. He's a great kid that is generally healthy and I am so grateful for that. He is smart as a whip, has a very extensive vocabulary of which I never know what new word he may use, and he is so excited about being 5, going to kindergarten, losing his teeth and just being like his big brother. But I just have to tell you all about a few things Adam has said/done over the past few weeks that have given me a little chuckle. I think God gave me Adam just so he could do these things on days that I really need a laugh.

One day, they tell me, that I will look back at this time and laugh. One day, they tell me, to take at a time. One day, they say, I will miss these days.

Being a parent is tough. I mean, you have to make decisions that will impact your children for the rest of their lives. Sometimes parenting just isn't fun!
