Getting Away, May 2010

posted by:

We took a short vacation up to the Michigan Upper Peninsula two weeks ago.  It was the first time we were actually able to get away in two years.  Brooklyn went with us, so it was nice to have some one-on-one time with her.  She’s gone through a lot the last few years.  She’s becoming such a little lady. 

We are anticipating the first reconstructive surgery at the University of Chicago Hospital, scheduled for the end of August.  This Memorial Day weekend marks the one year anniversary of the cancer diagnosis-it’s hard to believe it’s only been a year.  In many ways it feels like it’s been five.
