A Long Wait

February 19, 2009

Today would have been your 5th chemotherapy treatment.

We left bright and early, just like always.  I had all of your blood work done yesterday.  Something I found helps as it’s one less thing you have to be subjected to on treatment day.  It also saves us about an hour or so at CSU.

As usual I watch as you pad down the hallway and are led through the doors before I turn and walk away.  The treatment is about 90 minutes so my dad, who has accompanied us today, and I head to breakfast.

We arrive back an hour later and I check in at the desk so they can let the doctor know that we are back.  I don’t want Cain to have to wait any longer than he has to and he should be ready at any moment.

We wait a long time.
