My Gypsy Mother/Nurse/Best Friend/Everything I need in a Mom!
Steve... trying to take care of me when my Mom can't... Still
On Friday morning my Mom aka My Gypsy left for San Francisco for school board meetings. She has been gone now a total for 3 days and well... the house hasn't burnt down yet! No, Corbin, Daryl, and Devin and I have done a great job making sure the laundry is done and the kitchen is clean an everyone is fed. Steve has helped as well. I didn't realize though how much stuff I do with my Mom. I spend everyday with her and well, we do everything together basically. Its been really weird without her here. I found myself lonely at times but she hired a great babysitter, Hannah, to watch me. Don't get me wrong I love my Dad and he's done a great job, but these past 3 days soon to be 4 I have realized how much I do with my Mom. And how easy she makes this cancer thing for me. She always is so good to make sure I'm eating, taking the right medicines, and doing anything and everything I need to do. Something as simple as making sure the water is cold to drink. I think I have the best mom in the whole world! With her gone I had to do a lot on my own, or Hannah had to. Hannah did a great job playing nurse while my Mom was gone. Thanks Hannah. But I cannot wait for Monday at 6:00 for when my Mom gets home. It'll be so nice to finally have her back!
To ease with the anxiety of not having my mother, I had a visit from my second Mother, Ann Tempest and her daughter my best friend Diane. They also brought a surprise, sugar cookies and Baby Stephen! It was so nice to have visitors I felt like my mom was practically home! Ann helped raise me my whole child hood and she's been such a great help during this hard time. She's a professional at this cancer thing and knows all the tricks and, well she just knows everything. Stephen loved playing with Porsche and Diane is always a good visitor. She makes sure to come at least once a week. She's been my best friend since 1st grade in Mrs. McGavins class and we've been best friends since!
After Ann, Diane, and Stephen left my Aunt Cathy, John, my cousin Landon and his wife Jenny and their daughter Taylor, Stella (Cathy was babysitting), Chez, and her friend Amber all came for a visit. We had a house full! But it was fun having the little girls running around. Stella wasn't in a good mood but by the time she left I had her laughing and smiling finally! Cathy and John have been so good to me. They have been my biggest supporters and are always there making sure I'm ok and always checking on me. They come to all my games as well as Corbin's and they are just such great support for not only myself but my whole family. They are so great! Taylor is getting so big! She's going to be way tall I can just tell. Stella will be the little dancer and Taylor can be our basketball player! It was a fun day though to have so many visitors.
The weekend is now over and well spring break is starting for the kids on Monday. The snow is melting so maybe Spring Break will actually look like Spring. That would be nice. Its been a great weekend but I am so ready for my Mom to come home. Thanks to everyone though who helped make the time go by faster! I have such a great supporting cast behind me. Without them I wouldn't be able to get through this as easily as I have. I have such great friends and family and I am so thankful for you guys! I love you all and thanks again! Especially to My Dad and Hannah who have spent the weekend taking care of me. I love you guys! Thanks Hannah for spending the weekend with me. I know there's some dance or something better you could be doing. You're the bestest friend ever! I don't know what I'm going to do when you graduate in 2 weeks!! Well time to go BBQ since the weather is good :) FINALLY! Have a great Sunday everyone.
Cathy and John! Always there to support at all my games and anything! Thanks :)
Nurse Hannah is always there. She's the greatest!
