Anyway, this is sort of a last chance to vacation before my surgery and treatment begins, so it was just the adults this time. We had JUST planned to bring the kids to Disney for their 5th birthday and then came the diagnosis. It has been a bitter-sweet trip as we can't stop thinking about all of the things the kids would love if they were here with us. But we have also had a great time with a few of his co-workers who also won the trip. And we have met other people from within the company who are just awesome! What a great group of people and meeting some of the corporate management team has been a wonderful opportunity for Troy as well as a treat for me.
Yesterday, I was able to soak in the tub after a lot of walking at the Animal Kingdom. I managed to have a chance to say good-bye to my right "traitor" and it was sort of a nice feeling. I'm sure I will struggle this week with the reality of what will be, but it was a good-bye that was just slightly more on my terms than the terms of this stupid cancer.
I will be posting more as much as possible. It is going to be a crazy few days, but I'm hopeful that I can keep up with the blog. I feel like I have so much to say and so very much that I'd like to remember someday.
