Wednesday was rough, as Kristen mentioned in her post. Thursday and Friday were better, but the drive home to Outlook on Friday was a little rough - we were all feeling tired and hungry, which made for some cranky moments, especially between Kolbjorn and Birgitte. At one point I pulled the van over to the side of the road and threatened to make them both get out and walk for a while - that's not a normal event in our family trips. We only stayed a couple nights in Saskatoon this week, due to some other appointments in Outlook, so I think we were all getting tired of driving back and forth.
This next week is going to be busy:
- Monday will be radiation for Kol, followed by the PICC line insertion.
- Tuesday will be Birgitte's MRI scan for her epilepsy - that'll take most of the morning, and then Kol has his radiation in the afternoon, and I believe we'll also be meeting with the radiation oncologist again (Tuesday afternoons are when he has regular appointments with his patients).
- Wednesday will be radiation and chemotherapy for Kol, while the girls (Julianna, Mari, and Birgitte) are probably going to head down to Regina to spend some time with Ulla and her crew.
- Thursday and Friday are radiation treatments, no other appointments or treatments scheduled (at least so far). Hopefully we'll be able to find some time to go out with Kolbjorn and have some fun.
I'm hoping that we'll get a good chance to recover this weekend - get some sleep, relax a bit, spend some time with family and friends, and just try to decompress before next week hits us. Speaking of sleep, I'm overdue for some, so I'll just end this here.
