Day in and day out I sat at chemo and looked around at all the people that were alone. It made me so sad to see they were going through this process without friends or family by their side. I could not stand the though of it. I wanted to sit with them, talk to them, be their companion. I rarely did, and this bothered me throughout all of my treatments. When you have a newborn it is hard to sit in a common area. We often opted to have a private room so we could change, feed and allow Grace to sleep in a quiet place. We also didn’t want to disturb anyone. I have always been one to do, do, do for others and it was killing me to sit idly by. I made a promise to myself that when I got healthy enough, I would start cooking for the elderly patients at the chemo center. Today begins what will hopefully become a tradition. I spent the last two days cooking sixteen dinners for two. I had Gracie by my side giggling while I cooked and sang to her. I am so, so tired and I believe I honestly took on too much. Looking at what I accomplished, and knowing I will be making someone’s day a little brighter makes me smile, and gives me enough energy to deliver my dinners.
