The day after my first chemo, I flew with my 10-year old son to Disneyland, Legoland and Seaworld.
Here is what I did the day after chemo:
Here is what I did on the other days.
We played, took naps, hung out and had a very good time. Things didn’t get emotional for me until Seaworld, when we did the dolphin interaction. It was just so real and big — the fact that this one thing, I would never, ever do, if I did not know I was going to die. Forking the $90 over for the disc filled with pictures just felt so ….inadequate. The finality of the once-in-a-lifetime experience, so deeply sad.
And the memory so beautiful.
