When last week’s chemotherapy session was canceled due to low platelet counts, Emily’s doctor recommended rest. The timing could not have been better. On Monday night, Emily and Miles packed up Ginny and headed to Sacramento for a Taylor family Thanksgiving and a getaway that promised lots of rest and pampering for Emily. Their holiday trip included a spectacular meal prepared by Aunt Suzanne, and picturesque walks with Ginny in the autumn leaves. By Friday, Emily felt rejuvenated enough to watch Miles in his alumni basketball game, and rallied to attend a few hours of Miles’ 10-year high school reunion. Emily, Miles, Rich, and Michele are now back in LA for today’s 6th round of chemotherapy feeling rested, restored, and counting their many blessings.
