After a rough first week, Emily’s body is starting to adjust a little to daily radiation treatments. Despite feeling extremely sick, nauseous, and completely exhausted 24 hours a day for days on end, the week was not without its bright spots.
Emily’s cousin Erin is a kindergarten teacher and she had her entire class write cards and color pictures to brighten Emily’s day.
The weekend brought a welcome reprieve from radiation as well as a visit from Miles and Emily’s dear friends Nate and Melanie (you might remember them from their incredibly animated/awesome birthing photo in the EmBen t-shirt collage). Nate and Mel were able to spend a few hours hanging out and updating the Jersey City transplants on happenings from back home in Los Angeles.
And last but not least, Emily’s good college friend Laine stopped by their digs at the Marriott with a dinner feast fit for a family of twenty. Emily was very excited for the Scrippsie love, and Miles made sure that not a crumb of food went to waste.
Emily is now in her second week of radiation treatments and not feeling quite so sick. She even stayed awake long enough inbetween naps to burn through Season Three of “The Good Wife”. Any recommendations on what show she should tackle once The Good Wife is done? If so, leave them in a comment below!
