most recently i took a trip to philadelphia to visit my family. my luggage was lost for 2 days. this was the first day i had “clean” clothes! but, that isn’t the worst thing that’s happened this year. in philadelphia, my 2 year old darling nephew was amidst proton therapy treatments for brain cancer. i went to help with appointments while his mother (my sister) had yet another precious baby boy. while i don’t typically write about personal matters, this turn of events have changed my life and was year-long emotional battle for my family. while i was in philadelphia, my family and i went to lunch at the white dog cafe. we enjoyed mushroom sliders and iced tea: something we’ve been unable to do as a family for months! i am so proud of my sister and her family for having the strength to get through this tumultuous year. i am happy to say that today marks a special day for my nephew. he will ring a bell indicating his last proton therapy treatment. wish i were there!
