My New Normal Day 7. Brothers!!!
One of the most important things to me is my family. It's tough to have everyone living all over the country because we don't get to see each other often. Today I got to visit with one of my younger brothers whom I haven't been able to see in just over two years!
One of the perks of my new job is that I can drive two hours north west and I see my brother Jim again! Then I drive two hours north east and see my brother Andy!
Being able to see Jim today was so great! He was there for me from day one when I got sick. We were both going to school in Kzoo at the time. When I was in the ER (which he drove me to one of the three times I went there that first week) he was there holding my hand, trying to make me laugh and just being there for me. When I was going through chemo he shaved his head and kept it bald until my hair started growing back! I'm so happy to be within visiting distance from him again! So yes, today was a pretty great day because I got to see my brother again!
The picture below is of Jim and I before my hair grew back in at my 34th birthday / chemo is over party 2 years and 9 months ago:). The two baldies giving each other rabbit years! I can't quite reach above his head! Lol!
This picture is from today with Jim and I! Lots of hair on both of our heads now! Lol!!
