The husband had a so-so day. He got up, showered, went over more paperwork, argued with someone over the phone (delightfully standard behavior), drank his Ensure then took a nap while Susan rubbed his back.
Susan's neighbor came over with her two young boys to deliver home made food, flowers, cards and the biggest mama bear hug Susan has ever experienced. The boys told Susan that they know what it's like to have a parent with cancer.
Meanwhile, the husband's two daughters drove eleven hours to see their dad & make Susan feel as though anything were possible. They took over every time her low functioning brain couldn't navigate a simple task.
Just like their dad does for her.
