Flashes of Hope



Kate's portraits came back and they are great. These are a few of the shots that I like. He did a good job of catching several of her emotions that day. The photographs will forever remind me of her at the delayed intensification stage - bald from heavy chemo, bruised from low platelets, swollen cheeks from steroids, band-aid on finger from one of the hundreds of finger pokes for blood counts yet she is still smiling and is forever an angel!









I don't love the unflattering one of me in my workout clothes - kind of wish I'd know ahead of time about the portraits - but I do love it of US).




The photographer comes to the hospital once every 2 months and encouraged us to bring the other kids next time and get a family portrait done. I think we'll take him up on that!

The word "ineffable" comes to mind. Things that are just so close to the heart that they cannot be adequatley expressed. All of you are so good. What a choice family.
