We made it! Climbed that Everest and got ourselves all the way to North Adams and MassMoCA. As I wrote in the last post we've tried a couple of times and our plans were foiled. Third time turns out to be the charm. That morning was a bit touch and go. Karen's sleep cycle has been completely screwed up. We don't know what is causing it; whether the chemo, other medications or the cancer. Or a combination of all.
In any case we arrived by early afternoon. We enjoyed the art and especially the repurposed industrial complex that houses MassMoCA. The Nick Cave football field size exhibition room was an overwhelming immersive experience.
Every time we're able to get out for something besides treatment is something of a victory. We followed that museum trip up the next day with a trip to the supermarket. Still hard, but we fight the small and the large.
Frankly though I want to scream that it shouldn't be this hard to enjoy something as simple as a trip to a museum.
It's a fight, a hard fight.
