Spend those couple days trapped in the house with a 16-month-old who has a cold. Make sure this 16-month-old seriously believes that she will NEVER. WILLINGLY. GO. TO. SLEEP. AGAIN. Now you are no longer Amazing Cancer Girl; you are just an ordinary mom with streaks of snot on your sweatpants and splatters of grape-flavored Children's Dimetapp and Yo Baby yogurt on your t-shirt, and the only thing you can really focus on in your sleep-deprived haze is not your cancer but the fact that you are really, really starting to hate the little orange dinosaur on Barney, simply because he is a terrible actor and keeps bobbing his head too much. Don't quit your day job, little orange dinosaur.
It was a welcome break.
