How wonderful that your mother has the baby and the wedding. I am a big believer in people being able to will their bodies onward for some major event. Certainly, the more motivated someone is, the easier it is to make it through the chemotherapy. The travel sounds wonderful and am so glad to hear your mom is feeling good. Sometimes even if someone is feeling good it's wise to have something like a wheelchair when you travel to avoid incredible exhaustion. My mother could walk around but when we did things that were going to involve a lot of walking, we talked her into a rented wheelchair. We found one that was black, small, and very chic as my mother had real fashion sense and didn't want something 'that makes me look like an invalid.' Make sure your mom stays very well hydarted, especially if you're going on any planes and that she stretches her legs often... And I hope YOU enjoy this trip too as once you have this wonderful baby you will see how Spain becomes something you see on a 'Sesame Street' segment in your living room and travel gets difficult! I can tell how supportive your whole family is of your mom and I can tell your mother has great inner resolve which will help so much. Claudia
