Good Lord, Have Mercy

OK. BR has MS like few others. Gina has a brain tumor.

But did you know...

My mother has been in and out of the hospital for a year with recurring bladder and bowel infections. She's now in a nursing home, and my father is relocating to be closer.

My sister who overcame breast cancer is now in line for a hysterectomy.

My sister who has been unable to successfully conceive for several years is now in her second trimester.

My godchild who is one of the most gifted track and field athletes in Illinois history is struggling with her classwork. And I love her.

And I love her.

You are together- just the safety valve blowing out extra steam.
Life is bloody hard work and there aint nothing worse than suffering in loved ones.
Sharing their pain is part of caring. Sharing your pain is allowing yourself to be cared for.
I think a post listing the items is a great way of keeping real about things. My biggest worry is seldom a specific thing- it is EVERYTHING!
