My Personal Blog
Cut Mary's hair last night. It is starting to really settle in. I posted on facebook that I wish I could take this from her, I wish I could shoulder this burden for her. I am so incredibly helpless. I can hold the house together, a task she seems to do effortlessly while she is well. I can shuffle kids from one event to another and all the stuff that she did that I took for granted. I can't make her well. It is not so desperate. I know she will be okay in the end. I know, a year from now things will be back to normal. I know that through this whole ordeal, she will maintain a sick and morbid sense of humor. I also know that we, together, will be fine. However, I never truly grasped the horror of chemotherapy, or the enormous amounts of pressure that the treatments of cancer place on the families going through it. I pray everyday for every person and every family going through this. I want for a world which is cancer free, but would take a world with better treatments. That is what I am working for. THERE HAS TO BE A BETTER WAY!
