Always a Kid

Thursday, November 1st, 2012

Something that I've picked up on here (at home with my mother) is that you never grow up….even if you do age in number, you're still a child.  Parents will boss you around forever.

Not that I'm complaining!

It's funny how you just naturally listen to what a parent tells you and then immediately think, "I'll do what I want".  Even if you agree with them.  I remember thinking as a teenager how dumb my mom was.  Duh!  Oh, the ups & downs of parenting.  I'm seeing that same dynamic playing out in my own child-raising.  I can tell when my own kids are thinking…..I'm not the sharpest tool in the shed.

So, I'd guess it's all normal.  Right?

Today is day 4 of radiation for my mom and the effects are starting to rear their ugly head.  She's had a rough day but I'm afraid it's really just the beginning.  It's getting harder to feel helpful because with this treatment regimen no one can help….the patient just has to go through it.  It's all kinds of ugly.

Cancer is cruel but the treatments are…. even more so.

I can't tell you how thankful I am to each of you that have left messages that you're praying.  Thank you!  I'm really blessed and so is she.
