A Moment for My Mom
We are so lucky that her prognosis is a good one. I don't know what I would do without her. She was a single mom and I'm an only child and when I was growing up we just had each other. I talk to her almost everyday, she lives ten minutes from my house and she's one of my closest friends.
Her treatment experience has been challenging. Chemo was awful for her and terrible to watch-I had no way to comfort her or make her feel better. She was deeply depressed and sometimes looking back over the last few months I wonder if I did everything for her that I should have/could have. I just hope that I didn't let her down.
But today is for gratitude, as she has had her last cancer treatment. No more chemo, no more radiation. Just recovery and an opportunity to make many more memories with us. We're very very lucky. Thank you to all of you who have given words of support, prayed for my mom and been there for us. With a grateful heart.
