A year has passed. Another year in this journey.
Many things have changed, we’ve experienced new things, re-experienced old ones. Like a painting where the scene has changed back the background stays the same.
Enjoying the present as much as possible.
Afraid of what the future will bring.
Even in times of quiet there is always that thought at the back of my mind… will tomorrow be that day.
We’ve made it another year. A year that didn’t start with the right foot but slowly turned to the better.
And what better way to celebrate this occasion than with another surgery (thankfully it was relatively minor).
So here we are at the hospital recuperating. And hope to leave soon.
Hoping for a great year of health and happiness!
Four years and a lifetime ago today he woke up screaming in pain and vomiting
Four years and a lifetime ago we drove to the hospital not knowing what would happen
Four years and a lifetime ago we waited an hour, two hours, four hours, eight hours in the hospital waiting room
Four years and a lifetime ago…
Life has changed so much since then.
There have been ups and downs, two steps forward and one step back. Sometimes one step forward and two steps back.
Days of fun and play, where we could almost forget reality.
Almost. But not quite, and not completely.
Every day is a struggle. Some more than others.
We are on a journey that we never planned. With no map, no roads, no directions, no signs. The way is never easy, and full of surprises. But as the saying goes, it’s like fighting a gorilla. You don’t stop when you are tired. You stop when the gorilla is tired. And this gorilla doesn’t seem to know the meaning of the word tired.
So here we are again. 4 years later.
The fight is still on. And we don’t plan on losing anytime soon.
