"I'm Tired of this Road"
Jillian looked straight ahead and said, "No, I'm just tired of going down this road." Oh, I could have said a number of things in reply....all the positive, upbeat, inspirational things we hear every day. But sometimes, you just don't need to hear them. Sometimes, your just plain sick of going down this road. Sick of driving to U of M. Sick of Dr. appointments. Sick of the radiation, sick of the infusions, sick of the blood work, sick of the scans. Sick of the hair loss, sick of being tired. Sick of seeing my daughter having to go through this on a daily basis. Sick, Sick, Sick of this road!! And that's okay. It is all okay. So I replied, "Yeah....me too".
We had a nice evening together after manicures, pizza in our room, a movie and a lots of back rubs/leg rubs/foot rubs/hand rubs. In spite of the road that got us here, we can still enjoy those simple moments. Those priceless moments that I will never again take for granted. The time spent with my family has never been sweeter.
