I write for a hobby. I have 2 published books. 4 or 5 articles. Some pieces in anthologies. I can't even string together words on this one. Every one of us is inspired by her. She has tenacity and resilience we can't describe. Her sister, who is Daughter1 on the forum, was so heart broken when we got the news. We were all on Zoom, I could see every face, including mine, but the tears from her older sister were the final nail.I can't even begin to imagine what you're going through, and don't even want to try to imagine what your daughter is going through. She'll be in my prayers. Just remember that the vast majority of people who were the sickest eventually did recover. This too shall pass.
Emotionally we are all living in a very different zone. We have traveled to a realm, I can't fully describe. We still exist here. Doing our lives, but the colors, the textures, the feelings (different than textures) are palpable. So many people are offering prayers and support. It's remarkable, but before them, something else arrived - a clarity, an energy, a something - that thing is carrying us through. We are more nuclear than we have been - and we were tight knit before. This is elevated by miles.
Yes it will pass. When it does I look forward to the beauty we get to keep. Every day I imagine us standing before the blazing sun, silhouetted against it's light, hand in hand, launching to our appointed futures. As Princess Leia said, "It's my only hope."
Her report today is "the worseness increases". Still no fever but everything else is over the top. She's had migraine's for years, this headache beats them all. She's hanging in there, so are we.
