Life has been crazy lately, especially the last few days. There have been a lot of factors, but easily the biggest has been watching my sweet mother deal with cancer and now radiation the past couple of months. I haven’t really said much about it to anyone which is probably not great.
Guys, it’s tough watching such an amazing person be put in a position where they can feel so drained and inadequate. It hasn’t been the cancer, but the results of the cancer that have been the toughest. She doesn’t look the same and it has been hard for her, which in turn is hard for me to watch happen. I know as time goes on and radiation is over the doctors will be able to help her face heal in a way that she will look “normal”, but it’s tough. I’m drained and I’m not even the one dealing with any of it!! I love my mom sooooooo much no matter what she looks like or what others may think of her when she’s running errands. She has an inner beauty that is absolutely unmatched! Sorry if this is a bit much, I’ve suppressed a lot and feel I need to share for my sake.
Here are a couple of the family pictures the weekend before her first surgery.
TLDR: Cancer sucks, life’s been tough, but school’s almost out so yay!
