life is precious.....

Yesterday we met with my dads doctor. The news was scary to say the least. My dad did research on his condition which stated he may have up to 5yrs to live, but the doctor shot that down with the true reality which is 1yr if he's lucky. This is devastating to all of us, but mostly my mother.
My heart aches for my mother and father, more than I have ever felt pain. To see them hold each other and cry in such sorrow was the worst I have ever felt. I have lots many to this disease but for some reason this is so much more painful.
We all decided that they will come live with us. The schedule between chemo and life is just going to get to crazy that we want to keep some sort of normalcy. It only makes since that they come live with us, we have plenty of room. Plus I need to be able to keep watch on my mother as well.
From the time I was able I have been caring for my mother. A really tall task for an only child. But a task I took on just the same. She's the only mother I have ever had and she deserves all I can give her. Right now she needs my strength and comforts. I have this and am willing to give it to her.
My spouse has been amazing through this entire process. I was a little scared to ask him about the moving in of my parents. But he quickly made that a non issue and l am blessed to have him by my side.
I have more faith in the lord than I think I ever have. I lean on his strength to get me through ever day, even more so now.

I am grateful you have the opportunity to help your family... No one seems to realize how important it is until there is a tragedy of some kind... You are doing a very good, very kind thing... In truth, I don\'t believe you would do otherwise... Take good care of yourself during this time of taking care of your family... You are so very important to me...
