Gratitude



The answering machine is constantly blinking lately

Messages of Goodwill, Friendship and Prayers


You see, my husband is going through some things
 right now and his many many many friends and family
 are leaving small 
snippets of love

He has endured receiving a life altering Heart Transplant many years ago, many seemingly small events since 
but now, the ultimate 
the big C 
has crossed his path to test his faith

We are not a God following family 
although as a boy he attended many a church sermon 
and played the role of altar boy

His broken body is wracked with constant pain 
from this devil inside and it has almost broken him  
The treatments are a bitch
 and he is enduring humiliation
 that I believe he would never or could never 
have contemplated in his short life

The many hospitals and their wonderful staff 
that are involved in his care have taken a toll
 and he just wants to zap the shit out of this invasive intrusion and get on with his life

Through the support of our families 
and the multitude of friends 
that we have acquired over the years 
we will beat this demon, you can bet your ass

Thank you for being there 
words cannot express our gratitude

~~

Peace Love and Huge Hugs

  1. I just prayed for him. You are so right. Cancer is a demon, and I hate it so much. I hope and pray that he kicks it hard.

    Love you and am thinking of you.
