I don't think I've told you this and I apologize for not doing it sooner. JohnnyBeGood you are one of my hero's and let me explain why.
Some people say that hero's are people that save children from burning buildings or someone who stops a woman from being accosted by someone else with evil intent, or even the fictional like Superman who saves the world...and yes, they are hero's, then there are the hero's such as yourself. Of course you don't think you're a hero (a hero never thinks they are)but you are to me.
I aspire to be as gracious, as brave, as kindhearted as yourself.
You have been through so much and continue to go through even much more, and yet you have taken the time to encourage others, you take the time to reach out and touch others with encouragement, with your heart, your soul and your being...and that my dear is all of the requirements to be a hero.
Today you are not doing well, but your mama said you are keeping water and crackers down, do you see why I think your a hero? Because we all know that in the shape you are in you are still working so hard, we know that being able to nibble on that cracker, to take that sip of water requires so much will power and we are so proud that you are DOING IT!!!
Even though a part of you has said enough, you show in your heart and soul that it isn't. That you are willing to go through the gates of hell and back to survive, but not for yourself, but for your husband, for your family, you are selfless.
As for this little setback, you can do this, you can recover quite nicely, it's just another rough spot in this world of cancer, a rough spot you are already overcoming.
I'm proud to know you, I'm proud to stand by and with all my being wish you well through this TEMPORARY rough spot, you are one of my heros.
Now keep eating those crackers and work your way up to soup. You keep going on, you keep being you.
I love you girl for who you are, and thank you for being who you are.
