Sitting here thinking about our latest trip to the hospital and the fact that you are joking with nurses , put the moves on the security guard while telling the nurse you prefer the good looking security guard pushes your bed down to xray brings a smile to my face ! Your breathing was irregular , and they had to unhook you in order to get you to radiology, and you still flirt !!! Are you serious??? You are a true inspiration , my hero . Of course you get some negativity going on after being continuously poked with needles , and listening to them tell you that there is yet another issue with your health , but amazingly are still able to smile , to joke , to love . Your accepting whatever comes at you will always be with me , I only wish I could accept these things with your grace ! I however get angry , Angry that you feel as though the doctors think you cry wolf, angry that they aren't more compassionate to your fight , and will to live , angry that when there's something wrong and you know it but feel guilty for saying so . I am a warrior for your health , I will stand by you , support you , FIGHT FOR YOU WITH ALL I HAVE !!! You are my mother and I love you with all I have in me ! I'm here , I will be here , I'm not going anywhere . Promises Ive made I will stand by , for if the shoe were on the other foot I know you would fight for me , as you have done so many times in past . I love you !
