Perspective

It’s been a stressful few weeks.

It has been a little over a year since David finished his RAI treatment.  The newest Endocrinologist changed his medication and his Graves seems to be stabilized.  His TED?  It is a lot worse.  I have been driving since Christmas.  It took a lot for him to admit he really shouldn’t be driving any more.  He’s a strong and proud man and this was a difficult thing for him.

We’ve both had a very difficult time at work, being passed over for new jobs and raises.  It has sucked and been hard on both of us.

This week, our neighbor was shot and killed by his mother in law.  It has been surreal.  I don’t even know what to say about it and it is really not my place to expand on, but needless to say, it has been difficult.

I’ve taken the last 24 hours to listen and really hear what my family is saying.  I relish the sound of my husband’s heart beat and the joy in the kids eyes when we are all together.  I can’t imagine waking up in the morning and saying good bye to my husband to st art my day only to come home later as a widow.

I worry so much about his health and how much longer we have with him on our terms but you never know, do you?  We just need to keep loving and supporting one another and reminding those we love just how much we love them.
