It’s not easy. Just when I thought I was getting better, I got worse. I have an ear infection, and it woke me up this morning with popping and then fluid draining out of it. It hurt. It still does. I had to cancel my dentist appointment, and go see the doctor. As miserable as I was, I kept smiling. I was not going to let it get me down.
Before I went to the doctor, I caught my sister on Facebook. That doesn’t happen that often. She lives in a different state, has a really busy schedule, and is fighting Leukemia. She had a doctor appointment today to see if she was in remission. She also told me she has been suffering from depression. This fight with Leukemia has been hard for her. When I got home from seeing the doctor, I checked her update, and she isn’t in remission. I just want to go down to FL and put my arms around her. She needs help, and I am too far away. Her husband has been great, really supportive of her needs. I just wish we lived in the same state, and town.
I don’t understand what she is going through. I don’t know a lot about Leukemia. I do know that it is physically and mentally taking it’s toll on her. I worry about her. She was up here last month, and seemed to be doing good. But that is my sister. She puts up a good front. If she can, I can. Even though today was tough for me, I can keep smiling. I’ll get better. I just hope my sister will, too.
