We had a good day! Vic was up for a bit – she even went to pick up Jon-Daniel from school. It was the first time in 7 weeks that she has driven. It could not have happened on a better day. At 09:30 this morning Jared BBM’d me asking me to come pick up Jon-Daniel from school. He passed Jon-Daniel in the passage and Jon-Daniel was crying. Jon-Daniel said he was worried about his Mom!
Vicky dragging her sick body to school to pick up Jon-Daniel defused today.
Vic received beautiful messages from Tatum and Muriel today. It meant so much to her. Dying is a lonely journey. Vic inability to function as a healthy person has isolated her from the world. Even when people come to visit she is often sleeps through the visit.
I was rubbing cream into her little feet tonight and she looked down and said “Mommy, my head and feet are really quite close together…” We just packed up laughing!
I remember in 2007 when Vic was so desperately ill, I said to her that my heart hurts all the time. That I think of her every second of the day and that life did not feel worth living. Vic replied: “Oh Mommy that is so sad! At least once a week the boys and I laugh so much that my tummy hurts from laughing!”
Things that I take for granted is an EVENT in Vic’s life…laughing, having coffee in bed with her boys, tucking them in, fetching them from school… I love this beautiful, brave child of mine.
Please God let tomorrow be another good day!
