My girls and I hanging out on my bed
I was in bed one afternoon feeling the full effects of the RSD (Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy). I had just finished crying from the intense pain I was experiencing when my daughters, Brooklynn and Kelsey, knocked on the door asking if they could come in. They both found comfy spots to lounge on my bed so we could “hang” and watch TV together while I nodded off here and there.
Each time I opened up my eyes and saw them lying there
it brought comfort to my heart and soul.
Here were two teenage girls that would rather “hang” with their sick Mom
in her bed than do anything else. I am
truly blessed to have such loving and caring children.
The last time I nodded off, before they went to bed, I
woke to find that my beautiful daughters’ had been transformed into freaky
walrus’. I began to laugh hysterically
at the sight before me. “How long have
the two of you been sitting there like that?” I asked. Kelsey’s response was, “I don’t know maybe
20-15 minutes.” I chuckled at what she
had said for that is not a typo. That is how she ALWAYS describes time frames…but
that is a whole other blog post.
