A year ago today, Little Warrior got her face painted, and played carnival games, and wore a costume, and trick or treated.
And then we left the hospital.
One year ago, she was completely bald, with no eyelashes or eyebrows, and so very skinny.
How is it possible that it was only one year ago? Surely it was at least 5.
My dad called tonight. My godfather died today from the flu. We are sad, but truth is, mentally he died a few years ago. A brilliant book man, talented musician, brought down by Parkinson's.
The Lord giveth and the Lord taketh away. Blessed be the name of the Lord.
