Hold Back the Rain

Feels like there’s a storm on the other side of this day. Gotta let go of Cheryl’s hand and walk into it. I’m not too proud to admit this “warrior” is oscillating between resignation and terror at the hours, weeks and months ahead.

A team of doctors will soon take the first (and most important) action to save me. You can’t get out of such an experience without being humbled to your core. We are all brought low in so many ways.

Whatever strength I have to rise up again comes from a sense of love and connection to a family, a community and a world that I’m not ready to leave. A million thanks to everyone for the thoughtful calls, emails and comments.

Let’s do this.
