Measuring the distance between us. Always too far.
Another 6 hours on the machine and a 3.8 million collection. Another day tomorrow and a small price. Our nurse today, ethereal and wise, shared part of her story. Her son was diagnosed with Leukemia at age 3 and spent 5 years on and off treatment for that as well as a secondary cancer. A doctor suggested "slow learner" developed into an incredibly accomplished man; aeronautical engineering, attending Stanford, creating a blood test to best match cancer treatments to patients (and more) and he was absolutely adored. Sadly, he died in an auto accident at 23. His mother is gentle and light; a painful reminder of the heaviness people carry in their hearts. I researched his obituary and being a cancer survivor wasn't even mentioned. I wonder if this will be our whole life or simply a part. I am smitten with the idea of abundance over longevity. Overflowing fullness.
