Staring Into The Abyss

She goes in for another MRI in the morning, just to keep track of the monster.

We spend a lot of time together not talking about it, but today she told me that she knew that the average was 5-8 years from diagnosis. That gives her 3-6 years, depending on how stubborn she is. She wants to see Chris graduate, he's ten, so she wants to beat the average by at least two years.

Even, she says, if she has to do it from her bed.

I told her I wanted her to stick around for as long as she could, but that I didn't want her to be in pain.

After that we talked about something else.
