My heart was so anxious this weekend. I saw family that I hadn’t seen in years.
It was bittersweet due to the fact that we all got together because of cancer.
I didn’t want My grandparents to see me cry, especially my grandpa Dan. Seeing him with tubes and an oxygen tank was surreal, the big strong man that I knew as a child was now reduced to a frail old man that couldn’t walk more then five steps without stoping to catch his breath.
Cancer changes everything and I hate it.
When I saw my uncle J, I was taken back by how much he resembled my father.
He gave me the biggest hug and told me over and over again how much he loved me and how I reminded him of my grandma Sue. Saturday was the anniversary of her death.
I also spent a lot of time with my cousins and sister which was nice, my little brother Tim even came up for a night.
