So often, as I go through tests and chemo treatments, I return from the hospital fatigued, nauseous, down for the count.
Many times, people say to me, “You should get some rest.”
And I should. I know that’s an important part of the armor I need to wear in this battle. Rest. Keep myself as physically strong as possible.
But, then I look at Theo, and I think:
How can I waste time sleeping, with the knowledge that these could be my last days, weeks, months spent with him, as his Mommy, here on Planet Earth?
Could you sleep?
