"You were sick, but now you're well again, and there's work to do."
― Kurt Vonnegut, Timequake
First week post surgery and the healing has well and truly begun. Bruises are fading, all seven incisions have knit back together and my dressings have been removed.
I cried for most of Wednesday...I dropped the boys to school, came straight home, curled up in my bed and cried until I fell asleep and that's where I stayed until it was time to do the school run again. There is no rhyme or reason when it comes to cancer. It steals what it wants, when it wants. The ultimate thief with no remorse. I will never get used to the loss of the girls in my support group, no matter how many times it happens, no matter how much it's anticipated.
Wednesday reminded me to continue to be grateful for my remission and revel in the little things like watching Harry making a birthday card and Jack discovering the world of Lego.
Sleep well sweet Amelia. You were, and always will be, greatly loved.
