Love to my daughter

Love to my daughter

My baby is bringing her stuff down to her car again. I have both dogs on me staring at the door I might be just as sad as them, not because she’s leaving, because she’s still having a tough time with the roommates.

A parent first

A parent first

ive told the story in past posts about my parents and the pain my MS has caused them. To watch your child hurt and suffer when you stand by helpless is the worst feeling for a parent. I know my disease has repeatedly broken my parents (all 4 of them) hearts at various times through the years. I’ve had challenges with my daughter too. She was born with a progressive hearing loss. It is called EVAS, enlarged vestibular aqueduct syndrome. Her…
