Write about someone you care for
It is a tough thing for a man with a heart full of people to choose one and write about them but if there is one person recently who has been in my thoughts and prayers a lot it is my young sister who has had cancer and recently recovered.
She was diagnosed with cancer about a year ago. It was throat cancer.
She is very young. No one knows what caused such cancer for certain but if you’re a smoker I would quit.
When my sister was in the hospital I gave her a foot rub and stayed by her side with my mother. We don’t hang out a lot as our personalities conflict but we love each other dearly. We are able to go long periods without speaking to each other and then act as if it were but a few days. I would say that it is more than an act. It is genuine love. The same love I have for my brother which tends to be fatherly as the eldest I also too have for my sister.
When I went to the hospital she had staples in her neck all around like a spiral staircase, 360 degrees, from the nape of her neck just under her ear to the other side right above her collar bone.
Twice she almost died undergoing surgery as her body rejected the stitches. She has some weird gene the doctors said that makes this a very complicated case, both in terms of how the cancer appeared, and in terms of how she rejects surgery.
The next day her face swelled like balloon. It was painful to see someone you love with a face swollen like they just drowned and were pulled out of a river while they are still alive, eyes moving side to side, looking at you to see how you are looking at them.
I hope no one ever has to go through that and I don’t mean what I saw but what my sister had to do. She is my hero today and she has quite recovered. My heart bleeds for the young lion. I hope and pray she finds a man to marry her for her heart aches for true love.
I am always there for her and always will be. We had many fights growing up and were never too close and somewhat polar opposites in nature but in truth we always had each others back.
And that is all I have to say about that for now.
