The Waiting Game -by Joe
In the photo is "Blu", an amazing service dog, patiently resting on my shoe at Seattle Cancer Care Alliance's 5th floor chemotherapy lobby while his loving owner, Sheryle, visited with Heidi during her chemotherapy.
Heidi and I are slowly learning to wait more like Blu does. He is patient, loyal and never gives up no matter how long he has to wait. And Blu's ability to patiently, obediently wait required training. It's the same for us.
Yesterday and today are good examples. Heidi's initial labs look bad and we have to wait for the final results. I started having symptoms again a couple days ago and am getting tests run on me to find out why. Hopefully, both are false alarms but we have to wait to find out. And maybe, just maybe, we are getting a little better each time..
As always, thanks for your support! - Joe
