I couldn't understand why she all of the sudden, out of the blue, said this to me. I figured it was because Homecoming is coming up and she wanted me to buy her more stuff.
Oh, and I'll tell you the Homecoming story another time, which includes us now having two hamsters. What these girls are expecting from these boys...
Anyway, I asked her where this was coming from and she said that she was talking to a friend who has a parent, who is struggling so much. And Millie was having a moment of gratitude about my recovery and shared it with me.
I am so proud of her too. I'm glad that other kids who are touched by this disease can go to her, and she will talk to them. I hope that by sharing our story, she can give hope and support where she can. She is a warrior. We are proof that it gets better.
