I love you :)

I’m sitting in the Cedars waiting room at Mark Taper Imaging, waiting to do *another* neck ultrasound (I’ve been putting off the inevitable…I know I’m going to need that surgery…I don’t need this ultrasound to tell me, I can still feel swelling in my mouth–it’s just not going away 😦

And as I sit here listening to the chatter of the crowded waiting room, feeling their inherent anxieties that come along with being ill,

I just had this overwhelming feeling of love and gratitude, for everything…I hope I never seem trite or ungrateful–I walk the grounds–I breathe the air–because of all the sacrifices you’ve made. Your generous spirit has touched many lives–you’ve even sacrificed some of your career for people you love–but I am only here because of you…even though I sit alone in this room (most people have a friend or spouse), I don’t feel alone–

Thank you.

I love you very much 🙂

Some kind of rare immune deficiency, yet to be determined. A lifetime of infections without an elevated white cell blood or fever. Very grateful to be alive, very thankful for the friends who’ve supported me and for access to literally millions of dollars worth of medical care. I’m not the bubble child, I’m somewhere in between.
