I totally lost it at her wake, because you are living my absolute nightmare. I have a child with medical issues, and it scares me that even if I take him to the best doctors, give his meds, and take care of him as best I can, he might still be torn away from me. Losing Sharon has motivated me to fight harder for his doctors to treat more proactively and has made me advocate for him harder and without any guilt for being "that mom." I no longer beat myself up for renting because I spend all of my money on keeping him healthy and comfortable. I sincerely want to say thank you for being so open with Sharon's story and your grief, because you and Sharon have motivated me to be a better mother and caregiver.
She is so missed.
