- After giving a detailed history to a med student, including that Meg has highly diminished gross motor function and no fine motor function, the med student asked: "So she can't walk?"
- Ending a phone conversation with my sis, I said, "I have to go, I'm meeting with a social worker." She asked, "Which one?" I replied, "Does it matter? Meg has more social workers than a crack 'ho baby mama!"
- When trying to explain to Maddy and Ethan that Meg didn't "catch" cancer, the only analogy I could come up with was that certain Clone Trooper cells in her brain received "Order 66" and went to the "Dark Side." They understood my pitch. Score one for Mom! (All you Star Wars fans know what I'm talking about!)
I'll take these moments of absurdity and dark humor over the waves of anxiety and fear I'm stifling. As Monday bears down on us, I know we are preparing for another difficult leg in our journey. I just wish we had time to catch our breaths.
