It's torture when you are a mother and you know your child is suffering. No matter how old the child. My own daughter is not allowed to rest properly, sleep properly, as this is when pain is at its most strident and invasive. She has scoliosis and arthritis in her neck. The care she is receiving at the moment is either insufficient or inefficient, or both. Love is helping handle this, so is her courage and her positive attitude. Getting up in the morning demands excruciating efforts. Walking at times demands excruciating efforts.
Her heart has been broken time and again. Now that it is mending, her body is not responding.
Is there a lesson in this?
There are days when I don't want to learn.
