Working Toward Cure
Each pill and each bag of toxic cancer killer gets us closer to a healthy child. Friday, Isa sat on her papa’s lap watching a cartoon while the LMX took effect. During that interval, the nurses started her infusion of Vincristin. Later, she would lean over a towel, cris-cross applesauce, while they puncture her lower back between the vertebra. The LMX cream is to numb the area before they insert any needles. As parents we have honored Isa by allowing whomever she wants with her to go. This is how Papa ended up in the hospital, and how he sat with her during her first out-patient. Yes, I even asked her several times, just to be sure.
Each time we go for treatments, I am so grateful to all the children, rats, monkeys, and other parents who have gone before. Without the children who have died, my child wouldn’t have the opportunity to live. Without animal testing carcinogens may have never been found. Yes, I realize the crassness of these statements, and any PETA friends I have, I do apologize for any offense. At this point in time, I choose to believe that the souls who have already crossed over from cancer volunteered their lives to work toward a cure.
