This photo represents a whole lot of emotions, though it appears that anger or annoyance is what is being expressed here.
When this photo was taken, David was in the hospital for 4th time in less than three years. I was scared. I was tired. I was wondering if this was going to be the story of the rest of our lives, knowing the answer to that question was "yes", and not wanting to hear it or face it.
I was/am not ready for where this is headed in our lives.
What you see in that photo is a woman that just wants to fight the world and all the threats it brings with it AND a little girl that just wants to curl up into a ball in a corner somewhere with her teddy and fall fast asleep, dreaming away the reality of 200-mile days and nurses and doctors and beeping machines and bodies that are leaving me, one IV at a time.
