Is It Possible to Forget Your Son Has Cancer?

Featured BlogHer Network Post

[Editor's Note: Do you ever get lost in a moment of family life and forget -- if only for a moment -- the realities of what your family is dealing with at the time? I think we all do. Even Elizabeth at Trenches of Mommyhood. Her son, Jacob, is fighting cancer again, and a recent post of hers speaks to the realities of parenting in the midst of such a fight. -Jenna]

Reality:

Syringe 1 With DropsSometimes when I see the kids running around the yard together, hear laughter bubbling from a room, or find the aftermath of a day spent in the playroom I almost forget for a moment that one of those children is sick.

It's always at the back of your mind. Is he too pale and in need of a transfusion? Is he crying because his sister hurt his feelings or because he is feeling sick? Is it time for his medications? There is always a reminder.

Such as the line of medications which he takes daily.
