Some are closer to the fire than others.


Bambi is cooking.

The three baby crows are feeding themselves and playing in the water.

Dark clouds have gathered in the Seattle skies.

It is all good In our world.  Not so much in Jai's world.  Her daughter is battling cancer for the second time in her young (just turned 3) life.  She did started with something bad AML and then relapsed and cancer went everywhere but she was able to have a bone marrow transplant. 

They did a bone marrow aspiration today.  I am sure as I am writing this there is some sort of news.   News Jai will share with loving grace and bravery tomorrow.  I will post it here as soon as I know anything. 

As cancer Mom's we all see the others step closer to the fire, some touch the flames and run, some stand strong and wait, some are consumed, some are purified, some are destroyed.  We don't usually spend lots of time in the "hot zone" but we know the pain and fear that goes with that journey.

We all wait with Jai and Alistaire and Sten and Solve...  We wait, we offer prayers and  lite candles.  The light of the fire is warming and soothing to some extent, until you get too close.
