the truest stars we know

 ~ ~ ~

I am so thankful for a visit from my sister. 

She is one of the bravest people I know. She was diagnosed with colon cancer in 2009 and after 7 years of being "cancer free" it came back in her sacrum bone. Since then she has been through more chemo, more radiation and more tests and scans than one could count. She was told that it was not a matter of if it will come back it is a matter of when. And it has come back...a number of times. Each time she has a treatment that takes a permanent toll on her body and her spirit. She has drop foot and cannot walk without a brace or a cane/walker, she is in constant pain, and all this time she continues to go to one doctor appointment after another. The latest is a fracture in her hip because her bones are weak due to the radiation. 

I cherish the times we get to spend together.
