we haven’t even left for the CAT scan, hard to breathe.
i’m playing it strong for my honey, he would do it for me naturally i just need to work at it a little harder but i know deep inside I can do it. I am doing it and have been for the last what seems like forever.
trying not to play the what if game, but once in a while it sneaks into the cracks like a deadly snake, from behind with its rapid, insidious long tongue. hiss, hiss.
this is what a grown-up is, i’m sorry baby, there is nothing for you to do until we know something and even then, your life stays the same.
i’ve been trying to meditate, deep breathing, slowly in and out, but as the hands on the clock keep ticking, I seem to swallow more, it takes more effort to remember how. did you think I would disturb the test for an unknown? never. ever.
life is certainly not always about pudding and pastries, if only, right?
in two minutes, we have to leave, oh that’s now.
of course we’re early but good luck! they take him right away, in less than ten minutes, he’s back, bad news: no results for 24 hours.
we sit again, waiting, waiting. until tomorrow. trying to think that waiting is often better than knowing.
tomorrow comes, not that but this…
see a cardiologist, it could be this or that but not the other.
so we go on, we have no choice, once again. to do what we have to do.
my stomach is clenched, it hurts so much, tension begets tension.
all i want is for all to be okay and then we can breathe normally soon.
or can we?
