Room 306

A Very Personal Post – Room 306

October is breast cancer awareness month.  Throughout the coming weeks there will be various media coverage about the importance of early detection and the quest to find a cure for breast cancer.  There will be pink ribbons, fundraisers and walks.  Women celebrating their victory in the battle, women looking for solidarity that are fighting this battle, and finally there will be friends and family mourning the loss of their loved ones in this battle.

October is also the month that my Mom is losing ground in her battle against breast cancer.

As I look outside I notice the leaves changing, the days growing shorter, and temperature cooler; all indications of the season’s change, and somehow indicative of the changes in my Mom’s health. Conversations that would normally be about upcoming holidays and events, have now switched to comfort and care schedules.

Each day is still a battle, however, we measure victories differently now.
