Molly is currently going through chemo and she has had most of her frontal lobe removed due to a tumor. Instead of feeling sorry for herself, though at times I'm sure she does, she said she was looking over her past years of her life and (other than changing her new hardwood floors that she hates) she wouldn't change a thing. I thought about that and came up with many things I would change...none of them even coming close to having half my brain removed and going through chemo while having the toilet be my best friend as I puke my guts out. She also said that it was hard for her to look at her friends and see what they were doing with their lives and knowing that she could have been where they are but because of her tumor she isn't. She had a good job and a lot of money. Now she is struggling financially because she can't work and her life didn't turn out quite the way she planned...still she wouldn't change anything.
What am I complaining about?
I think this is a great group for Beau. The people are all so nice and Beau is able to talk about his experiences with people who know what he is going through. They give advice and encouragement. I did sit and cry for parts of it, which I knew I would do, but overall it was a wonderful experience and I can't wait to go back.
Beau and Melissa after the support group...It was awesome to share this experience with Beau, Melissa, and Romi. They are three of the most amazing people I know...and I'm not just saying that. Beau is a hilarious and strong warrior, Melissa is an angel who is literally saving my brothers life and Romi is the one who keeps us all together. Without her I wouldn't know what to do. I look to her for all the answers, and believe it or not, she always has them...we'd all be lost without her. I am so lucky to have these three in my life.
