Coping With Illness


my boyfriend's father, marty has been in the hospital all week with liver failure and other complications associated with his bad liver and it has been a very stressful week for friends and family.  now that i'm back to work for a few days it seems surreal and strange to have to be here...  i don't like that i feel pressure to be somewhere i do not want to be... i have to continue keeping a brave face and working to bring an income in...  so i'm here in my safe little bubble working today and tomorrow and will go back down to vancouver again on wednesday to support justin and his/my family...  we have to take it one moment and then one day at a time... 

xmas is marty's favorite time of year... he's like a little kid who can't wait to see his boys and to have family all around him... he decorates the tree, wraps the presents, tells the stories, shows the tricks and gives the kitty-treats to "Mr. Kitty"... he's surrounded by people who love him and who have been touched by him in some way... they either have worked for him or just plain love him... we all love him and hope that he finds a way through this so that we can keep sharing his love of life and this holiday season...  may he know no pain, fear or sorrow...  i love you marty...
