Facing loss

As I sit next to my dad in the doctor’s office waiting area, I distract myself by flipping through photos from yesterday… Alyssa’s eyes catch mine.

Her expression speaks volumes to my heart this week. Behind her, smoke fades life from the beautiful mountains that surround communities near Tahoe where my parents live.

Cancer. Melanoma.  Stage 4.

I watched their faces fall heavy as Dad’s oncologist spilled cruel reality into our lives…..

“I can’t cure this one…”

Immunotherapy.  Pain management.   A new uninvited normal…

Savoring every day and praying for more.
