One of Kris' new friends, Michelle Riddle took some pictures of G yesterday and this one really struck a note with me. Her expression is one of peace and focus. The softness of the light adds to her innocence in the frame yet the scars on her chest and arms tell a story of what she has been through and what remains to be done.
Kris and I were discussing some of the changes we have seen in G since this started. I asked her if she thought that G has gotten sweeter since this began and we agreed that she has. I'm not sure what the reasons are but I am watching her being more gentle with her sister, more polite to us(unless we are giving her a shot) and generally a sweeter kid. I am turning a corner on this thing crushing me every time I think of what my innocent little angel is going through and starting to accept her as a fighter and a survivor instead of a victim of this terrible disease.
