double duty

Today I had wanted to write about family. About volunteering to have myself cut open to help my brother while, at the same time, people in my family have cut me out of their lives, forever so they say.

The disparity is almost too overwhelming to comprehend.

Stress and fear can bring people together. Or tear them apart.

I'm smack in the middle of both situations. And all I can do at the moment is shut down. Not completely - I'm knitting my very first dog sweater and it's taking serious concentration to figure out this pattern. But I can't process any of the rest of it.

And so, I'm sharing my kidney post here.

Hopefully tomorrow I'll be back to working my way through.
