I smile to think Mason and Milo reunited again. Mason always wanted a dog to play fetch; and many years ago Milo did just that.
Ally reported to any one that would listen, "Milo died today" It's as natural as the sun rising. It was the news of the day. "Milo is in heaven with Mason."
Normal day to day things are so far from normal. The little sprinkles sometimes catch me so off guard. For instance, Ally coughed all day. "I am not sick mom." By lunch time I had a dose of Mucinex to help with her cough. I was not prepared for the battle. Who would have known? It's so yummy and cherry flavored. By night time, Ally's cough worsened, she screamed in fear at the mention of medicine. Begging and fighting with tears, "NO MEDICINE!" She clamped her mouth tightly shut and spit out my forceful attempt.
Later, a light bulb flickered; why on Earth would Ally take medicine? After all, she witnessed Mason take medicine everyday. It didn't help him. In fact he died. Why take medicine if it makes you die? What is Ally suppose to think? She learned words like chemo, tumor and brain cancer. And hey, medicine is scarier than plants eating zombies. All summer long she had a fear of band-aids too. Mason hated them, it only represented each poke after each blood draw. And Mason would never let me remove the band-aids. It was wrong to even try. Damn cancer. I am SO awake now. Ally still coughing, "I am o.k. mom, there must be something in the air"
