So a little in sight on something that might be to private but whatever. Cory, my husband, and I have really been struggling with our relationship lately. Like really really bad to the point where I almost walked away around Christmas. We have started marriage counseling and it's helping. But today really opened my eyes to him and I am very thankful that he is still in my life. I take him for granted sometimes, especially the last few weeks. It seems like all we do is argue but I'm am madly in love with him. Sometimes I'm just too prideful to say thank you or sorry. So this is both of those. Today I made him drive the 3 hours back to our house to get a lot of stuff that we needed. We had only packed enough crap for 2 days when we were scheduled for the MRI. We were not expecting to be up in Salt Lake for 2 months. On his way out the door I said take one of the kids. So of course he took the easy one of the three kids, Bryker. He left me at my mom's house with Byrklee, a very needy 1 year old, and Brylee, my very clingy needy angel. Oh my word talk about a stressful day for me. No matter what I did there was one daughter that was screaming. Brylee wanted me to hold her or sit by her all day long. Byrklee, newly walking, was getting into all kinds of trouble so I was constantly chasing her and taking things away, causing the screaming. Screaming 24/7! Byrklee when I took things away and Brylee when I left her side! Talk about being in two places at once! This is why I'm so thankful for Cory today. He's been doing Byrklee while I do Brylee and it's been a life saver. I have no idea what I'd be doing right now if he wasn't here. I have also decided that him getting laid off in November has been a very odd blessing. It has been such a blessing that he can be here with me and helping and that he doesn't have to miss out on memories with Brylee. I desperately need this kind of support right now. Thanks Babe! Love you!
Brylee Olson was diagnosed with a DIPG, an inoperable brain tumor (infiltrating brain stem glioma) on Wednesday, March 6, 2013. This is a blog for her and her fight to be in the 5% who survive 3-4 years. Or the rare chance of complete survival.
