My sweet son Dimitri
(Mission Hills, CA)
The dragon was asking for it
Today is another dreaded anniversary....they come the 9th of every month. It's been 7 months today since my beautiful son Dimitri died of acute myeloid leukemia. For me it will be another day of work. I'll take care of my patients and listen to them as they describe their pain. They will not know that while I'm sitting there listening to them, I will also be feeling my own pain. A pain that is so raw and brutal that it will never resolve.
I wish things could have been different. I wish that my sweet Dimitri could have survived this horrible disease and gone on to marry his beautiful Katrina and had lots of grandchildren for me.
I'll never understand this. Until the day I die, I'll never understand why this happened.
I love you Meems!
