Being the daughter


Tomorrow I get to be the daughter. 

Actually I guess I’ve always been the daughter, but this is in a different way. Tomorrow I’m taking my mom to a very important day of testing and gathering information relating to her current health issues. Yes, I’m taking time off work; I’m helping drive; I’ve made sure dad is going to be an active part in the day; I’ve made sure they are bringing all their information with them.
