He forgot his meds…


Marty forgot his meds this morning and didn’t realize it until it was time to take his evening pills.  He was thrilled that he didn’t even miss them.

This is HUGE!

Personally, I wanted to get on the phone and call everyone I know, but most people wouldn’t understand what a big deal this is. They don’t realize the loss and grief we have endured, the thousands of pills Marty has swallowed, the hundreds of needle sticks he has faced, the dozens of doctor appointments he has had, the sleepless nights, the pharmacy trips, the ER visits, the painful morning stiffness…I could go on, but you either know what I’m talking about or you don’t.

I know it’s too soon to think that he’s anywhere close to remission, even medicated. But even one day without pain and without medicine is a major milestone. I couldn’t be more thrilled.

I’m going to go have some celebratory ice cream. With chocolate sauce for good measure.  Care to join me?
