From the mouths of children

My daughter Jessica - who prefers to be called Jessi - asked me this past weekend if she could write an article for my blog...  A short time later, she came to me with this:

Having a mom with MS is tough.

You never know what is going to happen to them.

For example, mom will say ‘you can have a sleepover – if I’m feeling ok. But next thing you know, mom is saying she can’t breathe that good.

Also it puts you down. I go to middle school, but no matter how much fun I have, I always worry about her.

Plus I can’t imagine having no cure for a horrible disease. It’s not like cancer where it hits everyone the same – MS hits everyone differently.

I just hope all the people with MS will do ok… especially mom.

I'm a lucky mom - to have a daughter so amazing. She turns 11 this week - and I can't believe how quickly time has flown by.  I love you Jessica Lynae. You're a great daughter.
