Our daughter and her husband are moving back to the area from out of state so we'll have all our children close by again which makes this mom's heart sing. I've really missed having her around for all the family festivities although she tried to make it home as much as possible. My daughter is fearless facing whatever life throws at her with grace and determination so it came as a shock to me that the almost 4 years she's been away has been as hard on her as it has been on me. When she gave notice at the law firm she's currently working for it surprised even her how many tears sprung up when she expressed some deep-seated fears she's been carrying around about my precarious health situation. It dawned on me that because she's not around me on a day to day basis, she especially notices me getting progressively worse and that scares her to death. I can only imagine the fear and helplessness a close family member must feel when they see their loved one struggling knowing there's nothing they can do about it. I can deal with this disease but it really makes me angry to see my kids so frightened of what MS will do next but this awful disease will never take away the close family bond we share and for that I am eternally grateful
