I know that I haven’t written a lot lately, and I will do an update soon about how things are going. But, I’d like to talk about an internet friend of mine who is going through a lot right now; Tersia. Tersia is the mom of Vic, who has a genetic connective tissue disorder called Osteogenesis Imperfecta (read this blog post from Tersia for more info on some of what Vic’s been through). I’ve grown very fond of her and what I know of her family. I feel deeply connected to her somehow and she has given me so much support during times when I’ve truly and desperately needed it. I wish that I could meet her and tell her what a difference she’s made in my life face to face.
It amazes me that despite everything she’s gone through and is going through that she still takes the time to read and comment on my blog, offering her support. Vic has been through more surgeries and more pain in her lifetime than I ever even thought possible. So much so that I can’t even wrap my head around how strong she has to be to have survived it all. They both truly inspire me.
Vic’s health is declining and they wonder whether or not she will bounce back this time. My heart breaks for them and I wish that there was something that I could do to make everything better. I read the posts on Tersia’s blog (all beautifully written) and can feel the unconditional love and devotion that she has for her daughter and how lucky Vic is to have a mom like that by her side through all she’s been through. You can almost feel Vic’s pain through her mom’s words and it’s a powerful thing.
No one deserves to have to suffer so much, not Vic and not her family either. It truly makes me wonder, what is the purpose? What is this test and why did it have to be Vic? And since it is them and they’ve been through so much, please, give them their miracle. Let her get better again, and let her not be in so much pain.
Thank you Tersia, for everything. You have my thoughts, my prayers and my support whenever you may need it. I recommend anyone who reads this to check out her blog, it is wonderful and honest.
