Deja Vu? Nah

Sitting in this hospital with pneumonia, thinking about how my father died on this same day 13yrs ago. My father and I share many of the same traits, physical features, but also the same underlying disease. Sarcoidosis. I was diagnosed 5yrs ago. It has ravished my lungs and also affected other organs. Honestly, all I think about is my young daughter. I don’t want her to see me this way. All these tubes, monitors, and breathing equipment. I know firsthand how it can effect a child. My father passed at the age of 42 and I was 22 at the time. I watched h fight for yrs though. I’m 35 now and my daughter is only 6. Things have been real rough lately, but I know my father bred me to be stronger than him physically and mentally. He trained me to endure pain. So I embrace the challenge. I’m here for the fight. My daughter leaves me no choice. #Amylaworld
