The bond between a brother and sister can be tough at times. Various interests, ages, and hobbies do not always create a harmonic environment. We work very hard to foster respect, love, and friendship regardless.
Kelsey’s brother worries about her. There is no question about that. Although he has seen her at her worst, he also sees her at her best. They compete, they laugh, and they play together at times in a way that warms my heart.
Every once in a while, I worry that he feels less special or just “less” because he does not have a medical condition that requires the monitoring and lengths we must go to for his sister.
Then sometimes, I really that he does understand and he is more concerned than I realize. He was reading a non fiction text and surprised me with the text from above. He said, “Mom, can you please read this?”
When I read about nanobots that can cure diseases, I stood still and listened. “Mom, do you think this could be the cure for Kelsey that we are looking for?”
“Whatever it takes,” I thought. Maybe someday big brother…
Here’s to hoping, wishing, and praying.
