BWW Blog: Natalie Toro - Going Out on a Limb
I am not one to complain much, but I am going through a very different experience than my normal routine. My eyes have opened up so much since this whole thing started. I am learning that expectations will give you disappointment. It's making me deal with the world of Doctors, Nurses, hospitals and disease on a daily basis. Funny how, when they are exposed to my world of entertainment, it's their weekend, their time for escape and their time to laugh. It's a "feel good" feeling.
So for me, the most important lesson is that no matter what, it's my job to keep my mother in the best spirits I know how, no matter who gets in the way. We have a ways to go with her treatments and if this is what I have to expect every time we enter the hospital, then we shall go in doing a tap dance.

For everyone out there who is taking care of a parent or loved one, no matter what your profession, we are all in this together!
