Valentine's Day is the day we remember the ones we love. I am one of the lucky people in the world because I am a twin. I love my family but my twin, well, my twin is extra special. My twin is my hero. She was a marathon runner, a soft ball pitcher and could throw a foot ball further and with more spiral than any boy I've known. She is smarter than me by miles, has musical talent and has a prestigious job. My twin also has Lupus, and broke her back twice.
She can't run anymore. My twin just had major back surgery so that she can continue to have the ability to walk. Right now she is 3000 miles away from me in an ICU unit. She has a blood clot in her lung. The last few days I have thought of nothing else but my twin. The horror that I might lose her. It has also made me think about how lucky we are, those of us that are not sick and can move. You don't know what you have until you lose it. So for those of you that can, MOVE! You are so blessed that you can. Anyway, this is for you Monkey, Happy Valentine's Day. I love you so much!
