What Counts...

Seven pills every morning,
Not including pain control
Four more pills to take at night,
Every week: three injections,
And two patches. Therapy,
Doctor visits, tests and labs.

Twenty-four hours, seven days,
A man who loves me, four kids
Call me "Mom". Two turtles, fish,
And my little dog, Whiskey.
If you ask, "Is it all worth it?"
I answer in one heartbeat.
