Happy Father's Day!

A month had gone by, Harlow was getting weaker by the day and the pain that she has throughout her body had been getting worse. Sadie had taken Harlow to her doctors appointment since Antonio was to be due in court all morning.

After Harlow's screening and her exams the doctor prescribed her some more medication and some stronger medication for the pain. Dr. Walters explained to Harlow as well as Sadie, that her bones are extremely frail right now and to try to avoid any activities that could fracture her bones.

Sadie wrote everything down in a notebook while the doctor was explaining where Harlow is at with her cancer, and what she should be doing at this point. She knew Antonio would be asking questions about it when he got home later, and figured this was the best way to let him so she wouldn't forget any of the information that the doctor explained to them.

The doctor had also printed off paperwork with his findings and for what she is suppose to be doing at home. He also provided them with names and phone numbers for hospice care if they were to go and choose that route.

"Harlow at the stage where you're at, it would be in your best interest to enter hospice. All they will do is help for you to stay comfortable, they will also help you with your medical care and pain management.... now I'm not saying that you have to do that, it's just something to think about." Dr. Walters explained to her.

"Thank you, I'll have to talk about it with Antonio." She sighed, she didn't want to hear that just yet, she shook his hand and looked over at her girls who were both sitting next to Sadie.

Harlow sighed as she looked at Sadie "I'm ready to go home."

When they got home Harlow went straight upstairs and into her room slamming the door. She didn't want her girls to see her cry, she had been holding it in from the doctors office all the way home and couldn't hold back anymore. She dropped down on the bed laying down on her stomach and let it all out. "Why me?" She kept asking over and over, while punching her fists down on the bed.

After she calmed herself down, she stood up and walked over to the bottom drawer of her dresser and grabbed a journal that she had been hiding, she climbed back into bed and started writing in it.

Sadie had gone upstairs to check on Harlow, she knocked on the door and slightly opened the door peaking her head in, Harlow grabbed a pillow putting it over her journal, not wanting her to see it.

"I'm sorry to bother you, but I was wondering if there is anything that I can get for you?"

"No thanks, I'm OK for now."

"OK, let me know if you need anything." She says before shutting the door, she then heard Harlow call out for her and re-opened the door.

"Did you need something?" Sadie asked her as she stood in the doorway holding onto the door handle.

"I have a question to ask you." She says patting the bed for her to sit down.

Sadie got a little nervous, she wasn't sure what she was going to ask, she didn't think Harlow liked her that much. She walked over and sat down on the bed next to her and as she looked at her she could see that she had ben crying. Harlow looked back at her nodding her head.

"What do you think of my girls?"

Sadie looked at her surprised and confused by that question "What do I think of them?"

"Yes, I'm curious as to how you feel about them."

"Well... I think they are great kids, they are beautiful and very smart for their age. I love them as if they were my own. Why do you ask?"
