Madeline had to get out of bed
slowly to avoid any sign
of dizziness. She also wanted to rid her mouth of that horrible
metallic taste. Two large dogs seemed to
be in agreement for slowing her down. They helped support the
reality of the situation appearing in
front of Madeline in a flash .
It was their job to keep
her from rising too quickly.
Was it possible tomorrow could be a better day? She smiled artificially at her sweet pups
and the way they protested her movements. Madeline's heart broke as her head began to sway. She felt she was riding sea waves once more.
Would her doctors always be stumped by her undiagnosed illness? Now she simply faced another day of labor/labour as her dear support friends monitored her every step out of the room and into another tedious day.
