Initially I thought "Why me; why Alex; what did we do to deserve this?"
I eventually moved on, to thinking God was trying to teach me a lesson~ about patience (it's a lesson I'm still working on).
Finally, I concluded, God knew I could do this. He trusted me to take care of Alex. He trusted me to fight and find answers. He knew I had the strength even when I didn't know I had it.
I've come to believe that this is what I am meant to do. Not only am I here as Alex's guardian, I'm also here as an advocate/supporter to other Cushing's patients as well. I think it's my calling.
