I held her in my arms and cried as her breathing stopped and the shine went from her eyes. I had tried for weeks to help her get better, to save her life as she had saved mine.
Cricket came to me when I was in to my fifth month of surgeries and having pain and chemo. This little girl went to hospital and doctor appointments and made me get up to face life ever day. Once when I had passed out from pain and fallen, she pressed my med alert button to get help. Another time I was just home from chemo and she insisted I not go in house..... I did anyway to find and got smoke inhalation, the furnace was on fire.
I so miss this little girl. I was unable to save her life, but I am here today because she saved mine.
