If I Can't Walk [MOMLIFE]

My mom was diagnosed this week with a hereditary disease that has affected her feet in particular, causing her significant instability and the need for a walker. Since her diagnosis, the more I think about it and look back retrospectively, the more I'm convinced I have it.

If I do indeed carry the gene, it'll hopefully be a number of years away before my lifestyle will be affected, as the progression of the disease is slow.

With this on my mind and as I think about the future, I had this convo with Nui Nui tonight:

Me: Nui Nui?
Nui Nui: What, mama?
Me: Are you going to take care of me when I get old?
Nui Nui: Yes.
Me: What if I can't walk?
Nui Nui: Then l'll hold your hand.

My kid. Man, did I hit the jackpot! xo
