Sometimes, You Do What's Wrong

Every once in a while, you have to break the rules.

Every once in a while, it's obvious what you have to do.

Every once in a while, you just have to break down ... and do what you know is wrong. That's what Laurie did yesterday:

I've hit a new low in Leroy's struggle with cancer.

I ate a donut.

I know that sounds funny, but I'm not a donut person. The donut screams, "This fight has taken a turn in the road."

It's the cancer that is pushing back now. If it's not the disease itself, it's the effects of the disease that are causing pain and discomfort.

I used to be able to ease that pain ... but not now.

So I guess we've been through the "easy" part of this experience ... it's going to get hard from here on out.

All you donut makers out there, you've been warned.
