Our Optimism Was So Bloody High

I can’t believe it’s been three years since we were in Germany. Fighting for life.

Looking back our optimism was unrealistic. Lou was so-so sick and her chances of survival must have been near zero.

But they were “near zero”, they weren’t zero.

I’m proud that WE all hung onto that fraction of a percent and turned over every stone. WE truly thought we could win.

We weren’t successful but we did try try our best. What else can you do?

HER VILLAGE rallied, they paid for her treatment, they paid for our travel and paid for our stay in Germany. Most importantly her village gave her every opportunity to live.

That is special.
