Family...

Michael's family is coming over this morning....this is a difficult thing as he has kept them in the dark about how sick he is...How can that be?....In 2008 when he first was in ICU they knew he was sick (he has 2 sisters one is 14 years older than him the other is 12 years older)  Anyhow, once he started chemo and went into partial remission that is the last thing that he told them...partial remission...doing good he would say when he talked to them on the phone each week....things are great he would say....over the past 2 years he has made excuses not to get together when asked to go out to dinner....So, here we are...toward the end and they are coming over this morning....I tried to gently tell them on the phone when I made these arrangements that he was not doing good and had not been doing good for a while now, but it was his wish not to worry them....and I respected that wish.  I went and bought two heart necklaces yesterday that he will give them today as a symbol that he will always be with them....But, this will be a difficult morning for all of us...
BE WELL...

I carried you both in my heart at church this morning. offered up the 23rd psalm for you. May you find peace in your love for each other. These final hours are bittersweet. A gift, really, to savor. I've spent the morning remembering my time with Dad. Holding you close.
