The long goodbye [Jun. 7th, 2014|04:53 pm]
We wait, as Rebecca lies still. Her chest rises and falls, her strong heart still beats. This body is ready to run and play. This body is growing and thriving.

The tumors in her brain have stolen away consciousness. Soon they will steal away breath and heartbeat.

Rebecca turned 6 today. She may have a tomorrow, but it won't be one she sees or feels. She may have two tomorrows as we all sit vigil, watch her chest rise and fall.

She will not have any tomorrows where she smirks at silly jokes, runs after her brother, or even cuddles her mom and dad. All those tomorrows are gone.

Words are inadequate. I'm so very sorry.

G, my heart is with you and Ferrett and Eric and Kat and the kids. I wish it could be more than my heart, especially in the coming weeks.

When things are needed, and I can be of service, please know I am here.

If there's a silver lining, it's that the worrying and wondering is past. Blessings to you and Ferrett.

She impacted the world so positively in less than 6 years more than most people do in lifetimes 10x longer. Much love and prayers.
