As I listened to a friend talk about her brother's illness and then his passing, I was impressed with how much she remembered years later. She knew what month this happened and then that and finally, the end.
I thought back over the last year of Steven's terminal cancer and felt I didn't know enough of the months and dates. Gosh, it's only been 3 months. How could I have forgotten? Does this mean I don't care or maybe my brain is mush?
So I got the calendar and the folder labeled Steven Medical and started a timeline. But, then it became too much and I had to stop. It all ends the same way no matter what month he had chemo, radiation or contracted pneumonia. It all ends the same way.
