The last week has been a rough one for Jack. While honesty has always been my motto, I have to admit, it's difficult to share the details of this part of the journey. I can easily talk about what is going on with Jack, but writing it down isn't so easy. You would think that living it every day would make it real enough, but documenting it means I can't take it back, I can't ignore it, I can't see only what I want to believe. Transitioning Jack to hospice came with the realization that Jack is going to die someday. But, someday was just a day out there, somewhere off in the distance - a day I didn't want to focus on.
What I love about Jack's neurologist more than anything is that she doesn't limit her conversation to just medical information. We know each other well enough to talk about God and heaven and how Jack will be okay no matter what. And he will be.
