Finding the Words

My best friend's ten-year-old son is in hospice at the hospital; he is dying.

His brain cancer has morphed over the past several weeks from stage 3 to stage 4.  The progression of MRI's from May to June to last week show that the tumors are, in my friend's words, "consuming his brain."

She said she had never seen pure evil until she saw those MRI's.

There won't be any trip to Legoland.  In the end, there just wasn't enough time.

I'm going to stay with her again, to help as much as I can. 

I have to uncover the simple words in my heart and help them find their way into the world.
