Times Three No. 10
Our dear Sheldon needs your love and prayers.
Yesterday morning Sheldon’s breathing was getting labored.
In the afternoon a palliative doctor came and talked to Sheldon and told him they would be moving him to the palliative ward. Sheldon said “Oh, death row.” She said ‘No Sheldon, just that they will be able to respond to your needs faster and you will be more comfortable.’
She asked Sheldon how he felt about dying and he said that he was okay with it. He said “I am fine with it, but my family isn’t.”
There are things that we don’t want to happen but have to accept, things we don’t want to know but have to learn, and people we can’t live without but have to let go.
