Java and Brady


At 14 I know Java’s days are limited. Each day she sleeps a little longer, her legs shake a little more each time she gets up. All the signs of her ending are there, they small and insignificant but I know one day soon they won’t be.

I watch how Brady lays next to her,
how he kisses her, looks for her when she is in another room. I wonder who will be more devastated when she passes away Brady or me?

  1. I suspect it is a tie — because while you are sad for Brady, I’m sure he is equally sad for you. Just be there for each other and you will both heal in time.
