Thanks, everyone, for your kind words. They mean a lot! Today I was listening to an NPR story about palliative care, and the physician interviewed for the story was so kind, so understanding, and so respectful about the needs of the patient at the end of life -- somehow, his compassion brought my own grief just flooding back. Nevertheless, somehow, it was a good thing. I'm grateful for empathy. That's really what makes it possible to move forward.
