Marilyn’s Room


December 11th, 2008

Marilyn got a hospital bed for her back, which had been really acting up before her diagnosis with lymphoma. She had been using the oxygen concentrator for some time and I’d just had cable service installed in her room. Looks just like a hospital room.

I’ve said how much -I- didn’t like being in the hospital, but the truth is, for months, she *lived* in one. And never complained.

You can see Kinky, her favorite of our two cats, ‘on guard’.

The Diagnosis

My beloved has been diagnosed with untreatable cancer. She has a very short time to live.

I’m going to share this with the world so that others in the same situation will know they are not alone and also to give her a chance to say some things to the universe that need saying.

It won’t be pretty and the heroine definitely dies at the end.

Come along with us, share your thoughts as we share this final journey.
