passage of time

I happen to still be on the member mailing of my family’s church. The mother of one of our own is in the hospital.

This morning I received an email that she was seriously ill.

A few hours ago, another email arrived; they’ve removed all ventilators and tubes. Just waiting now.

Statistically speaking, there are probably many people dying right this moment. But there’s knowing that, and then there’s knowing it.

Peace to them; the waiting is harder than the knowing, but often not as painful as the aftermath.
