Worse news

Me: Nell, tell me. What’s wrong?

Nell: Charlie’s results came back. It’s bad news.

Me: Oh no.

Nell: He is dying. My lovely Charlie.

Me: No, please don’t let that be true.

Nell: He might make it to Christmas but we have to expect to lose him way before then.

Me: I don’t know what to say. I have no words.

Nell: There is nothing we can do. As Charlie said himself it is all about acceptance.

Me: Life can be so cruel.

Nell: So, we have to make the time he has left a special time. Filled with love and laughter. He doesn’t want doom and gloom. Life must go on.

Me: Yes.

Nell: He says it means a lot to him to know he is loved.

Me: He is greatly loved by us all. Do the others know?

Nell: Not yet. Charlie and I are going to tell them together at Morning Thoughts.

Me: I can’t bear it, Nell. This is so sad.

Nell: Yes, it is. But I am going to treasure the time I have left with him and be thankful that he came into my life. You should do the same.

Me: I am so very sad.

Nell: I never knew there was a place beyond sad, but I do now.

Me: I am so sorry.
