  2. I am so very sorry. I am crying and my heart is breaking for you. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. xoxo

  3. Impossible as it may be to pinpoint what the worst of grief-living is

    for me, the inability to wrap words around it, explain it, encompass it

    is suffocating.

    "Why aren't you more specific?" they say. "Why don't you give more details?"

    You don't have to imagine why. You know.


    I don't claim to capture what swallowing Everest or
    scaling the Devil's back
    or hemming the Holocaust might be

    but there are places

    Your writings about your son, your efforts to share him
    in spite of the suffocation

    are just as beautiful as the dried tears on your faces.

    You can leave them here, always.

  5. Hey, Wyatt. I don't know if you remember me, but I took care of you the first few months I was a doctor. I always think of you whenever I go into 3F or whenver I run into Jen Fennstermacher. You and your family have taught me courage, hope, and patience. I have become a better physician because of you. And maybe, through you and your family, I will be better able to help other sick kids in the future.

    So thank you. Thank you for sharing a piece of you with us. Thank you for letting us be a part of your amazing life. Thank you for reminding us what it means to live. Thank you for making me want to be a better father, a better doctor, a better person.
