Vigil

Laura has not woken up since this morning. She is heavily sedated now and breathing lightly.  Her brother Barry, her former partner Kerry and I are here with her this evening.  An hour ago, the very reverend Rebecca, who married us popped in to do a blessing. Laura is surrounded by love both present and virtual and the incredibly kind and big hearted nurses and doctors at Memorial Sloan Kettering have created a cocoon of warmth, support and peace around us.  

I wanted to light some candles for our vigil but fortunately Rebecca pointed out that it says in bold letters on the door to Laura’s room ‘No Smoking.  Oxygen.’  The last thing we need  now is to blow up the hospital.
