Living in Denial

I can share this as a parent (at least I think I can).

I would go through walls for my kids.  Nothing would stop me if there was something I thought I could do for them.  Now my kids are on the young side–but I don’t think I am alone in that.

On the extreme other end, is my wife’s mother.  Now granted its not a 1:1 comparison, two sub-teens versus a child with two kids of her own–but still…

The wife is in end-stage with a brain tumor and “living” in hospice care.  What is her mother doing? Going to retreat to upstate NY for the rest of the summer without a car.  Easily a four hour drive from where her daughter is on her death bed.

I know I couldn’t do it.
