One Single Impression: Never Ending

dread telephone call
son is in hospital, come
never ending fear

Peggy, my friend and colleague is out the rest of the week.  It began with a phone call Tuesday.  Her youngest son  is in the hospital with fever and low white blood counts. 

Trouble enough, child in hospital. But this young man has Fanconi Anemia.  Tomorrow is the fifth anniversary of his oldest brother’s passing from the disease.

Tests are being run, fever has broken.  Hopefully this is a mere blip on the radar.  Send prayers her way and her son’s way.

    I will do so; I’m glad you are there for her. The verse is definitely right on with a mother’s fear.

    I am so sorry about this struggle and hope the family will be fine. Thanks for sharing this poem with OSI. What pain.

    I can’t even imagine that kind of fear. Many prayers are being sent your way. I hope things are going much better for him and the family.
