"So these are your treatment options..." I choke back a sob and let my voice trail off. How do I present a 30 year old mother of 5 with the fact that we've already done all we can do? "...I will support you, whatever you choose." I turn so she doesn't see me blink back the tears."For me, I would like to choose life." The words are steady, certain. "My children are still so young. I would like to live."I choke with all the times I have taken this breath in my lungs for granted. The tears burn hot … [Read more...]

I watch the tears roll down her cheeks and am devastated for her. I know she must be crying because of the pain of her burns or because of the pain in her heart at the thought of her husband pushing her into the fire. I place my hand on her shoulder and my eyes beckon her to share.“My stomach is hurting,” she says, and that’s not what I was expecting, “This is the first time I have eaten this week.”It’s Thursday.I pray because I don’t know what else to do.  Sure, I can feed this woman lunch … [Read more...]
