Christmas is always a difficult time for me and this one may prove more difficult than most. While most people are bustling around, decorating, shopping, attending Christmas parties and the children are informing Santa of everything on their wish list, many will be spending their holidays in the hospital. Michael will be one of the latter. Medications will adorn an IV tree. Medications that will, hopefully, sustain him, rather than make things worse. It is a delicate and dangerous balancing act and any slip has the potential to cause very undesirable consequences.
The wish list... survival and a new heart.
