Friday was when it happened. Low white blood cells, he started a fever.
Today, Sunday, yes. That is the day today.
He has viral menengitis.
He's ... no words to describe. They are giving him support (drugs), helping it to leave his body.
It could take 24 hours.
It could take a week.
I would say I am scared, only, I .... I don't know what I feel.
I sleep here with him tonight. The kids scattered at friend's houses.
Family reinforcements arrive tomorrow.
I read to him.
I sang to him.
I held his hand.
Now I will sleep for him.
Hoping that when I wake up, I will find it was some kind of really mean joke he'd played on me.
Better that than this reality.
