14. Please Tell Me Today Didn't Happen.

Please tell me today didn't happen. Please tell me I didn't have a conversation with my family about what we are going to do for Takheo's services. This all happened so fast. Too fast. All I want is more time with my baby brother. I am so scared now. I'm left with nothing except for waiting for my brother to go. He spent all of today in his bed, sleeping, and crying out in pain. Morphine, Morphine, and more Morphine. We couldn't get him out of bed so we sat by him, rubbed him, and tried to comfort him. Nothing was working and we couldn't talk him into going outside, playing with April and me or anything. Takheo is not getting comfortable as his pain is not getting better. So we had a nurse come hook him up to drip with some stronger pain medication. I spent hours trying to get Tak comfortable. It's not working. Nothing is working. Momma has been rubbing his legs and arms for an hour, and I've been listening to his shallow breaths, watching him twitch and whimper in his sleep. I've been talking to him all night, telling him I'm not going anywhere and neither is he. He is hurting so badly and all I can do is hold his hand and rub his little body. I'm trying to be strong for the sake of my tiny Tak. I've done an o.k. job being strong for him but tonight, I lost it in front of him. I was whispering to him about how he cannot leave me yet. How we had to fight and still be strong. The tears were pouring down my cheeks. He looked up and goes, "Please don't cry Nember. You're making me sad."

Our wise little man. This cannot be the end. I cannot let go. We cannot get Takheo comfortable. He has tossed and turned all night. His breaths seem labored and forced. His body is hurting and he seems confused. Our poor baby. Somebody out there has to be able to save our Takheo. We're not giving up on him. We're having a really hard time keeping him comfortable. I cannot stand seeing him in pain.
