I felt badly this morning as I blew my hair dry and put on an outfit that seemed to match just a little too well. As I pulled on my good boots and got ready to go see Phil in the hospital I felt indulgent for looking so much better than I felt. For looking too nice. It felt so damned inappropriate because Phil is dying.
He is in renal failure, isn't making platelets or red cells and is not eating well. He can't tolerate anymore chemotherapy and has come to the end of his long journey. Valiance and courage continue to characterize his life and those of us gathered here are blessed to be alongside him as he faces the challenges of the coming days.
Pray for a peaceful passage for our Iron Man warrior, father, son, brother, husband and friend.
