Screams for my mother

Written on the flight from London to Chicago


NO NO NO NO NO NO NO


COME BACK COME BACK COME BACK COME BACK


IT WAS A COLONOSCOPY--WHAT DO YOU MEAN SHE CODED AT THE BEGINNING OF THE PROCEDURE?


WHO WERE THE TWO DOCTORS WHO TURNED HER AWAY, SAYING IT WAS STOMACH FLU? GIVE ME THEIR NAMES


NO YOU CAN'T YOU CAN'T LEAVE ME HERE ALL ALONE


WE WERE SUPPOSED TO HAVE ANOTHER VISIT WE WERE SUPPOSED TO HAVE THREE WEEKS TOGETHER


YOU WERE SUPPOSED TO LIVE FOREVER

    These last few posts have been heartbreaking, Carrie. I am so very sorry for such another traumatising loss - so relatively soon after that of your father, too, and in equally agonising-sounding circumstances. Your pain, anger and disbelief is felt and although my words will do little to heal or help, please know that they are sent with all my love, praying that you might know some extraordinary measures of relief and comfort during these sad days.

  3. You have friends, let us do what we can. I can't tell you how angry I am for you and your family. It's so desperately wrong what happened to your amazing and lovely parents.

    best wishes,

    Alan
