Our two adult children were with me, at Merle’s bedside in the Cleveland Clinic Intensive care unit. We had been there for a couple days. There’s so much to say, but I can’t quite write about it yet. It has almost been three months and I still get these crippling memories. Today was the first day I read the opening page of this blog. The phrase, “they hurt me” sent me reeling. When I receive her autopsy report, I will try to return to this and fill in everything.
