I see a different you

Having decided that we are not going to go ahead with further treatment for the boy, I finally got round to writing to the Big National Hospital to tell them. Been putting it off for some days. Didn't want to do it. A sense of finality about our decision in telling the hospital. Hard to write the email - one of the hardest. Hid behind clinical language. Still feel guilty about not going with further treatment, despite the decision. And rather empty. Everything will now move from the oncology team to the palliative care team.

This kind of thing shouldn't have to be said in an email. There should be a solemn march, a muffled drum.

I know everyone reading wishes there was a way to be a better friend to you all now.
