09 newletter (poem "Reversal" by Elaine Sparrow)

January 13, 2010 at 5:36 pm

My sister is in the hospital with CIDP. She has been completely paralyzed for a month. Unable to speak. Hooked up to feeding tubes, catheters, vents and trachs. Only 30 years old.

Your poem hit the nal on the head. I could see where you were. I was in the room with you. I heard the noises and saw what you saw.

Thank you so much for giving my sister the voice that she doesn’t have right now.

If anyone hasn’t read this, you must.
