Silent Night



Today's muse: Three Word Wednesday

Today's words: educate, object, silence

Silent Night

The object of the conference was to educate the family members, explain the options available and potential outcome of the treatment; but the bleak future Dr. Fischer projected was met with complete silence.

Excuse me, I think I left my spleen on the floor there. I agree with the others, razor sharp indeed. Your write packs so much into a small package, just amazing what great writing can do. Thanks for sharing this, I will clean up my spleen later...

Thanks everyone! I worked in funeral service for 12 years and I'm married to a funeral director. Writing about death and illness comes naturally, though I worry about triggering sad memories for someone. The holidays are always difficult for those who have lost loved ones. I wish you all peace this holiday season.
