Letters to Tuvia #4

Dear T,

Right now my FB page is lighting up like never before.

A Life Well Lived, Tuvia Rosenberg.  

Correct, but you are not quite gone.  The machines and tubes continue to keep you “alive” by someone else’s definition, but for me you left last Friday as we talked together for the last time.

Today, Ami and Ron and I sat with a neurologist who shared his analysis of you CAT scan.  Deep coma, brain damage.  He wasn’t really describing you.

Add to that- a machine is breathing for you and  another is pumping your heart.

You are not here with us.

A Life Well Lived, Tuvia Rosenberg.

Tomorrow morning when the head of CC Unit finally sits with us the machines will be turned off and I will feel comfortable to sit next to your bed and  kiss you  goodbye, even if I won’t really feel it yet because I am still frozen in time, going through the motions.  But one day soon I will defrost and then my life as I know it will change.

But right now my love, people are sending me lovely messages about us even before it’s official. You would love them.

T, I miss you.  I will always miss you,

Bonnie S.
