More Than Anything
« on: September 30, 2014, 01:13:30 AM »
They kept telling me she was virtually dead, that she probably didn't even realize she was alive. She had lost function of every part of her body, there was something plugged into almost every orifice on her body.

The sound of constant suction and pumping and beeping and rattling, it was the sound of my baby. It's how she spoke to me these days.

If the sounds were rapid she was afraid.

If the sounds were soft and constant she was content.

They told me keeping her alive would bankrupt me, trying to convince me to kill her.

They had clearly never lost a child before.

She was all that I had left, couldn't they see that?

I needed her more than any monetary amount.

I needed her more than anything.

More than anything.
