Progenitor



Here was another grunge night of haphazard sleep, ever present the distant choomp of the oxygen condenser and Segev's grating rasp as he inhaled, throwing himself about regularly with myoclonic seizures, I, repositioning and suctioning then thirty seconds after I fall back onto the bed  snuggling the bed cover he displaces the probe on his foot and waits as I try to jump back to my feet but only manage a staccato groan and slow rise. The ICU professor still maintains his extraordinary interest with an early morning call. Upsa daisy.

  1. It's nice to get a visit from anyone really? Another adult to talk to. Someone you can solely talk about Segev to. You could probably do with it not being first thing in the morning though. The tiredness makes social interaction so much harder.

  2. Not counting my ex whom i don't speak to about Segev, haven't had a social call for at least seven years.

  3. Eric, Have not commented in a long time. Not sure what to say or how to provide support from such a great distance. Caring for Segev is isolating as you know. Is it possible to change this? Not likely as you would have already done so. I offer instead long distance support.
