So, I'm going to my brother's house in New Mexico to ... I almost typed "to spend hospice with him," like it was a family holiday.
Earlier today I used the term "to steer his hospice," which sounds threatening.
His cancer was very fast, and unexpected. A week ago the doctors saw infection on a scan, now they've biopsied it and it's inoperable cancer.
I have to leave Gary behind, because he's got his own family concerns. This is not the vacation I was looking for. Of course, I am not dead, so I cannot complain.
