THE ODDS (Debbie Does ALS)


Come and play

Delightful caregiver Courtney stopped by this evening for a visit, bringing dinner, her friend Kyle and son Ethan. Dinner (salad for me, pizza for everyone else) was eaten in my room while we watched Ethan being a cutie-pie three year old.

As he chowed down on his pizza, Ethan looked around my petite chambre. His bright eyes alit on the piece of yellow paper prominently placed beside my bed. "What's that?" he asked. All the grown-ups were silent until quick-on-her-feet Jenny said, "It's a Do Not Resuscitate paper."  Satisfied with this response and not requiring any more explanation, Ethan went back to his pizza.

Jenny titled this scene Sesame Street Goes to Hospice.
