A few days ago I received a text message from the wife of a lifetime friend. The last time I saw them was three years ago when I went to Hawaii to see family. It was so great to see them.
She had sent me a photo of my best friend. Just to put it in perspective, I was their best man at their wedding, 40 plus years ago.
In the three years since I seen them, he had suffered a broke ankle, just recovered in August, how awful, only to be told that he has been on dialysis for two years now.
This photo of him broke my heart. He's sitting in a wheel chair, waiting for a bus to bring him back home after session with dialysis. The look in his eyes I will never forget. I feel his journey and it pains me.
