He was exhausted, but he knew he couldn't risk falling asleep. Not yet at least. He knew this day was coming. For years, Chrones Disease had weakened her joints, destroyed her digestive tract, and broken her spirit. Remicade had worked for a while.

The only thing they can do can induce a chemical coma and make her as comfortable as possible. He knew the day was coming, the day he could no longer hold on to the hope that things would be different. The day he would bury his world 6 feet under. The day his Earth will stand still....
