A moment of heaven (during this time in hell)

In Brandon's hospital room, in the small twin-sized hospital bed, I lay down beside my love and put my head on his shoulder.
He kissed my forehead and stroked my hair.
He told me he loves me.
He told me "I will beat this".
We fell asleep together for about an hour - in each other's arms - as it should be.



  1. Wow... speechless... AMAZING... :)

  2. So happy to hear that you shared that time together!

  3. Dear Brandon and Taly,

    We wish you this to be only the first of the many moments of heaven that you will enjoy in 2010 and beyond!

    Dear Brandon,
    I just heard about your illness and just felt that I had to reach out to you to let you know that I am thinking about you, that my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
    My family is dealing with their own fight against cancer as well. My brother-in-law is battling his own war right now. Although I don't know what you are specifically going through I do know all the strength, love and support that you need and it sounds like you are getting it ten fold. Hold on to that and keep fighting. In turn, while I have been sending all my strength, love, support and positive energy to by brother-in-law I will also send it your way.
    You are in my thoughts and prayers everyday. Risa Abrams
