I spent several hours setting up a skype setup with IT today for Mr. Kielhorn’s last class. It was all I could do to keep from crying while I was sitting there changing transparencies for him as he struggled through his lecture from the ICU. I feel so unbelievably bad for him and his family. Man today was rough. I feel numb and ultra-sensitive at the same time. Talking with his daughter and grandaughter while they tried to be strong in front of people. All those jokes people make when people are dying. Lighthearted jokes that everybody laughs at. They aren’t really funny, but everybody laughs because they have to let some emotion out and they don’t want to cry. My heart feels like it is made out of lead. This is all too familiar, too close, and I hate it.
