Family Resemblance

Mrs A has a cold. A pretty nasty one, fever nearly 40c.

She's been to the doc, it's not influenza, just one hell of a cold, he gave her some meds to help out.

So yeah, she's taking the day off.

But when I got home from work, she was asleep in bed. She heard me come in, her eyes opened in a kind of unfocused way and...

...she looked



her mother


...towards the end, her brain squeezed by tumors and pummeled by surgeries, her consciousness slowly sublimating into oblivion.

That was not a good feeling.
