This was my son. I keep thinking about him, wondering whether I can find any clues in his personality or behaviour to make sense of this unfathomable event. In so many ways he seemed a typical teenager with a pendulum swing of emotions and goals. He spent most of his time with his friends and not us, but we expected that and hoped for a healthy separation. Daniel defined himself by his athletic prowess, not by his academic pursuits, but he had visions of university, of moving on in 25 life, even though his goals were unclear.

We have little sense of minutes or hours passing in the hospital visitor's lounge. I feel numb, disconnected from anyone else around me, except Joel, whose hand I hold. We want to spend all our time with our son, but we're allowed to see him for only five or ten minutes per hour. His schedule must accommodate doctors' rounds, physiotherapist's activities, and numerous tests and procedures.

When I leave the kitchen, the puppy starts to whine. She scratches the wooden gate secured across the doorway. I hadn't realized she would be so needy. Every time I take a step, she follows me and tries to nestle on my toes. She whimpers until I'm back in sight. I set up my laptop computer on the kitchen table and plug it in. The puppy cuddles contentedly on my feet. As a young girl, I always preferred to do my homework in the warmth of the kitchen rather than in my own room. Perhaps this new venue will spur my writing along.
