There is nothing Woody or anyone can do now. The doctors said that it’s just a matter of days, maybe hours. When his wife Rosabuz arrived at this hospital, they were hopeful that she can recover in a few weeks.
But 10 months have passed since then. And now, she’s finally succumbing to her deadly disease – Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML).
After many weeks of chemotherapy which actually gave nil result and which only made her weaker and feebler, everyone was now accepting that her time to depart was near.
Her physical appearance has also changed so significantly over the months. She has lost a lot of weight, lost much hair (her head was wrapped in cloth) and her face now looked so pale and dull like a dried leaf that fell from a tree.
Woody entered the hospital room, almost tiptoeing, not wanting to awake his wife of 7 years and his sweetheart of 15 years.
“Is that you Woody?” Rosabuz asked. She wanted to turn and look at her husband but it has been a difficult effort for weeks now. Just trying to open her eyes seemed like a monstrous task. She was always so tired these days.
