Thoughts About Mike’s Hand

I was a bit shaken with the video visit with my brother Mike, yesterday.  Mike was hospitalized with some serious health issues.  The medical folks aren’t even sure he can be removed from the respirator.  However, it was something (comparably) minor that caught my attention. Mike’s hand was in an unnatural position. It looked painful.

Mike’s Hand

Mike’s hands were very delicate.  I used to spend a lot of time with Mike, years ago.  I liked it when he would reach for my hand.

His hands were expressive.

so Although sometimes it was a mystery what he was expressing.

It was sad to see his crippled hand.
