Over the last couple of days I have found myself in an emotionally dilemma. Someone very close to me is suffering and I am powerless to help. There has always been time where I have stood up for this person no matter what the situation but in this one I can't. Whether it was protecting them or just helping them deal with the everyday problems. The problem is that he is in the hospital and I can do nothing to help but go for emotionally support yet it feels like I am doing nothing. All I can do is sit in the hospital room and look over him with the oxygen mask and IV's streaming from his arm to the machine. I just wish that I could fight his battle for him this time since he has already been through so much.
As a child he was born with a hole in his heart and was rushed to surgery to mend the hole.
Growing up he had to endure going to checkup frequently all the way to St. Louis. He missed out on playing all the sports he loved but came to watch me and support me in his dreams. Even as I kid he had to take pills everyday just to make sure his heart would not fail and his body goes into a seizer. I know it's but possible to change bodies but I wish I could for one day so he could feel normal and healthy like me.
Even though he could not participate is all the event or sports he loved Keith is still the coolest person I know. No matter the situation he can always make you laugh either by his cool and collected personality, to his crazy antics, and his hilarious jokes. You would never now just by looking at him that anything was actually wrong with him. I don't really matter that anything is wrong with him physically, Keith will always be the same no matter what he goes through and I will always be there to help him in any way possible.
