We always look for "happy" endings, but sad ones are reality in our lives. Well done.

Oh man. I wanted a happy ending so badly. Scuse me while I go cuddle mt kids. Oh.. and excellent writing by the way.
This sad story certainly fits the topic well. I'm hoping it's fiction.

wow! That's all I can say. If this is fiction, it's very good, if it's a memory, I'm so sorry.

This was very well written, I read as fast as I could, wanting a happy ending, but understanding that she went home.
Wonderufully written and heartbreaking. My son had to be life-flighted last month to a children's hospital and we had a 50 minute drive as well, so this was very real to me.
