a Merry Christmas...

is hard to have when...

a mother of ten suddenly finds that the new growth in her belly is not baby number eleven but a vicious, monstrous tumor.

a ten year old boy collapses and goes into coma when a blood vessel ruptures in his brain.

a newly-wed couple learns that what was originally thought to be a benign cyst in the wife's ovary turns out to be malignant.

the brother of my dear classmate passes away on the day after Christmas.

the two-year-old baby of a dear friend is diagnosed to have nephrotic syndrome.

the relatives of a middle aged man sign a do-not-resuscitate order for their beloved who is suffering from terminal illness.

the list goes on and on..
