Thanks to reader BB for passing along Paul Johnson’s Queensland Times report on Briony Lyle’s emotional interview on the one-year anniversary of Jarrod’s passing from acute myeloid leukemia.
In case you were thinking you had it rough…
Perhaps the hardest part of the story was hearing Briony recount how their daughters Lusi and Jemma were by his side until his death.
"We made the decision to start palliative care and drove home early that morning and had to wait till Lusi woke up and I had to say to her that the medicine is not working and that daddy is going to die," Briony Lyle told Bickmore.
"It was immediate sadness for her, which I had never seen before.
"She walked into his hospital room which she had been into so many times before and just walked over and held his hand.
"In the corner of his room there is a little whiteboard and there is a section that said do you have any questions for the doctor? And she wrote 'why isn't the medicine working'?"
So far Amazon is just offering this edition of the forthcoming book that will help support the family. If I get a link with more than two copies I’ll pass along here or Twitter.
