Before Nat passed (almost six months ago now) she had nearly completed one last blog post. While working on it, she’d entered her final phase of life, dealing with the struggle of a failing body and increasingly dire doctors’ appointments. Nevertheless, like the others, this one tackles the emotion and the difficulty of her illness with frankness, clarity, and, of course, her inimitable style.
Her blog has been a great source of meaning to me since she started writing it through to today and I spent some time wondering how and when to share this. Eventually, I decided that it was best to let her speak here as she’d always done. I’m sad she didn’t get to publish it herself, but hope you all enjoy connecting with Nat’s words again.
Below, you’ll find the final entry to Nat’s blog, “The Guest Room (The Baby Room)”
