I had woke up in the middle of the night freezing. Charlie was snoring. I must have said it was freezing out loud and was also surprised (he was just snoring) because he said to go and cuddle with him. He has been in so much pain that I have been afraid to hurt him by putting pressure on him with my arms or body. I told him my concern, that I didn't want to hurt him. He said, "You won't, move close to me." He started to snore again. I just lay there listening to him. The tears started to stream down the side of my cheek. I whispered, "Don't leave me." Gently holding me closer to him, he whispered back, "I won't leave you."
