... And may I introduce Pyro's brother, born a year and three months after his passing.

Let this be the last entry here (unless I revisit this again to mull over how life has progressed without Py years from now), the perfect testament to how the circle of life continues, and how God's grace and love continues.

Ice was born on Easter Sunday, in Tagalog, Linggo ng Pagkabuhay... I can't think of a more fitting sign from above, or from Py. New life, new love, new things to hope for.

My brother cried and cried yesterday. He told me he's still not feeling okay about being back in a hospital, more so, the hospital where his firstborn was delivered. I will admit, the hospital haunted me too... esply after I saw the lobby where Pyro ran about while we were waiting for a cab to take us to PCMC. That was his first confinement.

My brother was also not yet ready to view Ice at the nursery and I really feel for him. Hopefully, Ice will be the final treatment to my brother and sister-in law's wounds... and he will heal his parents' loss... and they will enjoy a life ahead as a family.

I had and still have my worries too, scared that my brother won't lavish as much affection on Ice as he did on Py... because he'd be scared to get too attached again. Or that he might feel he's being disloyal to Py's memory. I have no such fears over my SIL because a mother loves all her children, regardless of whether they are alive or not.

I end my chronicles here, not because there is no more pain in remembering how Py is no more. There will always be pain and longing for him. But I have vowed to love Ice more than I ever did Py, because he'd be the closest thing we will have of Py and because I don't want him ever to feel that he has to replace Py for us. And I vow to protect him from any dangerous comparisons and expectations arising from a much-loved, but dead, older brother.

And I know Py understands and wants the same.

Now, both Py and Yakee are kuyas :)
