They stand there, the three of them, holding hands, a family circle so much smaller today, because of the one who lies only a few yards away, and yet who is unreachable. They call out, beg, plead for her life to be saved, but I know, as I walk out of the resuscitation room towards them, that this is one prayer that will not be answered.
