Some questions, I think, should not be asked. “Pneumonia,” the doctor replied, and uncrossed her legs to stand. The appointment was clearly over, as we had reached a subject she was not prepared to embrace. Although I compartmentalized Tammy’s cancer like I do everything else, there were times it could not be pushed to the corner. One night she was reading in bed and had dozed off. The bandana she wore at night to keep her head warm had slipped off and lay on the pillow next to her. Tammy’s skin was slightly gray from the previous day’s round of chemo.
How were we to know that one day they would grow to be like the front and back cover of a book—matching opposites—with so much separating them? Since dinner parties were out of the question (not that they happened often before the girls’ arrival), we covered our dining room table with a large pad and plastic tablecloth for changing the babies when downstairs. Tammy’s friend Sue would come over on Sunday afternoons and help us with laundry. While Tammy simultaneously fed the two babies, Sue and I would cook as much food as we could squeeze into our freezer for the week ahead.
This was unusual, but not alarming. We lived in a tidy and well-groomed neighborhood of old brick homes, with well-groomed neighbors that kept to themselves. The kitchen, which we had recently renovated, was orderly and calm. Our nanny had already fed the kids and cleaned up dinner. “Hey,” I called into the den to my preteen son playing on his Xbox. He grunted a response. I dropped my satchel and called up the stairs “Helloooo,” with just enough sarcasm to elicit a “Hi” from one of my twin seven-year-old daughters, Taryn.
