My sister gave me a card today. She bought it the day before and she covered the entire card stock with writing. That’s actually how I prefer my cards and letters. If you’re relying on carlton cards or papyrus to tell me your thoughts, I’ll stop you right there and advise you to not waste your money.
Things have been difficult at home lately, mainly because of my grandma’s hospitalization and yenoe female hormonal cycles lol. It’s tough living with a household of women. We’re emotional creatures and when we fail to communicate, I think that’s when we start to get passive aggressive and our attitude starts to shift.
My sister and I have always had a supportive relationship. We’ve found ways to understand each other and this was the method she chose to use this time.
My grandma’s still at the hospital right now. I’ve lost count of the days she has been away from home. I’ve been trying to visit her every day, or at least every other day.
I haven’t had an opportunity to sit down and hold her hand like this for a very long time. Years of labour has caused her hands to become dry, thin and brittle. Recently she has been getting daily blood work, so her bruises are becoming more and more evident under her fragile skin. Blotches of red, blue and purple are sporadically appearing on both arms.
Humans are so delicate. I suppose bones would be the hardest element in our body, and even that breaks easily. We’re basically a bag of fluids with a skeleton acting as a stand up pole. One major puncture and we would deflate and spill like an egg yolk.
Right now it’s just a waiting game. We have to wait for the biopsy results to come out to fully rule out malignancy. Once the ulcers are fully under control, she’ll begin heparin transfusions again. Gradually they’ll transition her to oral anti-coagulants so she can go home.
Everything will be fine, I know it.
She’s my kittitayy 😚 i just realized we only have less than a year left to carpool together 😱 #nursingschool #vancouver #fotd #ootd #instahub #instadaily #selfie
