Not so Merry this year
Sorry it has taken so long for me to do this monthly update, I do apologize, but I had a very bad month. November began with someone close to me developing complications after an October open heart surgery. Unfortunately an infection set in and the hospital where the patient was taken was busy with a COVID-19 outbreak that sidelined her care, as such it was five to six days after she was admitted that they realized she was in critical condition and needed to be sent to a Cardiac hospital for an emergency operation to counter the damage done by the infection. Sadly it was too little too late. The Cardiac Hospital said that if she had been transferred just two days earlier they could have saved her, as it was my mother died on November 19th, just eleven days shy of her 70th birthday, of heart failure. She was admitted to the first hospital on November 5th, transferred to the second at the end of the following week and died a week later. As you can guess I have not been thinking about blogs or writing during this time. I will post a chapter excerpt some time this month, but I am not currently able to concentrate on which piece to post. I was very close to my mother; we thought alike, we talked alike, and even spoke in unison on occasion, which tended to amuse some people and freak out others. One family friend used to laugh about the fact that we "spoke in stereo," while someone else we knew would always make a cross with his fingers and say that two people saying the same thing at exactly the same time was unlucky. We also finished each other's sentences. One of my cousins said that she envied my close relationship with my mother, as we seemed to be more like twins than mother and daughter. I hope everyone else's holiday season will be a much happier one than mine will be this year. Happy Holidays everyone.
