Hospital

My mom is in the hospital in St. Lucia. She had a cyst removed from the center of her chest yesterday and last night it began to bleed through the stitches and then the water pump for her house quit on her this morning and there was not a drop of water coming out the pipes so the doctor said I'm going to arrange a room for you at the hospital where the windows overlook the hills and the blue Caribbean sea and the breeze dances in through the open doors like a trickster rippling the covers and kissing you all over.

I am making the best of this news.

My mom has people all around her who arrange hospital beds at a moment's notice and call repair men to fix the water pump and get out of their beds at six in the morning to drive her to the hospital and her voice when she called to tell me she was on her way there sounded strong with no quaver at all so I have to believe her when she says she's going to be just fine.

  7. Oh, Angella. It really does sound like she'll be just fine.

    I know that all of those people around her taking care of her are not enough comfort for you, simply because they are not you. I know.

    Hugs to you, sister. Let us know when she is back home and her water is fixed.

  8. It sounds as if she is in the perfect place for her right now. Well, it would be if you were there of course, but it sounds as if she IS going to be just fine. Believe her. And think of her being the queen of the hospital and those beautiful breezes as she is tended to with respect.

  9. She is where she wants to be and she and you are blessed to have many people caring about and for her. To be able to look out of her window at the sea...
