Part of the continuing saga of stuff I learned when close relatives were in a really bad auto accident.
Cheers to Ralph Nader. Sometimes you seem so far out but I thank you for instigating car safety features. Without air bags and seat belts I’d have two less relatives.
Cheers to the good medical folks who do the stuff I am not good at doing. Thank you for cleaning up and bathing and feeding when we aren’t around. Thank you for perking up spirits and making patients feel better emotionally too.
Jeers to that night nurse that intimidates my feisty sis-in-law. If you don’t like to get your hands dirty, you are in the wrong business. Don’t make her feel guilty when she can’t do what you want her to do. She’s doing the best she can. Perhaps you should try selling used cars.
Cheers to Mark Zuckerberg. There was no time for phone call notifications. Facebook and private messaging were the best way to get messages out fast and broadly.
Jeers to those who refuse to use Facebook. You don’t have to get sucked into all the garbage there but it’s a great place for updates from relatives. I considered using Caring Bridge as a place to post updates but many relatives were already on Facebook or had a close connection to someone who was on.
Cheers to chocolate. No more words necessary.
Healing continues. I believe in miracles.
