For the first time in quite a while, everyone else is getting sick around me and it hasent affected me. Its kinda weird, especially since I havent been taking any vitamins or being extra careful to not get sick this time. I have been trying to focus more on Betsy, and maybe that has an impact on it. Who knows.
I guess Im getting ahead of myself. In case you forgot, Betsy is the lady I have been watching over that was a veteran of the Navy as a Nurse during Pearl Harbor, worked in the Burn Unit, taken care of children after the war that had horrible disfiguring burns and had a very fulfilling life.
I figured that her thread has been getting close to the end, so when Christmas came around and New Years, I wasent suprised when she lapsed into a final stroke/coma. The prognosis is that the doctors dont see her lasting past Wednesday; Saturday at the latest.
I have been writing about her for quite a while now, as well as discussed whats been going on in her whole medical situation, and yet I still feel I have yet to touch on what kind of person she was or how she impacted me. I dont know if Ill be ever able to do so. I guess its just all going to eventually be something I can release once shes gone. I have no clue.
Not much else has been going on, Ray just got over getting sick, Leslee from what Im told is the worse she has been in 20 years, Heidi lost her voice, and Erik also was starting to have sniffles when I saw him on Friday at the office.
Im hoping Ill be able to bypass this season of sicknesses, but Im pretty sure Im not going to. Im just not that lucky :)).
