Canada celebrates 150 this year – its Flag Day – so wave that Canadian Flag.
Right now, I’m thinking that is the only thing to celebrate.
Every time I turn around someone I know has a family member in the hospital. My social life of late is hitting the Big H.
I have become a regular to the hospital scene. I’ve gotten to know the volunteer switch board operator, Jean. And the security guys too!
Plus – friends and acquaintances “Hello, (insert name), who are you visiting?”
WHAT IS GOING ON!
Our mom is a “Super Senior” at 97, she is still very vibrant and I can’t even imagine how she feels in this transition period.
Olive has 2 sisters that are also in their 90’s and also very independent, strong women.
Having to wait and see what will happen next is painful in so many ways.
Where will a person go, as per their living arrangements. What kind of lifestyle changes await.
As a single person it also leads to some soul searching and if you want to drill down, what does that future look like .. YIKES!
Baby boomers abound, and while genetics look like a long life in the Evans/Elliott lineage – who’s going to have my best interest in mind.
A long life should be celebrated, there are so many variables to take into consideration.
There are lots of people going through various levels of this. I get it now .. it is hard.
