Hell: Round 3

Do not worry about us. We will be fine.

I will try not to worry about you.

I know I will survive.

This is not my first battle, you see.

I have enough fire in me to light up half the planet.

That’s why my sister calls me Snapdragon.

I would like to blame it on the PTSD, but it happened long before that.

Some day I will tell you that story.

Stay safe.

Goodbye for now.


Isolation Irony

Rose is home from college due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

So instead of being isolated by her epilepsy, she is now isolated by an outside disease.

My dad is under “lockdown” ( due to COVID-19 ) in the rehab center following a cancer surgery in December.

So he is now in there alone without us to care for his many needs.

All this isolation to prevent the spread of an invisible foe.

I hope and pray we miss this new and vicious virus.

On the other hand I feel in my element.

I have been studying diseases for decades.

Oh, if only I could jump into the fray instead of sitting here alone

educated and isolated.

Everybody’s Mama
