In Home Birthday
As you know my sister has been in a nursing home for a few years. She suffered a severe stroke. Her husband cared for her at home as long as he could. Finally they found a nice facility for her.
Her husband and son visit her every day. Still she wishes to be at home.
My sister's birthday is 9 days after mine. She is 4 years younger than I am.
She recently turned 67 years old in the nursing home. I know she hated it but at the same time she was in good spirits when I spoke to her.
She is still paralyzed on one side of her body. Being unable to sit up means she is always in bed. Some days she has trouble breathing because of her inactivity.
I of course had to tease her about being so old. She was determined to never become old and here she is... 67 years old. How funny.
We used to laugh because she got rid of men (including husbands) when they turned 30. Who knew we would ever be this old?
Time is so precious. I remind all of us to enjoy it while we have it.
