I know we have all been so good isolating, but there are times when one wants to be with family for moral support but distance and the pandemic stops us.
My dear older sister's husband is very sick with ALS, and was just admitted to hospital today with pneumonia. The outcome is not good, but even if his lungs get better, his body is failing him.
I live on the west coast of Canada, and the rest of my family is in central Canada. I have two sisters and a brother that all live within 30 km of each other, and the younger sister and my brother and their families have been a great support for my older sister and husband. Helping with household jobs, helping with the paperwork and forms that are necessary with a sick husband and in-home care. Bless their hearts, it is good to know family is there when you need them.
I am just feeling helpless on this side of the country, and only there for moral support on the phone. I wish I could do more.
This pandemic is so difficult in so many ways. Not to be able to be there and give a hug or make a meal for those in need. I look forward to the time hopefully next spring when we are able to travel again.
Thanks for allowing me to vent. I know we are all in a difficult time.
