This is my last post for 2020. It’s been an extremely challenging year, to say the least. COVID-19 has ushered in so many changes in our lives.
The most significant event of this year was my mother’s passing. She’d always stay up on New Year’s Eve, to watch the ball drop in NYC. How very much I miss her. I’ll definitely be thinking of her at midnight. How I wish I could make her another cup of tea.
I witnessed my daughter going through a divorce, as well as fracturing her foot. Her healing was exceptionally delayed. I’m thankful that I’ve been able to spend time with her. I know that this year has been extremely painful for her.
Medically-speaking, this year has been full of appointments. I had a total hysterectomy, plus bladder sling surgery, steroid injections in my neck, and multiple medication changes. I’m very pleased that my MS has been stable. I also didn’t require a throat dilatation surgery this year.
With respect to work, I’ve had several residents pass away, exhibit cognitive decline, or be transferred from the nursing homes where I work. I started to provide online therapy sessions for BetterHelp. I continue to write my monthly column for Rochester Woman Online.
I pray that 2021 is a much better year, filled with fewer losses.
