Our call was later than normal and filled with more medical jargon than usual, but the caring and concern for our surrounding family members was the same.
Her hearing and her mind were sharp tonight which helped dispel some of the recent disappointing news as I had answers to all of her questions.
“I’d completely forgotten that had happened 15 years ago,” Maga said in an effort to frame it in a way she understood, in a way that revolved around her own daily life.
I allowed this line of thought because I figured it’d help everyone out if she better understood why her most frequent out of town visitor had to cancel a trip out west.
And it did seem to work. She sounded calmer, more clear, and steadier as we wrapped up the conversation.
“I wish you health and happiness,” she said in lieu of goodbye. I wished her (and everyone in my family) the same.
