It’s so much darker when a light goes out than it would have been if it had never shone.John Steinbeck
I’m keeping this short. I am tired from having been on the phone supporting a friend for most of last night.
One of my dear friends lost her elderly Mum to COVID last night. My friend’s young adult daughter is currently also intubated in ICU with COVID. Both of them were double vaccinated, but with immune issues. My friend lost her ex-husband and the father of her child to COVID last year.
And on top of all of that, my friend is a doctor working on the frontline of emergency health care in America. Her whole world outside work was her mum and daughter.
If you work with my planner, you will know about Dr Michelle. She’s provided one of the quotes near the front of the book. Dr Michelle works in COVID wards, and in surgery, amputating limbs of COVID patients who have developed blood clots or sepsis. She has a hard job, and she has already lost so much.
I’m just devastated for her.
If it feels right, please send some love and positive energy her way.
