Hospital

It is a terrible thing to see someone who's raised you - always a dynamic person, powerful of personality and strong of spirit... reduced to a shell. Barely coherent. Pinned to the bed by tubes and apparti like a butterfly on a collector's card.

Terrible - frightening. Each breath, I am reminded, we go closer to the boneyard - each breath. One day, we are all reduced to a husk - but today it's my grandmother, and it was wrenching to witness.

For now, all I can do... all i can think to do.
Is to be not sober.
