I’m usually very independent.
But, thinking of sitting there alone.
Waiting for the report.
Waiting for her to make it to recovery.
Sitting with her while she wakes.
Holding her while she cries.
Going through it alone.
No one to be there for emotional support.
No one to hold me up if something would go wrong.
Her. In pain. Sitting alone with a
stranger nurse while I get the car when we are
Instead of with her mom. While the dad gets the car.
She. Sits alone in the backseat riding home. In pain and drowsy.
Instead of curled up next to her mom.
While the dad drives.
I’m not like this.
I don’t usually need anyone to hold my hand.
I can usually handle it alone.
This is scary to me.
