A Sad Time

Yesterday morning my auntie passed away. She had been fighting her battle for life for a month or so now, and it seems she just couldn’t take it any more. She went into unconsciousness on Tuesday and from that point everybody knew it was the end. She was relatively young, around 52, which makes it seem very strange to me. What makes it more strange – and sad – was that the last time I saw her (I didn’t visit her in hospital) was at my grandfather’s funeral back in May.

I’m not sure of the details, but from what I can tell her death was entirely preventable. She went in for a major piece of surgery but was doing well immediately afterwards; unfortunately, due to hospital incompetence, from what I can tell, other things happened which complicated things. She began to develop other problems and so over time she got weaker and weaker, until she couldn’t take any more. It’s such a tragedy. And so I will be going to the second funeral I’ve ever been two, and it’s within 6 months of the first.

I did cry a little, but no as much as with my grandfather, though I don’t know why. I expect I will make up for it at the funeral (I cried a lot at my grandfather’s funeral so probably will here too). She had a facebook profile, and I left a message on there for her, telling her to say hello to my grandfather when she sees him in heaven. At least she’s not suffering now.

I’m crying a little again now. Life is unfair.
