An unstructured life

I’d asked Linda in to discuss her bone density.  The usual stuff--enough bone to get through her life but no more must be lost.  Calcium, D, exercise, drugs...

Wait!  We’ve got tears, lots of them.  What’s going on?  This can’t be just bone!

Lost job, lost love, no bones about it.  What’s the drug for lost hope?

Poignant and true.

Thanks for the visit to my blog and comment. I really appreciate it.

My neighbor needs a drug for lost hope; she has Parkinson's, had a hip replacement in Oct., a shoulder replacement in Nov. and last week she fell and broke her femur just under the hip socket. She's very depressed and has lost all hope.

I found when life kicked my butt, giving to others in the midst of my own pain, helped relieve my own burden and restored... hope.

I'm sorry for your patient. Thankful she has you.

(like your blog too)
