Now I Know Better

On a Thursday year of 2015, I realized making people laugh isn’t as good as it seems in certain situations. After school, my mom and siblings decided that we should go to the park, to hang out with some friends. It was a good weather to go, not too cold and not too hot, so I didn’t refuse. As we got there, me and my older sister, Sondos, wanted to go for a walk near the fountains because we got bored from sitting down and wanted to see the ducklings swim around the fountains. The fountains went really high and would splash you. After sitting there for about five to ten minutes we started walking again.

After three to five tries, he gave up and insisted that he need to a surgery because he’s unable to get the pin out. After hearing that I thought to myself that I might lose my sister and that it’s all my fault. Like, why did I have to remind her of the inside joke, but man it was funny. Not funny now, because Sondos is dying!!
The surgery went fine, an hour later the doctor returned and showed us the pin that was in her throat and asked us if we wanted to keep it. Mom 's response was “NO,” but in my head I thought, why not, good memory huh? The doctor then asked to keep it because out of all the patients he’s had, this one is very special and bizarre. They brought Sondos out and said to us she can not speak for a week or so, so her throat heals better. The way from the hospital to our house she wouldn’t keep her mouth shut! Waw sister, you’re doing your job too, very, I mean, VERY well. Now I know and learned and WILL never repeat making people laugh in certain situations. Especially this

    When I came out I was in a lot of pain, I could hear my mom´s voice and that calmed me down. They told me that the pins didn't work and so they would had to put in two plates and eleven screws in my arm. Now a month after my surgery I went back in for a checkup, they told me I needed to plan for therapy. After more X-rays they first told me that I didn't need to do therapy and they were surprised. They then told me that I could never get the plates and screws removed because my bone was growing over top of it.…

    I want to let the community know that people don’t deserve to find out that they have cancer by a rude doctor who could care a less if you live or die. Next, she proceeded to tell us that my pap has a large mass on his lung. She bluntly told him, “You can go home and call hospice or you can stay here and we can get the fluid off your lungs.” It felt like someone punched me in the stomach when I heard the doctor say that my pap has a large mass on his lung.

    My freshman year my grandma started undergoing a lot of chemo and radiation treatments when the surgery had failed that previous spring. I can only guess what she was thinking when they told her the news. I know I just wanted her to be better; I wanted my spirited grandma back, the one who taught me and my brother to walk on those big oil barrels, the only person I can remember singing about even the smallest things, who passed on her love of art to me. After her first few treatments she struggled with her eating habits losing too much weight, when she really should have been eating more to keep up her strength. Her face was pale and she was very frail.…
