My Family

Improved Essays
It was always a mystery to see what would happen next in my family. From traveling coast to coast in the United States, to visiting Europe, and my favorite which was Canada, my family was always up to something whether it be good or bad. Family to me was something that I could never withstand being apart from. I loved my parents, Richard and Barbara, but I was closer to my older sister Misty. Misty and I were closer than any other siblings have ever been in the existence of this earth. Dad and Mom were always in our business, but did not know half the stuff we talked about. Not to be cocky by any means, but my parents had a lot of money and that was one thing I didn 't really like. Most kids would die to be rich and have a “perfect” lifestyle, …show more content…
It 's your big day!” yelled my Mom. A moan came dribbling out of my mouth as if going to school was the same as being put in a death camp. I got ready, but very slowly. I had to be in class at 8:00 or I would be late. Mom said we needed to leave the house by 7:40. Misty was very excited about going to school which she loved. I on the other hand had no business being at school. I still tried hard, hard enough to make A’s at least. “Out the door” Mom yelled. I could hear the garage door raise. Misty pranced out the doorway as if she was perfect and never made any harsh mistakes. I threw my book bag over my shoulder, grabbed my gym bag and ran out as Mom blew the horn. We arrived at school in an orderly fashion. Mom pulled to the front of the school and dropped us off. “Have a great day John and Misty-boo” said Mom, as Misty and I got out of the Lexus and wandered off into the …show more content…
After 10 minutes had elapsed, which felt like an hour, the nurse finally called my name and asked me and my Mom to come back. When the doctor arrived and came into the room, he started by asking my entire family history, where I came from, what school I go to, what my name was, if I had a girlfriend, and I nonchalantly answered all his useless questions. As the doctor examined me, he started acting as if I was an alien of some sort. He asked if I had any rashes anywhere on my body and I showed him a couple spots on my stomach and back. He was readily surprised as he asked me if I had been having any aching pains and symptoms in the past few months and I replied yes. I was nervous as to why he was asking me these questions, but I went with the flow, for I knew he was a gift from God. He also asked how I had been sleeping lately, which I replied by telling him how I had sweated a lot, had lots of headaches, and how I would wake up during midnight sleep. The doctor looked stunned and pale. He said he would be right back in a few minutes to draw some blood from my finger. The doctor returned just as fast as he got away. He had me lay my finger flat on a counter as he pricked the flesh and drew blood right out of my finger. He said he didn 't think it was a virus, but something much worse. I thought I was going to cry and have an emotional break down in the middle of Urgent Care. I could

    She just opened the garage door when I shouted, “Bye, Mom! Have a good day.” Mom, obviously flabbergasted, replied back, “You too, honey.” I think that was the nicest thing she ever said to me. Lucy accompanied me to the edge of the driveway, then said she would see me back here once school got out. I didn’t question it, and went on my way. Throughout the day, I though that everyone would notice I seemed much happier; I was right.…

    When I arrive to the emergency room they check me in taking my blood pressure and my temperature. When they took it was a little bit too high because I was scared and worried. Then they told us to take a sit to wait until there is a room available. After 30 mins of waiting they took me into a room and they first took x- ray to see if I had glass inside the wound because my foot touch the garbage bag and probably cut my leg by a glass there is nothing else that couldn’t cut my…

    My mom was to have surgery later that night but we decide to go back home to get to school for the next day for my football game.

    When I came out I was in a lot of pain, I could hear my mom´s voice and that calmed me down.

    She told me that she talked to Papa this morning, and he seemed kind of out of it, so she left work to check on him. When she arrived, he told her that he took some of the leftover morphine, being from when my grandmother had in-home hospice in 2009. Stubborn. He was experiencing intolerable shoulder pain. We asked many, many times if he wanted to go to the hospital, and I’m sure anyone can assume the answer.…
