Sister Dear

Posted in Journal with tags , , , on 17/02/2011 by Jen Healey

As I write this my poor little sister will have been under the knife not two hours ago.  Not for any frivolous cosmetic reason, she’s only twenty-three and cute as a button.  But she has had repeated operations on her shoulder, for a long time.  Halfway through that last sentence I got a text stating that she’s just come back from operating theatre and may be going home tonight. 

It’s funny how, when you’ve spent all day distracting yourself and being busy, that when you hear eveything is alright you realise just how worried you really were.  No matter how many times you tell yourself that you are being daft, and that there’s no reason to fear losing someone you love, when they are young and fit, sometimes you just can’t help it.  Sorry Lotte.  But my relief at that little text message took me by surprise. 

Also, I’m really hoping to stop having the Mighty Boosh crimpette ‘Captain Cabinets’ from going round and round in my head, as it’s been in there all day – yes Lotte I blame you for that – and ‘Eels’ of course! 

Here they are for a little payback 🙂

I love you sis.  Feel better soon x
