Wow. What a Christmas! This year, my family was able to go and see our family in Michigan. The only bad part was that we only got to go for an extended weekend, or four days. It didn't give us much time to see all of our families on both sides. But we did get to see everybody that was important. This year, we had to make sure that we went to see my great aunt. Ever since she was a little girl, she has had muscular dystrophy. She cannot walk, so she has to use a wheelchair. Earlier this year she came down with Pneumonia. But it's wasn't the same for her as it is for us. She was hospitalized, and then came down with many other sicknesses. Since she could not really fend for herself that well, so her immune system wouldn't fight it off. She now has a Trake, or a breathing tube in her throat. She has been forced to be put on Life Support. Its VERY scary because we never know what she will come down with next. She hasn't come down with anything since Christmas, and we think she is getting better. With any luck, she could be out by March... but not any sooner.
