TSK: LOL makes me LOL
- Cranquis *practically yelling to be heard by mostly-deaf Little Old Lady*: Ok, I'm going to examine your leg now!
- 80-something LOL: Ooh your hands are cold!
- Cranquis: I'm sorry, but thanks for warming up my fingers!
- LOL: Oh you don't have to flirt with me, I know I'm pretty hot.
- Cranquis *laughing*: Well ma'am, I think you've got some arthritis showing up in your knee.
- LOL: What?! Arthritis! In a spry young 25-year-old like me??!
- Cranquis: *guffaw*

For a couple of years now, my mom has had serious physical troubles.
She used to play piano at my church, she had to stop. She spends most of the day on the couch, and when she gets up, she needs a wheelchair. When she does occasionally walk, she’s hunched over. Her hands are curled up, she has terrible back pains, every day I hear her screaming and crying from the pain she’s in.
She’s been to the doctor a few times now and she found out that she has lupus, arthritis, scoliosis, and a degenerative disc. My father, who has broken both of his legs twice and is over sixty, supports my family of five. One of my brothers can’t find work, the other is in college and can’t find work. Even though my dad is a senior and has serious trouble walking, he works for himself as a door and window installer. He works six days a week in the Florida heat for up to twelve hours a day. No one in my family is on disability, though they’re probably eligible.
I worry about my dad every day. Both times he broke his legs, he was working. And now with my mom, I’m worried even more.
Please keep my family in your prayers if you’re at all religious. If not, please just keep them in your thoughts.
When I grow up, I really want to be a filmmaker. I don’t care at all about how much money I have when I’m older. At least, I didn’t used to. I don’t care about how much I have, but I want my family to be okay. I want my dad to not have to work and I want my mom to get all of the help she needs. That’s my biggest motivation for being creative right now. I’m terrified of what could happen to my dad at any moment and that my mom might be bound to a wheelchair forever.
So again, please pray for my family. I’d appreciate it more than I could ever say.
Thank you <3
