I have heard from my sister again; the one who lives in St. Lucia. She has fallen off a ladder, whilst painting her house and broken her leg! For crying out loud, the one fear I had was she would have an accident or become ill abroad, with no family around. Now she has to stay out there until the end of March. She is being brave and making jokes about it but she must be in pain and lonely. It is very frustrating, not being able to rush to her side. I worry she might get complications. I just cannot afford the fare to go over there, even if I could overcome my fear of flying. I must put my faith in the health care she is receiving and hope for the best, Pen.
