My great grandmother and I were identical despite the years apart. The few pictures held in treasure boxes throughout her attic confirmed it. That was where the similarities ended, I’m afraid, but I didn’t find that out till years later.
It seems that my grandmother has been quite on the decline since her original diagnosis of congestive heart failure. There is not a lot of info passed to me from my mother, she doesn’t tend to talk about people other than herself. I did however hear today that she was in the hospital for quite a long while last month due to a new degenerative disc condition they’ve found along her neck.
We once again have a matching diagnosis, though mine seem to have been found sooner than hers. I have more time to correct or adapt to mine…
Makes me wonder what else we might have in common that I haven’t been told about.
I am wondering a lot about the secrets everyone keeps.
