My Unexpected Experience
My unexpected experience

Last month was horrible. My Dad had gotten sick. My family and I thought it was nothing but the flu because when he gets it, it always hits him harder than us kids; he is usually laid up in bed for about a week. When the week passed and he was still severely sick, we knew something was really wrong. That same day we noticed he was spitting up blood, his fever wasn 't breaking, and he could barely move. My sister Brittany and I tried to get him to go to the hospital but instead he just laid there and said, "I 'm tired; I 'll go in the morning." We made him promise he would go. But now I wish I would 've dragged him out of bed that night. The next morning my cousin and my little brother were getting ready for school. Everything seemed normal until my cousin came and woke me up saying my dad wanted me. I got up right away to find out what was going on. It turns out he was so weak he couldn 't even move from the bed. So I helped him up, got him dressed, and helped him to the kitchen to sit down until my uncle was ready to take him to the hospital. While he was sitting there he said, "Ash, if they hook me up to a machine and that 's the only thing keeping me alive, give me a chance, then pull the plug." I replied, "Stop talking like that; everything is going to be fine; I love you." By then my uncle was ready. So I told my uncle, "Let me know what is going on and Brittany and I will be up there later." He said, "Ok will do." They left, and about an hour later my sister and I received a text "Dad has pneumonia they 're holding him for at least 24hrs." When we received that text we got ready and headed up to the hospital. When we got to the hospital, we went straight back to see our dad, and he seemed fine. Since they had him hooked up to so many things such as, three different antibiotics, saline water to keep him hydrated, and they even had him on an oxygen mask to help him breathe better. He was acting so goofy

    I waited out in the cold and snow for what seemed like forever. I eventually saw our car pull up to the park. I saw my dad and my brother get out of the car and hurry towards me. When they got to me, my dad picked me up and carried me to the car. We got in and he drove me home. Then he helped me get out of the car. The pain was so bad I had to hop to the door. Once inside our house, I hopped over to the couch, and laid down.…

    It was 2009 and I had been in sixth grade for a couple of months. I was on the phone with one of my friends from school when my mom called through my door for me to come out into the living room. I ignored her and kept talking for a few minutes when she called me out again. I rolled my eyes and told my friend I would call her right back. I walked into the living room and it seemed odd to me that both my sisters and dad were all out there too. I watched my mom take a deep breath with my dad by her side. As she began to speak her voice shook and gloss covered her eyes. “The doctors found a lump in my last mammogram.” she said. “It came back as cancer. I’m going to have to get treatment but I’m going to be okay.” No one else said a word, we all…

    I'm so nervous and worried but they called us into the room to get her ready for the surgery. My little baby girl didn't know what was about to happen. My heart was falling apart to see her so small and having to experience this. They finally take her in so I tell her how much I love her and cry. After seven hours of waiting, they call me and tell me that the surgery was over and I could go in to intensive care to see her. That moment was the worst seeing her in so much pain. She passed out on me twice and doctors were so concerned of her reaction. Being there for a month wondering if she was going to make it or not is something I don't wish no one will ever have to go through. But my little angel, my warrior, fought so hard, she overcame it and we left the hospital on January 29th making our way back to El Paso,…

    I remember that October day so perfectly. I got out of class, called my Aunt Gwen for directions to the hospital he was at, and went on my way. I arrived at the hospital just as my grandpa was slowly making his way down the hallway with his oxygen and with my aunt right by his side. I look at her face and I can tell she is trying to hold back tears. My Uncle Jacky was there too which is my grandpas oldest son. After the doctors we went to Ryan’s restaurant and ate lunch, its where he always ate with my grandma when she had to go to the doctors. Now my grandpa is a big guy and watching him barely eat that day was terribly hard. I could barely look at him for I was trying to hold back all my tears with everything I had. From that day on I knew my grandpa’s life wouldn’t be the same. The doctors said they would be able to cure him, the cancer had spread to his fluids. My grandpa has been doing chemo therapy to just slow the cancer down and sadly he has to come to his last treatment.…
