My mother is married/civil unioned/life partnered to a Canadian. In Canada they routinely give an available but not approved in SA drug to people wither kind of fucked lung disease. This drug could have possibly reduced my mother’s disease from terminal to life long and manageable.


But in the years since Claudia and my mother got hitched, they never started the immigration process for my mother.

So she can’t get the drugs.

So her disease is terminal.


Which sucks


On Saturday we were talking about it and she said that the immigration process takes 33 months and ‘I will probably not be here in 33 months’


I am not sure how to hear that.

I am not sure I can.
