It's a sad day for my family.
The doctors amputated my aunt's leg today.
She had a cut on her toe and took it for granted. She is diabetic.
My sisters and I have been calling each other, finding solace in each other's childhood memories of our aunt.
We tear up at every mention of her name. I tear up whenever I remember her.
I can't even begin to describe the sadness, the shock, or whatever we are all feeling about this.
I told my sisters that if there's a lesson we can learn from this, it is that we must try to do things right the first time.
