As I walk down the wide hall of Christchurch Hospital, quiet murmuring coming from most of the rooms, I make a turn, I hear muffled sobbing as a woman leans onto a very pale old man. I walk into my great Grandma’s room, I hear a slow steady beeping noise, I ask Mum and Dad how she is.

“ Breathing, but unstable,” said Dad

“You want anything to eat?” I replied

“No, we’ll be just fine”…

I got back from the food court, I hear even slower beeping and then a running  “beeeeeeeeeeeeeeep”

 Then everything stopped and Mum burst into tears.
