Prompt for the Day: “Modern Families”

The curious writers from the Daily Post group of Word Press chose “Modern Families” as the writing prompt for today’s creations.  They asked one single question-“If one of your late ancestors were to come back from the dead and join you for dinner, what things about your family would this person find the most shocking?”

My Dead Relatives

From my mother’s side of the family includes a native American Black Foot Indian.  She would be shocked at the amount of relatively fresh food available for our consumption.  My great-grandma Jones would be amazed at the current new treatments for the disease that she died from (was undiagnosed because they did not know what multiple sclerosis was during her lifetime).  Probably would also be amazed at the huge amount of prepackaged food selections on the table to eat.

From my father’s side of the family, they would have been shocked at the number of female descendants that were eventually produced!  For some strange reason, I was the first female child in generations!  After my generation, females are more common.  My father’s side of the family tended to eat gluttonously.  So there would have to be plenty of food on the table to satisfy them.

Please Help Fight this Evil Disease

The medicine my neurologist has me on for my multiple sclerosis is called Tysabri. Trying to find the actual cost on the internet is impossible. I remember when I first started on the drug the amount the facility tried charging me was well over $2500. There was no way my husband and I could afford that every 28 days! Biogen (the manufacturing drug company) has been helping us with some of the cost of the drug, but will not continue helping indefinitely. So I have started a Go Fund Me campaign.

All help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your generosity!
