As a bit of backstory: my grandmother Mam-ma is very sick, and has been having a series of health problems. My Aunt Sandy, who has been disabled for years and years and is not in great health, has been taking care of her. Clearly – this is weighing on my mind, waking and sleeping….
Last night, my dream began with going to see Mam-ma. She was very, very thin and was so small that I could pick her up. I had carried her to her chair*, and she was mostly just a head and torso, her legs and arms were so thin.
There were a number of people at Mam-ma and Sandy’s house. (This was their old house on Kentwood Street.) I wanted to take a shower, but there were lots of people around the room in which I was going to shower, so Aunt Sandy said I could use her bathroom. Now, Sandy’s bathroom was very small in real life, and it didn’t actually have a shower in it – it was a half bath with a toilet and a sink. In this dream, however, Sandy’s room didn’t have a bed at all*. It had a chair, two showers, and a big pink bathtub that was very notable.
Before I took my shower, I was looking for clothes to wear. I had a blue sweater, and I was looking for a dark blue shirt to wear with it. I was having a hard time finding one, and was getting frustrated.
At some point – I think in Sandy’s room – there was a girl there who was friends with my friend Kathy J. She was looking for something I think. Later (in another dream? later in this dream?) I saw her, and she had what she was looking for – it was a toolbox full of video games. Her appearance looked different once she had found this toolbox, and I remember thinking how odd it was that having that could have made such a difference.
*The rest of the story? While this may be a bit of a stretch, it could also be a bit of synchronicity. Later in the day following the dream, I called and talked to Aunt Sandy to get an update on Mam-ma’s condition. Last night, she was lying in bed and having trouble breathing. She was in a lot of pain, and Sandy had to help her move to her chair where she is sleeping. She is not very comfortable, and wants to be in her bed lying down, but is spending all of her time in a chair for the moment.
