My worst month

Oct 31, I learned that one of my teachers died. I couldn't attend his funeral.

November 8, the worst wildfire in California history destroyed the town of Paradise, CA. This was my hometown. My original house was incinerated, as were all the possessions of my family's friends. Some neighbours disappeared into the inferno and haven't been seen since.

November 14, my grandmother died. The cause was pneumonia...which developed over the past week. The likely cause is the thick, black smoke from that terrible fire which tinted the sun orange and made it toxic to even go outside. The smoke was so strong, it set off all the fire alarms in my house after leaving one window open for 2 hours.

November's only half over, I am praying it doesn't get any worse than this. Because while 2018 was already pretty somber, November has cast the longest, darkest shadow.

My dad is coughing up blood. We went last night to the store a few blocks away and he jogged across the street, and he's claiming he can't catch his breath after that. It's been 16 hours.

I feel horribly guilty although honestly, it's probably because of the smoke. He spent all of Saturday exposed to it. I'm fluctuating between feeling culpability and incredulity at such an innocuous event initiating a potential pulmonary edema.
