belle_chantelle It has been just over 24 hours since I got the news that my lovely grandma suddenly passed away. For those who don't know me in person, my grandma was one of the 4 pillars supporting the foundation of my being. I have thousands of happy memories with her and grandpa, and in the past day it feels like each memory has crawled from the recesses of my brain to remind me of who I have lost. Walking is hard, sitting is hard, sleeping is hard, eating is impossible, packing a suitcase of black clothing - a color she hated seeing me wear - is almost futile. All I can think of was the physical distance between us. I didn't get to hold her hand one last time, and tell her how much I loved her. Life has such a peculiar way of pulling the rug out from under you. But now it's time to fly home, and mourn with the people who loved her just as fiercely as I did. #reallife 2w
  •   ali.blackman So incredibly sorry for your loss. I lost my grandma during my first year of medical school and it was devastating. It's hard to think about all the memories, at first because the feeling of loss can be overwhelming, but the beautiful times you shared with her will also make you smile through your tears. Hoping you find peace and comfort in the days ahead 2w

belle_chantelle Happy Mother's Day to all the mom's out there! I'm so excited to be taking another one of these graduation photos with my momma in a couple weeks. She makes up 1/2 of the best support system I had to help me get through medical school with my sanity. I don't know what kind of deal with the devil my past self made, but I definitely hit the parental jackpot in my lifetime. I think my mom & dad are two of the best humans out there, and I'm grateful everyday to have them. Today is bittersweet for me, because it's the 5th year in a row I haven't been home for Mother's Day. For those of you lucky enough to live close to your family, give them a big hug and tell them how much you love them today. And a few extra kisses for mommy! #mothersday #medicalschool #graduation 3w
