Mom was unable to visit her brother because of a work engagement.
She had several meetings lined up as the CEO of her company, and there was no way she could reschedule them.
Unfortunately, this meant that she could not visit her brother, Malcolm, at the hospice. Uncle Malcolm was diagnosed with colon cancer and was receiving treatment at a specialized facility. Fortunately, the cancer was caught early, and there were all great indications that he would beat it. He was also very positive about it and followed through with every treatment suggested by his caregivers. This made the entire family proud of him. This particular weekend, mom decided to send me to visit him on her behalf. On reaching the hospice, I was ushered into my uncle’s room, and I was glad to see he was in good spirits despite his pain. We discussed the potential pain management strategies, and he mentioned that his doctor had suggested medical marijuana, but he was not sure about it. I confirmed that we had learned about medical cannabis at school and that I was sure it would help him. His concern was about the law, which I helped him understand. Our state allowed the use of cannabis products under special regulations. We had to call the doctor about medical marijuana regulations, and he assured us that they were listed as one of the facilities allowed to use these products medically. He even gave me a card to use at the CBD dispensary that he sent me to get the products for uncle Malcolm. After a few days of using the medical cannabis from the CBD store, uncle Malcolm called me to report that he was no longer in too much pain as before.
