Predictive text in the T9 on my cell phone seems to tell a lot about my life. When I hit 1 twice, it writes either a happy or a sad face, depending on which I’ve used more recently.

This week, it’s been predicting a <3.

My best friend, Fae, was in a pretty bad car accident on Sunday night with her boyfriend, and they both had to have major surgery. She’s been in the hospital since.

Being a heartbreaking 862 kilometers away means that all I can do is text her and keep telling her how much I love her. Words are not enough. I feel helpless and useless. She’s miserable and in pain in a hospital bed in Pittsburgh and all I can text her is <3.

Last night, I kept my cell phone clutched in my hand all night so that when she woke up in the hospital, alone and unable to sleep, I could text her back. This morning she was moved to the ICU because they think she might have clots in her lungs and need to do xrays.

I need my girl to be all right.

Me and my Faebala<3

    Oh no, not Fae! That’s so scary, I really hope she is OK. I send my best wishes in both of your directions.

    Hey Heather, I know I’m really late on this but sending hugs and well wishes from across the pond. Hope your friend is recovering well.

    I stumbled upon this post randomly and it just made me almost cry. <3

    This is one of those things I saw in the hospital, but my brain was too drugged up I promptly forgot about it after. Sometimes I still stumble across messages like that. Love you.
