Impatient Patient Log

Impatient even now, past 95,
she seeks a speedy fix for any ill.
She’s been this way as long as I’m alive –
task-oriented with a stubborn will.
Each fall she takes she’ll bruise and bleed, but still
she lives and mends in months, to our surprise.
She’s slowing slowly on her roll downhill
but healing – even kidneys and (now) eyes.
