I heard from my mother that one of my relatives, who is 86 years old, had broken her spine.
母から親戚の一人、86歳が脊髄を骨折したと聞いた。

She lives with her husband, but when my mother called him, she didn't get enough information because he is too old. (He has difficulties hearing.)
彼女は夫と住んでいて、母は電話したが、十分な情報が得られなかった。彼はとても年をとっているので。(耳が不自由)

Since the couple has a daugher who lives nearby, my mother aked me to get in touch with her.
夫婦は娘が居るので、母は彼女に連絡をとってくれと私に頼んだ。

Her daugher and I played a lot when we were children, but now we are just Facebook "friend".
彼女と私は子供の頃、よく遊んだが、今はただのフェイスブック上4の友人だ。

I sent her a message through Facebook.
フェイスブック経由でメッセージを送った。

She replied to me that her mother is hospitalized, but she is fine and to be honest it bothers her if I and other relatives worry too much.
彼女は母は入院してるが、元気だ。でも正直に言うと、私や他の親戚が心配しすぎるのは迷惑だと返信してきた。

I was shocked because my mother and I just wanted to know the situation.
ショックだった。母と私は状況を知りたかっただけなのに。

The daugher is running her own business, so she must be busy and she doesn't like to be disrupted by things that has nothting to do with his business.
その娘は会社を経営しており、忙しくて、仕事以外の事で邪魔されるのが嫌なのだ。

I realized again environment changes people.
改めて、環境は人を変えると実感した。
