Waiting for word on my sister's condition. She had a stroke last night. She was alert and talking, but she has bleeding in her brain from an aneurysm and was in a lot of pain. She is in surgery right now. According to the doctor this type of case "doesn't usually end well."

Barbara,
I'm praying for both you and your sister as well as the doctors and medical staff taking care of her.

I have spent the past hour trying to get my granddaughter calmed down. Her father died this morning from complications from diabetes. The hospital called her to come to the hospital to identify him. She is a divorced single mother of three small children and certainly hasn't the money to bury him. No insurance. She has been trying to get in touch with his brothers and other family members. No one is home. What a mess.
The hospital wants to know what to do with the body. She doesn't have an answer for them.

Does it ever end? I have to get dressed and go to my daughter's home. I want just an hour of calm right now.

Oh no, Addie. Thoughts are with you and your granddaughter. What an awful week for you and your family.
