I've been up in Prince Edward Island all week for work and it's been so crazy that I truly had no idea that it was Animal Wednesday. Sorry about that.
And to boot, on the way home I got an email from my brother with news that my MIL is very sick and that I should go directly to Florida with DH. So we are leaving tomorrow early AM.
Poor MIL - she's really a wonderful mother in law - never had a tiny bit of complaint about her, she's stoic and always game to do something. She's had a tough time, lost a newborn baby way back in the 50's; lost her husband in the late 60's and her daughter and one sister about 4 years ago. Moved to Florida from Washington to make it more convenient for us to visit her and to enjoy my family and make her own new friends. This is a bad thing she has, aortic aneurysm, and emergency surgery is the only treatment. We are worried, and tense. We are hoping for the best and all prayers are appreciated.
