is it really wednesday?

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.

Be well

Sending big wishes from Ohio. If you get enough positive energy from all over the country, it should work. Hope so.
