I'm Back From Vacation

have some good news and some bad news.

The good news is that we had a wonderful vacation.

The bad news is that we were alerted that my mother-in-law was rushed to the hospital yesterday afternoon. We were still traveling home and there was no way we could drive straight thru. Joey's mom had a ruptured aneurysm. She went from our local hospital and was transferred to Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia.

When we finally made it home to NJ this afternoon we dropped off our dog and our luggage and drove to the hospital. My mother-in-law was combative and confused. She thought the year was 1975, however she remembered everyone's name including one of her dogs. Basically, the little bit of blood that did end up in her brain caused pressure, so they are drilling a hole in her head and draining fluid to relieve the pressure.

Please pray for her. She was very lucky she did not die according to the Doctors and all though things look good, she is not completely out of danger. She will be in the hospital for a couple of weeks at least.

Welcome home! Still, what a sad thing to come home to. Good thoughts and wishes for your MIL. Sounds like considering everything she was lucky.
