Friday last my mother called, my 96 year grandmother was in the hospital with a broken arm and a heart attack. So she needs to go to a rehabilitation facility for who knows how long. Finding one wth an open bed is turning in to quite a chore.
Then when I got home from work the Missus and the kids were waiting at the door for me, seems my mother 73 had congestive heart failure and was also in the hospital. She is doing well so far but nothing is known for sure until all the data is intrpreted. They are talking about sugery to repair a damaged aorta.
My father is kind of lost never having dealt with anything like this and I don't think him and my mother have been apart over night for 30 years. Looks like a lot of worry prayer and commuting for the next few weeks. I just feel blessed to still have them all.
I have to git on my son and Dil to get my grankids down to see grandma. They don't seem to realize the severity of my grandmother. She has been asking for them. My grandkids aren't real close with my grandmother and aren't old enough 9 and 11 to realize how rare it is to actually have a gg grandmother let alone a great grand mother still living.

Hey Pitch, There are times like that, and it all comes at once to shaken off the ground under your feet.

Take care of your self, it looks like you're in for some crazy days. I've been there, too. I'll get better.
