I don’t typically write about my family here because I know they occasionally read this site, and frankly, I don’t want to tick anyone off. Regrettably, my dad read something negative I wrote about a family trip a few years ago and was offended, so now I keep the family mentions more along the lines of: “Hey, we’re in Florida visiting my parents!” or “My sister graduated from PA school!”
This has been working just fine until recently but we use this space to let everyone know what is going on with us, and something has been going on for the last few weeks that hasn’t been mentioned here.
My mom is in the hospital. And it’s serious.
This was the reason for the last minute trip to Chicago last weekend. She’s in the CCU (critical care unit), but she’s more or less stable at the moment. I have a million facts and details swimming around in my head; suffice it to say that we are all more than a little worried. She’s only 58 years old.
I hope the next time I write about my family I will be reporting something good, happy, and positive. If it’s the kind of thing you do, please pray for us.
