Missing....

Just to let you know, I will not be around here much in the next days. Tonight we took #2 SIL to the ER. She & Bro #2 had both been sick with some kind of bad bug that last about a month, and she was improving...we thought. Today had a fever, but was feeling cold all day, with a really bad headache. About 5pm, got a call, would I take to the ER..So I knew she was bad, as she is not one to give in and go to the dr easily.

We had a long wait, but after the dr. saw her, they were going to do some blood work, put her on IV. It was cold in the room, and both Brother & I were cold. He asked how long this would take, and did we have time to run home, get some longer pants, sleeves, and let him tend to the dog. Were told to go ahead.

Picked up DH to go back with us, as it was dark & I'm not fond of driving in the dark. When we got to the hospital, she was not where we left her, and were informed, her condition deteriorated severely & rapidly right after we left, and the staff had taken her for a Head CT.

She came back to the room shortly, followed by the doctor. She was in severe pain, threshing, incoherent and nauseated. The doctor said she has a bleed of about 1.5" in the lower left part of her brain, and they were calling to get a neurologist to be available at one of our bigger teaching hospitals. In about 30 minutes she was transported by ambulance, which we tried to follow but it runs red lights!

We get there, and see the ambulance leaving, but when we checked in at  the ER, they had no record, said ambulance still enroute. That was my first warning vibe, since we all recognized the transporting ambulance leaving the parking lot.

Anyway, the first doctor had said call her children, so we knew it wasn't good. Plus he was quite frank with me when I asked about her chances. The nurse at the bigger hospital told us her condition had deteriorated again rapidly and severely during the trip, so they immediately rushed her for another CT scan, and discovered a 2nd, and bigger bleed, which was filling up a ventricle. Not much hope of recovery and even if by a miracle she did, the damage incurred is irreversible.

SO...for the next week or so, I will not be around. I ask for your prayers if you feel you can say some for us.Two of their kids are here, but 2 have to travel from afar. Her name is Peggy, and she is a blessed and sweet lady. Sometimes very stubborn, but we all love her dearly. Right now, we're asking that if it is God's will that we have to let her go, that He will give her a peaceful end with no pain or fear. Thank you.

Your card is an absolute delight.

I'm sorry to hear the inevitable news and glad that your brother has the support of his family. Your trip sounds wonderful and I do understand you wouldn't want to meet up with the men in tow, asking how long you are going to be LOL. I'm so glad you are having the trip I know you have wanted a long time and have decided to take. IF, you are in Wales and decide you would want to meet, give me a shout.
Take care my friend and my thoughts and prayers are with you.
