It rain last week you know, murky and wet all week. This week the sun shined through, and still does right now. A bitter irony considering what happened on Mother’s Day. We had a little get together on my Aunt’s place, just family, three generations worth. Kids played underfoot, parents talked about the weather, grandma sat by the TV.

Then night fell, and nearly took my mother with me.
A stroke, a possible blood clot on the right side of the brain. Left her left side paralyzed from the face down. Spent a hellish night in the Emergency room. She is recuperating, slowly, although we still don’t know exactly what happened. No relapse so far, but I just know that this is going to be a hard year for all of us. Therapy, hard work and the stress of seeing death stalking those you care about.
Happy tidings, eh?
