Just a quick note to bring regular readers up to date since I haven’t been writing my blog this week. Mike and I had a wonderful getaway last week to the Shaw Festival and then to the Stratford Shakespearean Festival to celebrate Mike’s 60th.
We arrived home about 1pm Thursday to a message from Mike’s sister. His Dad, who had been in the hospital, but expecting to be discharged any day, had died about 11am that morning. He had been suffering heart problems for years… 3 bypasses, etc. but always seemed to bounce back, so it was a bit of a shock. The funeral was Monday morning.
Along with all of this, we learned on Friday afternoon that my Mum had been given a place in a nursing home in Deseronto. It all happened much faster than I expected… there was a bed available right then. Elizabeth and I quickly checked it out and accepted the placement. Mum went in on Monday afternoon.
Needless to say, we have all been very busy and stressed for the last number of days. But it is good to be able to count on the support and love of family and friends at times like these.
