It's raining, it's pouring...

Had a call yesterday from Joan telling me she was at the ER
with my mother-in-law--possible heart attack. Went to the
ER and found that things were going well. EKG normal--1st
set of tests very good but the doctor wanted to keep her overnite.

Picked her up this morning and took her home. She's feeling much
better. It's just hard for her--all of this. Gene in the hospital since
Father's Day, and now he's in a hospital 55 miles from home, his leg
sliced open from the thigh to the ankle, a wound vac running constantly.

With her foot in a cast and boot, she can't drive, and she really
doesn't need to go every day--it's too hard on her. She's an amazing
87 year old. No one ever believes that she can be that age. She's
one of the most beautiful women I've ever seen, and she continues
to grow more beautiful with each passing year.
