It's been a very difficult week

My family has had a difficult week.

To start the week I received a phone call from my cousin, Cheryl. Her mom was out for the day with her, and her mom collapsed in the car. 911 was called, CPR given, but Carolyn has remained in a coma and on a ventilator. After an EEG the news was bad..occasional seizure activity, but no brain activity. Now, my 3 cousins face the difficult decision of when to take their mother off of life support. My cousins lost their dad 2 1/2 years ago. Please keep them in your prayers as they go thru this very difficult time.

Update...3.29.2012..this afternoon Carolyn was taken off of life support, and then passed away a short time later. I will miss her.

Like the old saying goes...When it rains it pours..my mom also was dealing with some health issues this week, and so I've been over to my parents house everyday. Then yesterday morning I had a health scare. I called the doctor's office as soon as it opened and was seen shortly after. I think everything will be okay.

My son's girlfriend wrote on Facebook this morning....

"When life is a bitter pill to swallow, You gotta hold on to what you believe
Believe that the sun will shine tomorrow

I find those words comforting.
