... what's not to love about being here?
I'll tell you what ... it's being here, feeling so helpless while DD and her family are going through an incredibly hard time right now. Sunday morning they got a call that DSIL's mom (who was in Chattanooga visiting DSIL's sister) had been admitted to the hospital, suffering a massive heart attack. DD and her family packed up, stopped by to pick up DSIL's dad who was at home in Illinois, and headed for Chattanooga. His mom, who was given only a 30% chance of surviving the surgery, came through better than they'd expected and is recovering ... just so very slowly and not without some complications. She's off all sedatives but is still not responding as they would like, she's running a fever, and they're still trying to determine if there's any kidney damage (her kidney function was way off when she was admitted but some has been recovered).
Yesterday afternoon DD took the kiddos to the park ... where T#2 broke her wrist.
I feel so helpless and my heart is so heavy for all they're going through ... it's hard for me to enjoy our time here as much as I'd like. I know that even if we could be there in Chattanooga with them, we'd still be just as helpless to "fix" things for them, even though that's what this Mama's heart wants to do.
What we can do is continue to pray ... and ask if you would please join us in praying for them. Thanks!
I hope that whatever you have planned for today includes a little something that brings you joy! Have a great day!
