My wife and I just got home the night before last after flying out of state to visit our toddler granddaughter (and her parents!). It was a wonderful visit. But yesterday we got word that my mother-in-law in California was not doing well. She had fallen two months ago and broken her pelvis, but was finally to the point that she could return to her apartment. She sounded good and upbeat on the phone when we talked to her last Friday night. Yesterday afternoon we learned that she had had a major brain hemorrhage, and was not expected to live, and she died last night, peacefully and without regaining consciousness. She had a strong Christian faith, so we can look beyond her death and have comfort and hope. Our plans are up in the air about flying out for a service. Please keep my family in your prayers. I'm not going to smoke and my quit isn't in danger, but I have to admit that, even after a year being smoke-free, the stress of this has triggered some cravings. NOPE.
