I thought I was unprepared when my whole family got the stomach flu last week.
But we were totally unprepared for the news we got Saturday night. My husband’s grandma had an aortic aneurysm. She almost died at the local hospital, but was taken by helicopter to the regional hospital where she has had two surgeries to try to stop internal bleeding. She’s critical, but stable, now. We are all saying lots of prayers.
I always thought my husband’s family was so big. But being with them in the waiting room today, I realized what a small, strong, tight group they really are.
These unexpected things make you really think about what truly matters.
