very late phone call

1h30 AM....phone rings. run downstairs to get it (because the phone in the bedroom has been misplaced) It's my brother-in-law calling to tell us that my father-in-law was just brought to the hospital, they think it might be a heart attack. Dave went to be with his mom and brother and i'm here at home, can't go back to sleep...

more news later.


3h00 AM Ok so i just got a call from hubby with an update. My Father-in-law had a small stroke. the docs say that everything else looks fine...for now. They'll see a stroke specialist tomorrow morning. so now Dave is driving my MIL back home and are gonna try to get a few hours of sleep before heading back to the hospital.

Boy when it rains it pours. Last week my dad got a small operation. A while back he started pissing blood, so he went to see a urologist. The did a cystoscopy and found tumors (now let's remember that doctor's use this term in reference to a mass) in his bladder. Last thursday he went in for a biopsy, they also found something funny on the prostate so took a piece of that too. We should get the results in about a month to know if they are cancerous.

Next week my parents-in-law were supposed to leave for Banff for their 40th wedding anniversary. A trip that my hubby and his brother had planned in the last 6 months. I guess all that will have to be cancelled or postponed. My FIL will have to do some physio, he has weakness on his right side. He got very lucky in his bad luck, it could've been a lot worse.

Ok i'm off to bed to try and get some sleep.

Wow... I hadn't been on your blog for a while... I'm sorry that you have to go through all this with your family. :( I hope that things get better very fast for your FIL and that there isn't any cancer in the test results.

Lots of +++++++++ vibes going your way.
