Vacation Nightmare

September 24th, 2022 at 04:24 pm

A few days before my sister and BIL were going to leave Texas and drive to Maryland to stay with me for a few days before we all left for our family beach vacation, he had a medical problem and needed to get a pacemaker. He is fine, but they were unable to come for the vacation as he couldn't travel.

So, while this was very disappointing, the rest of us went to the beach as planned. We were having a wonderful time until on Wednesday, when my sister-in-law fell ill and had to be rushed to the hospital. She had a very serious brain bleed. This required emergency surgery. She is still in ICU, but is listed as stable. She is still sedated so we don't know the extent of any long term damage. We thought we were going to lose her so we are very grateful that she pulled through, but the road ahead will be very difficult. 

I left the beach to come home early on Thursday while I could get a ride home with my neice and her boyfriend. My brother and nephew remained at the beach so they could, of course, be with her. They had to check out today and will be coming home briefly to regroup, then head back. The hospital is about a 2.5 hour drive from where we live. 

The last few days have just been a blur. This is just devastating for us, please keep her in your thoughts and prayers. 

Thank you my on-line friends!
