My 6-year-old grand-niece was life-flighted to the hospital last night with sudden seizures. As of this morning, she is still intubated and sedated, and they don't have any answers as to what's going on. My niece, who herself spent three days in the hospital last week with some terrible rash all over her lower body and chest pains, has been there all night. Her husband and their two little boys are doing Christmas together, but I know their hearts can't be in it.
My poor sister has endured both her daughter and grand-daughter being hospitalized in the last week, our stepdad, to whom she was closest among us, dying, and caring for Mom, who has to be taken on a 130 mile round trip three days a week for dialysis. It's been a hard year for me, but an even harder one for her.
