Not how I wanted the year to start
Wednesday, January 02, 2013
On Monday, I called my mom while I was on my lunch break. She had received a call from her next oldest sister that her husband went from the hospice nurse saying maybe a month left (last Thursday) to 7 to 10 days on Monday. The nurse said she has never seen anyone go down that fast. My aunt was thinking that he would make it until their youngest son arrives at the end of the week, then pass away. She really wanted my mom to go to Minnesota. So my husband bought her a ticket leaving this Thursday, January 3 through 15th. This will be good since mom has not been able to get back there since one of her brother-in-laws died 4 years ago.
Yesterday afternoon, mom sent me a text that my uncle died at 4:30. What a way to start the new year!
