Spoke with the folks last night. Mom has her third chemotherapy session today and afterward she and Pop will be leaving to drive from Florida to Indiana. Mom will have to do most of the driving because Pop can't anymore.
Why? My third brother, who is 56, had a severe stroke Tuesday night. The last time we spoke last night they'd heard that his brain was swelling and there was no way to relieve the pressure, there was no brain wave activity, and only the ventilator was keeping him alive. My second brother had called Pop to tell him that the doctor was summoning the family into the room. At this point I don't know any more than that. Also, my oldest brother (who is 60) will be having a heart cath on Monday; his doctor believes he has some blockages.
Is it disingenuous for me to say that I now know why I've had this sudden upsurge in energy? Please keep my brothers and their families in your thoughts and prayers...and Mom and Pop as they travel.
