I am still here
I just wanted to check in and let everyone know that we are still alive and here. About 2 weeks ago I received a call from my mom telling me my grandmother was ill with the flue, after a few days the flue turned in a blocked intestines and a hospital stay with diagnosis that my grandmother had a stronger chance of dying then surviving. We immediately packed our bags and headed to Moncton via car to be with her. A day into our trip the diagnosis changed to a hernia pressing on her intestines causing a blockage and stopping her from being able to eat, this is operatable and after long deliberation she decided to go for the operation. (At her age there is only a 50% chance she would wake up from the anestestic let alone recover) it has now been a week and half we are in Moncton and she is looking like she is on the road to a great recovery. ( We are staying hopefull ) We were suppose to leave this morning however Moncton has been blanketed with an Easter snow storm, I guess we were ment to have one more visit with my grandmother before leaving.
