    So, my Family Day here is ending with a member of my family spending the night in the Red Zone of the Emergency Dept of our local hospital. It’s my mom and, for starters, she seems alright but they are keeping her in for testing. Apparently she passed out briefly while at the dining table (at my sister’s), and was a bit less than coherent when they noticed and tried to get a response from her. 911 was called and she was ‘okay’, if weak, by the time they arrived. She chatted up a storm with me when I made it to the Red Zone, so I’m hopeful. She was supposed to be going home, then they changed their minds and decided to keep her over night to continue their tests. What was weird though was that after the doctor told me about the overnight stay, he came back to me a few minutes later to ask about whether or not they should resuscitate if her heart/whatever stopped working during the night. smh Quite odd, IMO.

      Ah VC, so sorry about your Mom’s ordeal, you must be worn out after the experience. I’d guess the doctor’s request is just standard procedure, especially for an elderly person being kept in overnight? Wishing her the speediest of recoveries ❤️

        Standard procedure is what I am hoping, CC. Honestly, I understand why doctors always seem to make a point of advising about worse case scenarios, but I really wish they’d time their news better. Fortunately, my sisters live close by so we actually staggered our stay at the hospital which made it a bit less stressful.

        OTH, it seems like the family is heading into a rough patch. I came home and phoned sister to give her an update re mother only to have her tell me that her husband’s niece called. Her dad (47ish & sister’s brother-in-law) had a stroke, is bleeding in the brain and is currently on life support at a hospital in Vermont. Apparently they had to do surgery to release the pressure in his brain, but neither she nor her husband really understand what is going in. Ay-yi-yi yi-yi!

      VC, what a frightening day for you. I hope your mom fully recovers and can come home tomorrow as planned. I think it’s pretty routine to inquire about “living will” arrangements, but I’m sure it was worrying. Please let us know how she’s doing.

    • February 15, 2016 at 9:37 pm

      VC, I hope your mom fully recovers and that it turns out to be nothing really serious. God speed. 🙏

      Seems to be the first thing they now ask you in emergency in my world vc. Doctors, to an extent, are covering their actions by getting family views. Thus said, when my Dad was ill, the doctors told me what they were/were not going to do, regardless of the answer to their questions.

      I am known to pass out for little reason at times – relates to low BP (despite mine is usually high). Wishing your Mom 100% better in the morning & all good test results.

    • February 15, 2016 at 9:49 pm

      VC, lifting your Mom, sister’s B-i-L, and all of your family in prayer. You’re fortunate to have siblings that share the load; I had two older brothers via my father, and a younger brother via my Mom; yet, when my father was dying, and any time my Mom is ill, I’m an only child…

      So scary, vc! I hope they find out the cause and get your Mom back on her feet soon! Sending hugs to you all!

      hoping for the best for your mom and your other relative who is facing such a challenging time;

      time to hang tight as a family for mutual support

      VC, praying that all goes well with your mother.

    I was sen chuck grassley, I would not be making too much noise against scalia replacement …. instead, I would be worried that karma is fairly active against mean-spirited anti-Obama types and collecting their souls

    I’ve been watching Rachel – 1st time in years. Looking at the SCOTUS cases that are probably impacted by Scalia’s death. Bob McDonnell could be on the losing side. Had forgotten he was appealing to SCOTUS.

    Mexico indigenous people: Pope Francis asks for forgiveness

    Pope Francis has asked Mexican indigenous people in Chiapas state for forgiveness over they way they have been excluded from society.

    He made his appeal while celebrating Mass in three native languages after a new Vatican decree approved their use.

    The Pope also used the open-air service in San Cristobal de las Casas to warn about threats to the environment.

    Throughout his five-day trip he has condemned the evils of forced emigration and drugs.

    He has urged Mexico’s leaders to provide “true justice” to suffering citizens.
