Adversity makes you tough

At least I hope so! We finally got Dad home after a 25 day hospital stay, only to get a call from my sister-in-law that my brother is undergoing emergency open heart surgery tomorrow.

Wow, if I ever get any extra money, I will invest in hospital stock. My family alone should own Shoshone Medical Center after the past two years. My brother's surgery will be in Oklahoma, where he lives.



So, what have I learned from the past two months of family woes? I love each day! I wake up excited to be alive, and I vow each day to laugh, and laugh, and live.

Thanks MT, and GF. Been quite a year. My older sister in Texas had two brain aneurysm surgeries this summer, also. My younger sister in Seattle called me yesterday and said"is this family cursed or something" I told her no, we are just all getting older and are at that age for heart attacks, strokes, etc. I am really watching my diet now LOL. My brother's surgery was put off until Sunday, still still waiting on that one.
