My MIL passed away this evening at 9.21 Eastern Time

Well she hung on until all her 4 of her sons could get to the hospital and say goodbye. (The last one came in from Calgary). And at 9.21 PM this evening my mother-in-law slipped away from the bonds of this earth.

Hubby called me 10 minutes later. I am sorry I couldn't be there to say goodbye, but hospital requirements mean that I must stay home and manage her youngest grandson. Today is exactly 13 days after my operation.

Had all my staples taken out today by the family doctor.

Holding on to say goodbye. It certainly says something about the human spirit and of love.

A blessing as well as a sadness.

You really have had to deal with a lot in short period of time, haven't you? My condolences go out to you and your husband and extended family. Hope there is more positive news to report in the near future.
