I spent the day at madigan army medical center as my mother in law had a stroke last night.  Her right side is affected, but she can still talk, which is great.  She was able to move her hand some today (open and close it, make a fist, that type of thing) which is fantastic as she wasn't able to do that last night.  She's having a tough time -- she's had back pain for years, and now she can't use her right arm to help her lever herself into comfortable positions, plus she can't do much with her right leg.  There will be more tests tomorrow as they evaluate the near term recovery plan, and what the prognosis looks like. We know there will be some time at a rehab facility, and we'll just take it one day at a time after that.  I'm not sure she's going to be able to live alone anymore.

Aging, man.  It can really suck.

I'm forever behind on my yuletide story, and seriously considering defaulting.  This would be my first time, and while some of it is I just can't get myself to sit in the chair and do the work, I'm also distracted by crazy stuff happening in life: the layoff, the election, dad's recalled pacemaker, and now this.  It's really a lot, you know?  I need a draft by default day for me to feel comfortable continuing, so that's the goal for the week.  We'll see what happens.  

I really hope everyone else had a much better day.
