I am pretty sure that today has provided me with absolute proof that life is not fair. Tomorrow, we will be scattering the ashes of my mother-in-law who lost her battle with cancer last week. That alone has gotten 2011 off to a pretty bad start. It got worse today.
This morning at around 6 a.m., I was playing games on my phone when a voice mail message from my mom popped up. That is 5 a.m. for my mom, so not good. The message was all static. When I called my mom back, I couldn't understand a thing she was saying. I then called my sister's cell phone and she was already on her way to my mom's house and had called an ambulance cause she couldn't move. We now know this is because she has had a stroke.
It doesn't appear to be life threatening. But she cannot move the right side of her body and they don't know if the movement will come back or not. According to my sister, the CT scan showed a small stroke but the doctor seems to think something bigger is being hidden. I don't like the sound of that. I wish I was closer, but I am going out next week.
In my perfect world, my mom would not have had a stroke and David's mom would not have died last week. Period. But I realize that this life is not perfect. I don't expect it to be. However, I do think it should be a little more fair than to have my mom have a stroke the day before we have a funeral for David's mom. That is just a little too unfair.
