Tough morning

It hasn't been a great morning around here. I woke up with tonsillitis and got an early appointment at Kaiser. I feel fine except for this whole triple chin look is so not sexy. Guess our home phone is not working and for some reason is ringing nonstop, but we're not getting any calls. I get a couple calls on the way home- 1 from Linda, which I chose to ignore, and the other from my aunt in Oklahoma. Aunt in Oklahoma was upset I could tell, but she didn't tell me why. I get home, relay to my mom that Linda and my aunt had called. Turns out Linda's husband was having a tough time and needed quick computer assistance. My mom helps him. Then my mom gets a call that her aunt had 3 falls in the past month, then the last fall proved fatal and she died this morning. I only met the woman once, but she was so sweet and sharp. My mom talks to her every Tuesday morning driving to work. Then she found out that her uncle also took a turn for the worst this morning after finding out about his sister's death. My mom feels like she has little family left she was saying- her aunt was her only remaining aunt. She has 1 more uncle besides the one who just took a turn for the worst, but they never talk. Then she is not close with her cousins and their families. Plus we don't consider my aunt in Nor Cal family. This all at a time when my mom is dealing with so much- stress at work, the whole aunt in Nor Cal/grandma issue, the house remodel, and more. I think we're headed out for lunch later with Linda and her husband to help him with his computer...

What a rough morning! Wish things were better. Hopefully a good lunch will help a little.

I hope this doesn't require surgery?

Major hugs man, and give one to your mom for me (she doesn't have to know where it came from). This has got to be really tough on her.
