It has been a long couple of months.
My mom had a stroke yesterday. We were on our way to Minnesota for a quick visit. We haven't seen Trinity since the baby dedication, and she was excited and happy to be going. Instead she spent most of the night in the ER and then was transported back to a hospital near home.
Thankfully, she was seated in the car, so no fall or serious injury otherwise, as happened last time. This one is significant. She understands what we say to her, and she nods yes or no, but she cannot move her right side, has significant facial droop, and she, so far, can't swallow. She tries to talk but can't and that is distressing to her. I expect that she will be in the hospital for a few days and then probably will go to the nursing home. We'll see.
