Family is a Sexually Transmitted Disease

My mother-in-law is in the hospital and will probably be having a triple bypass in the next 24 hours or so. She had gone in for a angiogram and the blockage etc. they saw was cause for considerable concern.

It goes without saying (doesn't it? I hope.) that even though this woman has driven me crazy over the years... she's... you know... family. She raised the man I chose to spend my life with. Damn, this family stuff is hard sometimes.

(The title is someting an aunt of mine used to say.)

And it's a good saying. I hope your grandmother comes through with flying colors.

Yes, it is a sexually transmitted and also fatal disease! I heard a comic say that once and I both giggled and cringed.

You are right, it is hard. I will say prayers in my way for you gma and family...Keep breathing and thinking the good thoughts. I'm here if you want to vent.

My mother-in-law -- the kids' grandma.

Not much news today. More tests, surgery may be Thursday.

I must remember that saying.
I hope your mother-in-law does well.
