Somebody always has it worse
As we were commiserating about how Steph's day went (see previous posts) we were immediately reminded that our problems are small in comparison and there is always someone who has it worse. We got word that Steph's uncle in Missouri was in the hospital having trouble speaking and losing strength on one side of his body. Turns out he had slipped on ice and hit his head last week - he did see the doctor and it was diagnosed as a concussion. Then Sunday and Monday more serious neurological problems began to present themselves and Monday he ended up in the ER then admitted for tests and observation - possibilities seem grim. So as uncle and aunt are at the hospital trying to get answers, my wife's 3 cousins are home alone bracing for what is being billed as the worst storm of the century - state of emergency pre-emptively declared, schools pre-emptively closed for the whole week, everyone stay inside. etc. Yeah, things are going good for us.
