Re: Been a grim couple of weeksSep 5th, 2008
As for your sister-in-law, well.... I know that I'm the annoyingly optimistic one, the one who's always looking at the worst in the world and hunting for the silver lining, so please, try not to be too annoyed if you disagree. But, just because she won't be the same doesn't mean that she won't still be incredible. We all have different facets to our minds, we all have different things to offer in life. What was most prevalent in her as far as what she put forward, and what she had to offer, may have changed, but that just means you may get to discover something new.
My sister-in-law: no news, really, except that she no longer seems distressed by visitors, so the 10-minute limit has been removed. She's in a lot better condition than she was a couple of weeks ago, but realistically, the chances of anyone coming back from a major haemorrhagic stroke without significant physical or cognitive impairment are pretty small. Hope springs eternal, but the odds are heavily against her. There just ain't no justice; why this most excellent woman, when there are so many knuckle-dragging mouth breathers around that nothing bad happens to? Or maybe it does and they're too dumb to notice it. But as my other favourite sister says, take care of your own business and don't expect peace or justice, just be grateful when you get them.
