Holy crap

Ya know, I really do intend to talk about important things like TV... that pesky real life thing just keeps getting in the way.

Grandma is doing fine. She is currently in Granny Boot Camp (aka a rehab facility) and should be able to move home in another month or so.

One of my mother's friends has a bookkeeping company, staffed by Mom's best friend and another lady I have known for years. It is currently Tax Season in Canadaland and they were getting too busy and stressed, so I found myself with a part time job (some day I may discuss how this all came about because everyone in my family loves to run my life, but hey, they mean well and this is sooooo not about me, as you will discover in the next paragraph).

Tuesday was my first day of work. My new boss had a stroke 10 minutes after she pulled up a chair and began training me.

No, I am not kidding.

She is still in hospital. It is too early to say what her long-term prognosis is, but I think that she will do well (using my experience with my dad as a guide). I certainly hope and pray that is the case!

Last week another family friend had to be flown home from Florida for emergency back surgery. She had a staph infection that had infected her spinal cord and is now paralysed from the waist down.

Last night yet another family friend died unexpectedly in his sleep at the age of 67.

It is unbelieveable.... everyone in town is just stunned.

Seems like an awful lot of tragedy for a small town in a short time period. I imagine that tragedy occurs in similar numbers every day everywhere. I wonder if one just notices it more when you live in a small town? When you know everyone you are far more likely to be connected to someone who is ill or going through hard times.
