Bad week for Parents

1. My folks were to come out here for a last night of Chanukah dinner.

My stepfather just called. Mom's in the emergency room being check for heart problems - she had pain this morning.

Her name is Batya Rochel bat Chana.

2. On a different note - last week, I gave my father-in-law a hand-knitted scarf. He loved it - put it on and didn't take it off. Last night, I spoke to my mother-in-law. He still loves the scarf. He sees it, thinks it's nice and wonders where it came from. She tells him I made it. He gets very happy. And it happens again. He has no short-term memory at all anymore. (He calls his new granddaughter "Sybil." Her name is Wynn, and we don't know who Sybil is.)

ETa: my brother called. He spoke to my mother. They're just ruling things out and she should be going home soon. Baruch HaShem.

I'm so sorry to hear this. My sympathies to your family.

My mom is in her seventies; my father-in-law is in his eighties.

My dad, however, was 67 when he died. So I know how it hurts to lose someone that early.
