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 glad to hear things are looking good for your mom, and hope she's able to be home and comfortable soon. *sends good thoughts*

aging is hard, and major memory loss painful for everyone. I'm sure your father-in-law's family and friends are coping, and helping him cope, and hope you all take care of yourselves as well as him.
