We’ve been very much out of our regular routine at work and home due to an illness in our family. The dogs couldn’t believe it when David left late Sunday afternoon to spend another night in his mother’s hospital room.

My mother-in-law is much improved, but will be staying in the hospital’s extended care area for a while.

We’re wading into whatever the new normal will be for us now. What passed as routine for us 10 days ago is gone forever.

    McKinsey’s mother-in-law died, a loss for all of us, as Mary Ann was a wonderfully loving person.
