Well, my plans for going back to Illinois to get my stuff took a turn on Friday when Grandma (of the family I am very close friends with here) had a massive stroke. She’s in the ICU and is not expected to recover. Of course this means that we cannot leave.
Please keep Grandma and the family in your thoughts and prayers. This is really hard. It was very sudden- she was just fine when some of us saw her on Thursday, and then on Friday she had the stroke.
EDIT: Grandma passed away at 3:15 this morning. Please pray for us.
