I didn’t do much commenting yesterday but I feel like I spent much of the afternoon watching Theresa. Kay is a good friend of mine; yesterday her mother had a massive stroke. Although she was in her early 80 she was active, lived alone and drove. She was on her way to the doctor for a routine visit yesterday morning when she must have felt something was wrong. She pulled in to a parking lot where someone found her slumped over the wheel and called 911.
Today while I was at the hospital Kay could not say enough about the nurses that had helped them get through the past 36 hours. She spoke of the gentleness they showed not only to her mother but to the whole family who gathered in shocked sadness. I did think of Theresa as I watched these special women. I guess none of these were actually Theresa but that’s the way I picture her. Kay’s mother passed away shortly after I left the hospital I am glad she and the family were surrounded by the love and support of the nurses.
