Six Word Saturday

My six words are:  Ed’s mother improving, our uncle died.

I know those are six very unusual words, but that is what is happening in my life now.  It will be a Thanksgiving to remember…

On Thanksgiving two of our family members were in the hospital.  My husband’s mother had suffered a pin stroke on Tuesday.  Thankfully, my mother-in-law was released in time to have Thanksgiving dinner with us,  and is improving from her pin stroke.  Sadly, our Uncle B who was very ill with double pneumonia,  passed away last evening.  He is at peace and is suffering no more, but he will be greatly missed. 

For those who haven’t read my past posts, Uncle B was my uncle– who married my husband’s aunt–which gave us a mutual aunt and uncle.  Their daughter introduced Ed and I to each other, since she was a cousin to both of us–but we didn’t know each other!  I know it sounds complicated!  Uncle B’s wife is my mother-in-law’s sister and Uncle B was my daddy’s brother….truth really is stranger than fiction!
