The paramedics determined that it was not a stroke but he needed to go to the ER for some tests. Several hours later he was released and is fine.
In the middle of this my daughter calls to tell me that my granddaughter can see out of her left eye. They are covering that eye with a patch so she will have to use her right eye.
The day was emotionally draining.
I just got off the phone with one of my mentors who lost his wife a couple of months ago. He was sharing some of the things he is learning as he deals with the loss of his wife.
I am learning that life is hard. It is hard to see one’s parent struggle, knowing that there is absolutely nothing that one can do. I do not know the formula I can attempt to solve that will give sight to my granddaughter and comfort to my daughter and her husband. I have no words to ease the pain of one who has lost the love of his life.
All I have is prayer.
I am not good at it.
It has to be enough.
