There's been a lot going on for a while now, and today and tonight. My one sis is doing some better now, but my other sis was supposed to have heart surgery today. She was in the hospital all day today prepped but good news when they did the camera it turned out that open heart surgery was not needed. She was in recovery for several hours then released home to rest. Just after she was brought home, just down the road was a big blast and a major transformer blew and knocked out the electricity over a very large area, including both my sister's places and my place. Her son (in from out of state for her surgery) packed her up to recover for the night in a hotel with electricity. In the meantime, some of my other family (including my S.O.) were rushing to leave tonight for another state for the funeral of their close family friend that passed away here a few days ago and was transported home. They are the pallbearers and they are driving, all riding together. Just before they were to arrive here to leave for out of state is when the electricity went out (it's back on now). And there's too many households for me to take care of alone, so S.O. discussed not going to the funeral (will be gone 3 days for the turn around trip) in case things got worse around here. Just when you think they can't get any worse, as he and I were rushing around checking on the places and everyone in the pitch dark, my daughter called on her way to the ER. She's there now and probably will be all night. ER docs gave her pain meds and we're waiting to hear word back on a CT scan.
