When you're making other plans

Spending the next few days in Connecticutt. My MIL has had a sudden heart attack. As far as can be determined she had 3 valves occluded and now fixed with stents.

She is well enough to be fractious, but will be a few days in hospital yet.

Her husband is a nice old gent who cannot make his own food or work the coffee pot.

I am to stay at least until she comes home.

I have brought books and my phone and such things. Her internet is peculiar and I don't want to count on it.

It is all made awkward. Y the fact that they don't really want me there. But I think they will need the help. Just having Simone to make sandwiches and walk the dog, and drive will help.
I have hopes of writing while I am detained. No telling. But I will stay in touch.
