How we found out about my mom’s TIA:
My sister Miriam was having problems with her brand new Kindle Fire. She had downloaded a game that amid downloading she realized she didn’t want, but then couldn’t figure out how to remove it. Since Sara, our eldest (She’s gonna love that word.) sister, also has a Kindle Fire, Miriam called her to ask for help. No one answered. She called our niece Andrea–no answer. Finally, Sara’s oldest daughter Ashley who is college age answered the phone.
My sister Miriam went into great detail describing her problem with the Kindle Fire. Finally, Ashley said that she was very sorry but she could not help. She told Miriam she’d have to talk to her mom. She was sure her mom could help.
“I tried calling your mom, but couldn’t get a hold of her,” Miriam said.
“Oh yes, she’s not home right now.”
“Well, do you know what time she will be back?”
“No, I’m not sure.”
“Well, where is she?” my sister finally asked thinking it was unusual that they weren’t home that late in the evening.
“Oh Grandpa called and said Grandma was having a stroke, so they called an ambulance, and they are all at the hospital.”
