Refuah Shlemah

Update: Esther had a heart attack and acute bronchitis but is doing much better now. We were able to see her and she is almost back to her usual self. We are continuing to pray for a complete and speedy recovery for her and thank each and every one of you for your words of support and prayers.

We got a phone call yesterday that PHD's mom was brought to the hospital. She is in ICU and we don' t have all the details yet. All we know is that she is having trouble breathing.

This morning LO asked me if Grandma Esther will be ok. I didn't have the heart to lie to her. Afterall, Esther is 92 years old. I explained to LO that we could only pray for her and that it was up to G-d. The tears that welled up in her eyes broke my heart.

Please daven for Esther bat Baila.

G-d forbid you need this advice, but if it comes to it I want you to know what help me break the news to my (then) 6yr old when my husband passed away. Every day we say "Modeh Ani" and thank HaShem for returning our souls to our bodies. She knows this. When she woke up that morning (he died during the night), we said Modeh Ani, and then I explained to her that HaShem chose this day to keep Daddy in Heaven. You have my love and prayers.
