If you believe in prayer, our family could use some right now. I just received a call from one of my SIL's that my MIL is in the hospital. She had a seizure this morning. Everything in our world has come to a rushing halt. Nothing else matters but her. Before our tearful goodbye, I told my SIL that I would call and request to reschedule my interview As soon as I got off the phone with my SIL, I called and requested to do my interview tomorrow via phone (thank goodness, they had put that offer on the table in the first place) and I explained the situation. More like I rattled on and on about it and I talked about how I was so looking forward to meeting with her and seeing the gorgeous campus but I knew I needed to be here. Being that it's a faith-based school, I knew she would understand. She left me by saying to just take things one step at a time and I remarked that that is how I live my life. Okay, I'm calm now (it's been about an hour or so since I began this post). When I called my FIL, my MIL was still in the ER. Not sure if she's been admitted yet as I've been on the phone with people seeking comfort! I just got off the phone with my best friend whose been there through it all. Poor guy. I spoke with my mother as well right after I rescheduled my interview. Everything was still raw so it was a tearful conversation. My poor mom. I made her cry @ work. :( I talked to my brother too because he was expecting us this weekend and I had to tell him not to expect us just yet. All right...off to find out if the hubby has heard the news yet.
