Crazy drive

We got a call that my DFIL had a stroke on Thursday so we got in the car and drove from Northern UT to Southern CA (a 12 hour drive) We got here Friday morning and I am happy to report that my FIL is doing really well. He was lucky they got the clot busters in him in time. The stroke was at the back of his head and if they hadn't broken up the stroke he would have been dead or paralysed from the neck down.

We will be back on the road headed home Monday morning after a stop at the Mecca of quilting in Southern CA, Quilt in a Day!

HUGS!
