i'm leaving tomorrow morning with my parents and sister to go to cousin matt's wedding near eugene, oregon. one of the biggest reasons my sister and i wanted to go was to see aunt june (my mother's mother's sister). i haven't seen her for about 3 years since just before they took her to move into an assisted living residence in fargo. she has alzheimers.
so it would be a bit of a bittersweet visit. "yea...we get to see aunt june! oh...this is likely our last visit with aunt june." i love that little lady.
then i got this in an email from my mother this morning:
"I think one of the reasons Dad was trying to get in touch with you was to let you know that Aunt June won't be going to the wedding. She broke her foot last week and travel would not be easy at all for her."
i don't know how/when i'm going to manage to get to fargo soon. and i know her disease is already progressing.
i'm obviously sad about this.
