I was just informed today by my cousin Alan that our Uncle Bob, my late mom's 81 year old brother, has had a massive stroke, and has pneumonia as well. I saw him in July and he was looking a little feeble then. He's in pretty bad shape from the sound of it.
My Uncle Justin, who is mom and Uncle Bob's oldest sibling, and my cousin Alan's dad, is 85 and rolling along nicely.
I'd appreciate a few kind thoughts and choice prayers for Uncle Bob. Thanks!

Prayers sent Dave. One of the toughest things I've had to deal with in my life is watching my family getting elderly, and trying to raise kids at the same time. I guess that's what happens when you are born late to your parents.

Thanks, folks. Uncle Bob is a cancer survivor. He had a cancerous kidney removed maybe 18 years ago. Like me, he has two daughters, my cousins Jenny and Susan. Susan has been doing most of the looking after of Uncle Bob and Aunt Ellen as Jenny lives in Milwaukee, WI now. They are great people, all of them. Uncle Bob was pretty broken up when my mom died nearly five ago. I grew up very close to my mom's side of the family. I've been dreading receiving these phone calls. My uncles were 9 and 13 when my mom came along, and then I have an Aunt Susie, mom's younger sister, who just turned 70. It is hard to see everyone getting up there in age and having health crisis'. That's life, though.

My cousin Alan called again this morning and said Uncle Bob has taken a turn for the worse. He's thinking one or two days, tops. Sounds like the pneumonia is taking him down....
