Honestly people—if I were a novelist I couldn’t make this stuff up: last evening at bedtime we got a call from Marc’s stepmom in Chicago. She and Marc’s father have been there for a month helping out an aunt who was hospitalized and just passed away yesterday morning. Marc’s father suffered a massive heart attack late in the day and may not make it through. He has not regained consciousness and they have him in a cooling unit attempting to slow down his metabolism in an attempt to save his life. They will hope to bring him out of this in 48 hours. The next couple of days will be very long for us. We are simply stunned.
