We canceled our flight for Sat and first week of our hotel. Kathie's brother had a stroke and massive heart attack Sunday and have no idea if he will pull through. It looks like if he does will be disabled(he's in his 80's). We're driving to Chicago to be there for what ever happens.

What terrible news to get just before your vacation, but I admire your sense of family duty to be there for your cuñado in his time of need. My heart goes out to Kathie and her family. Much strength to all of you.

About 6 years ago we got here Thursday and was on a plane back to Chicago on Friday because my mother passed around 2 am that Friday morning. When it comes to family and friends we have to do what is best.

I was on vacation in Zihua 4 years ago when my mom passed away and learned about it upon landing back during a connection. Never the news you want to hear. I hope he pulls through and is still doing alright. My mom had 2 strokes and lived a few years after the second.

He has been moved to the Hospice ward. At this point there is no hope. We are driving to Chicago tomorrow for further developments- can't do anything here in Ky. I cancelled our week at Villa Mercedes for we were really looking forward staying there- love that little hotel for it's hospitality and location. Now it is a wait and see about the 3 weeks at the Grand.

Just got word that the Family decided to have a Celebration of Live Saturday since there is no idea how long he will be in a coma.
We made reservations on United for Sunday with 1 stop in Houston.
I had just released our room at Mercedes- just hope they haven't rented it out- if so will be looking for another hotel close by. What a relief.

Kudos to your brother-in-law's family for taking some of the anxiety out of a very difficult and emotional situation. Good on them.

I'm sure Eduardo will be glad to hear from you. I doubt he would've re-rented the room so quickly.

Hope to catch up with you all while you're here.

I thank the world of him. I released my room early this morning and got the news. I was going to get the days he was able to rent back. Got back to him told him to hold the room. He got back and said our room was ready for Sunday. I have to say, each time we have had problems, everyone has been great and sincere. When you have problems, then you really find out the type of people dealing with.

Just now got the word from Chicago that Danny had just passed. Sad thing is his daughter just got in from LA and did not get to see her father before he passed.

I'm really sorry to hear that, Paul. Give Kathie an extra hug. At least the family had a few days to prepare themselves mentally. Much strength to everyone.
