My neighbor down the hall, Ann S. just called to tell me that Ron, the husband of my other neighbor, Ann, was just transported to the hospital.  His heart stopped and he stopped breathing.  Apparently they got both going again before they left for the hospital.

Ann S used every euphemism in the book to avoid saying he was dying and was on his way to broccoli land just waiting for the plug to be pulled.

Ann S and her husband, Bradley moved into the building about the same time as Ann and Ron - all about a year after I did.  The four of them all live down at the other end of this hall across from each other. They are pretty tight.  And all about the same age (70ish). Bradley and Ron have both been on the edge of frail for a while now with Ron winning (?) the frailest badge.

In other words, this is not a huge shock but still.  Ann's not ready to be on her own. At all. They have one son who is barely able to take care of himself and nearly no other relatives.

I'm glad Ann S is on the case. I asked her to keep me in the loop. I got no clue what I could do but, hopefully, she will let me know if there is anything.

I just finished watching The Normal Heart.  Excellent movie and it makes me so grateful that we're on the other side of that horrible time (early 80's of the AIDS crisis) but still really hard to watch.  Lots of great actors in it all of whom did a stunning job. But still necessary to have a box of tissues at hand.

It's not exactly rainbows and unicorns around here this afternoon.  Plus we still have the Mariner game/loss to go.
