>on tuesday night NYC time, my brother left Melbourne, Australia to fly to NYC to surprise my immediate & extended family, during a celebration of my grandpa’s 80th birthday.
on wednesday morning, my grandpa had a heart attack, called 911 and had an angioplasty and stent put in.
on wednesday afternoon, i felt it was important to let my mother know that Chris was coming, in case it shaped our family’s (now altered) plans for going to CT to see grandpa. so i told her.
by wednesday evening, grandpa was recovering in the ICU, and the entire extended family knew about Chris coming, and it was no longer a secret…..
on wednesday night, chris landed in NYC, and the world knew.
a lot can change during a trans-continental flight. 🙂
