Thanks, friends

Thanks to everyone who has posted comments or emailed me to show support for me during this difficult time. Mom has slipped into late stage Alzheimer's, and it is unclear how much longer she'll be with us. I drove down to be with her and Dad Sunday and returned last night.

Mom is comfortable, resting in a newly rented hospital bed, and I just got good news that she walked today! She injured herself last week, and in resting and recovering from that, she stopped walking and her appetite diminished, hence the need for a hospital bed. She's still eating--sometimes feeding herself, sometimes not. Because she cannot communicate well, it's difficult to assess some of her problems.

She's in the best place she can be--with Dad, under his watchful eye and good care. And she gets the occasional visit from one of her wandering six kids.

I'm catching up on some promised freelance stuff and home stuff. I'll be in and out; on and off. Thanks, again.

Dear Nancy:

I do not know you nor your family, but I have been touched by the warm humor and wry wit of your posts for some time. There are no words to help during times like this, but I would like to say that many, many people (near and far) wish you and your family nothing but peace and happiness.

Me among them.
