Rough Times

Things have not been going well around here for the past few days. My mother is in the ICU at the moment. While we're not really sure what happened...she now has an overwhelming infection somewhere and is quite sick. I can only go in to see her for a half an hour at a time and not around the clock. I was lucky this morning and the nurse let me sit in her room for about 5 hours. I left to meet Jeff downstairs and when we came up the "visiting hour police" was doing her job. I understand. It's just hard to go off and leave her. The doctor told me this morning that she is doing a little better. They had to put her on dialysis last night because her kidneys were not working. It's been a nightmare for my poor little mother. So, this picture is for her. It's from our trip and a place she loved. I want her to think about all the beautiful things we saw and get well. I love you, mom.

Ruth,

I just read about your dear Mother. I'm so sorry and will keep her and you in my thoughts and prayers. You are a great example to me and others of a kind, caring, and loving daughter. You're an angel Ruth. Please keep me posted on how she's doing.
