Thanks very much to everyone who left encouraging comments on Friday's post. Mom's still in the hospital, still short of breath and periodically disoriented. She's now being evaluated for possible blood clots in her legs; on a more positive note, she's seen a physical therapist who's fitted her with a better back brace and also taught her to use various assistive devices for putting on socks and so forth.
She's been coherent and relatively cheerful when I've spoken to her -- at least once a day and usually twice -- but she'd really rather be home. She especially misses her beloved cats, who can neither visit nor phone.
I'm grateful for everyone's prayers, and I'm praying for all of you who also have hospitalized parents or other life challenges . . . even though, as usual, I'm being entirely too slow about answering e-mail!
