Here We Go Again
My mother's back in the hospital after what may have been a seizure. My sister hasn't had time to give me the full details -- the first time we spoke, I only had a few minutes, and the second time we spoke, she'd just gotten back from the ER and was exhausted -- but I gather that Mom's been going downhill and that her medical condition is very complex. The hospital will keep her for at least three days so she can be released to a nursing home, where, according to my sister, "She's likely to stay."
My sister and brother-in-law have been doing a heroic job caring for her. If they can no longer do that, I completely understand. In the meantime, please pray for her and them and me.
She wasn't entirely coherent in the ER, but when I said, "I love you," she said, "I love you, too."
I think that will be the last thing to go.
