In Other News ...

I'm home for a day, Mom's taken a turn for the worse, her kidneys are shutting down, and the future is uncertain. As it is for all of us.Though her prognosis changes every 15 minutes, things do not look good.

Thanks so much to my blog family for all your good wishes.

I am keeping a journal of the saga. Some of it is funny, looked at in a certain light ... OK, if you insist, here's an example: My mother (who had been perfectly lucid until last week) hallucinating that she is in Sears, and asking the nurse does he work at Sears too? And him saying "No, but I shop there a lot!"

I mean really, Sears. Why couldn't she hallucinate Sak's, or Tiffany's???

Sick, huh.

Sorry to hear about your mom.

I hope I don't hallucinate Sears either. George Clooney yes. JCPenny no way.

Jeanne my thoughts are with you, too. I hope your Mom recovers and pulls through and I also hope you have a good support system there.

Laughter probably is the best medicine for you. I hope someone can find the best one for your Mom.

Thanks for the shout out, too.
