ALIVE ... BUT NOT ENTIRELY WELL
I am back home from helping my mother settle in after she spent 19 days in two different hospitals. She has a serious heart condition but not lung cancer, and she has the best health insurance in the world, next to elected officials. It was the one really great benefit of her career as a high school librarian for 23 years, before the pay was good. She's very weak and insecure about being on her own, but she has loads of friends where she lives. They check on her often. Plus, she wears one of those I've-fallen-and-I-can't-get-up buttons on her wrist. She needs to realize she can do it. But I worry.
On the other hand, I have a cold brewing. Dog-tired and freezing one minute, warm the next. I'll try to post something this weekend.
