A quick update….

Mom’s scheduled for surgery on Tuesday. I’ll be headed up there at some point on Monday after I get the last publication done at work.

I’m afraid I’m not handling all of this very well. I swing from “everything will be fine” to “what if it isn’t?” kind of thoughts. I know it’s all pretty normal in a situation like this, but it really makes me wish I were closer as she’s going to need a lot of care after she comes home.

I want to thank you all for your thoughts and prayers.. they mean a lot.

I know this is going to leave a lot of items ‘up in the air’ around here professionally, but hey, I can always get more work. You only get one Mom.

I’ll do my best to update everyone on what’s happening, but I’m not sure what kind of web access I’ll have while I’m there. I’ll figure something out, I always do!

I'm working on another post for today, but, I wanted to give you all an update. It's strange isn't it? The way we all become close out here in 'blog-land'? I feel like I know each one of you, and often wish we lived close to one another so we could get together and talk over coffee. I truly appreciate all the thoughts and prayers, it means a lot, it really it does!

Take care . ..
