We Almost Made It


Our plans were to spend the winter in Texas, which we haven't done since the winter of 2001. However, that's not to be. Last night my brother called me to say that our mother had not eaten all day and was too weak to sit up so I told him to take her to the emergency room at the local hospital. Once again, her sodium levels are down, although not dangerously so this time, and physically she's a mess so she was admitted for the night.

It's obvious to me now that Mom cannot live on her own so Denny and I are going to store our rig here in the South so we don't have to pull it through the mountains in wintry weather. We'll return to Ohio, buy some heavy duty air cleaners to try to keep the nicotine and tar levels from Mom's smoking to a minimum and see if having us there with her full time gets her back on an even keel. If not, then we'll have to investigate other living arrangements for her.

Denny and I are going to finish out our week here with Don and Vicki and then pack it all up to head north. We're girding our loins for facing the cold weather, and I'm starting to make lists like mad to make sure we take everything we need from the trailer since it will be parked 770 miles away from us. That makes it a little hard to run out to the trailer to pick up something we forgot, no?

Once again into the fray....

Oh Linda, I am so sorry to hear this about your Mom. I know what a worry this must be. My thoughts are with you as you pack up to head back to Ohio.

Oh, I'm sorry to hear your mom's not doing well. Texas will miss you.
