As many of you know my mom's condition became very serious when we were visiting last week. We thought she was out of the woods but today she took a turn for the worse that her doctors describe as 'inexplicable and traumatic' It may be nothing. it may be very serious and as most of you know my mom is on about life #15 right now so she may be sitting up fine as a fiddle tomorrow. But she is not recognizing people and not making sense right now. the nurses felt strongly my brother and I need to be there. My brother is going up tonight. I am going to go in the morning. I am borrowing a laptop from the theater so I can stay in email contact' I am hopeful that I will be able to come home tomorrow as well or at least on Saturday if she is staabilized but I have no way of knowing what is going to happen. Should the worst happen I will probably come back to NH for a day or so before going back to Maine again. My brother said to me on the phone that he "doesn't think this is going to end well" having been through my dad and my sisters' deaths together we have a good way of communicating and my mom is sounding now just like my sister did when she died.
Liza is being AMAZING and loving and wonderful. Daviid will get her tomorrow after school and keep her as long as need be and is being incredibely supportive Kelly's going to check my mail for me (she's working all weekend so can't go up with me but there's nothing she could do anyway) and fortunately I' just hit some major deadlines at work so don't have anything pressing to deal with right now. So.. off I go. If nothign else I know I'll be back by Tuesday to vote! ;-)
thanks for all your support and good wishes. I'll be on again tonight I'm sure since I know I won't be able to sleep!
