No Title

Sorry kids - another non-post post. Usually I don't do two of these a month, let alone in a week or so. I'm even too lazy to come up with a corresponding blog title.

The week has been long, but now we have a long weekend.

It's sad - it's my first day off since starting this job - six months and two weeks ago (but who's counting?). I've fallen back into horrible patterns of not using my paid time off. That has to change.

We considered a weekend getaway this week, but my mother kind of saw to that. I'm not blaming her or anything. She even suggested yesterday that we should go away, even though I never told it was a potential plan. She said she was fine and we didn't need to stay.

She looks better. She looks and sound stronger. Her white count is dropping, but not yet normal. Her O2 saturation is stable. Blood pressure is a little low. But she's being taken care of and that's what is important.

And no, I haven't talked to most of my sisters yet. Nor do I really plan on it. They're big girls - they can figure it out if they need or want to.   ....and you all got more of an update than I gave them.

Ok, it's 22:02 and I'm starting to doze off.
