I have received lots of great cards, and I thank you all for the joy they bring when I find them in my mailbox. On 30 March my mother landed in the ER with a mild stoke (her second). After 4 days in the in the hospital, she is now spent 5 days in a sub-acute rehab facility. Unfortunately at 93 years-old she has had a very slow recovery. The main issues are: (1) regaining her balance so she might return home, and (2) treating the deep depression she is suffering from.
Mom is a wonderful woman and it has been rough on me to see her suffer as much as she has. I am her only child so a lot has been thrust upon me in very short order. Fortunately Dad (at 88 years-old) is taking this in stride. I cannot imagine how he feels.
This is all an introduction to why I have not commented on any cards for several weeks. Hope to do so soon.
