I know this if totally off topic, but just wanted to post to the friends that I have made here. We received a phone call on Tues. morning that our Mom had had a spell, and that they gave her maybe a couple of days to live. So Tues. night my husband and I made the trip from Tennessee to Iowa, which is a 12hr drive. I was on the way to the doctor that morning in regards to the follow up to the fever I had been dealing with for several days. So while at Drs. office we told them what was going on and asked about the fact of me just having had surgery 2 wks ago, and traveling. She told me as long as I alternated between sitting, laying down, and stopping often for me to walk, it would be okay. The majority of the trip I laid in the back seat stretched out. As soon as we got into town we went directly to the nursing home, and spent the whole day sitting with Mom. Although she was basically comatose, we spoke to her and just spent time with her. My twin sis, big brother and his girlfriend also made it in. My older sis did not make it in till tonight after Mom had already passed. I know I have not been keeping to drs. instructions for last couple of days, but Mom came first.
Thanks for listening to me rattle, but it is time to go to bed and try to get some sleep.
