Thank you for your prayers.

My 82 year-old  mom, who fusses if I say she is 83 by mistake,  has had three bad falls this year, the last and worst of which occurred the night I arrived for a short visit.  She was x-rayed and blood-tested, and EEGed the next day and beyond being bruised and shaky,  the doctors do not think that she has any serious ailments.  There is, however, a high probability that she was extremely over-medicated, so she is going to try the next month au natural, if you will. The positive side of this crisis is that it forced us to talk about, and  take a practice run at, some of the geriatric care issues that we may encounter over the next 10-20 years.

I appreciate the positive energies and prayers you sent our way.

And now we will return you to our regularly scheduled programming.
