Mama

My sister Tara wrote a bit about it on her blog, but my mama is down with pneumonia and is in the ICU in Kansas City. She hates hospitals and doctors, and is pretty freaked out about the whole thing.

Needless to say, we're pretty freaked out around here, too. Mama is the thread that holds this crazy bunch together, and we can't even call her on the phone! Mellisa came over tonight and said that this is longest she's ever gone without talking to mom (2 days). Tara and Will are coming home for Thanksgiving. We talked about maybe not making Thanksgiving dinner, to wait until mom comes home and then have the meal then, but Grandma and Dad both said, "Let's just have Thanksgiving twice!

Well, we're praying for our mama, and hope that you'll say one for her, too.

Anne - Sorry to hear about your Mom. You all will be in our prayers.

We were in your situation last week with Tyrone's Dad. He is home now, but not 100% better.

Keep on those Doctors.
