    A sad reminder.

    If either of your parents are alive, try to tell them that you Love them the at your earliest opportunity.

    My mother-in-law is "checking out" as we speak. We just got the call, and are trying to make emergency arrangements.

    We come, we go. When we are lucky, we are Loved along the way.
    Tell those who gave you Life that you Love them back...

    My thoughts are with you, Madster.

    My own mother died 8 months ago and my wife's mother just went about 7 weeks ago...

    Update: The doctors have "pulled her back from the brink..." We were able to talk to her on the phone, and she said, "Don't bother flying out here, there's nothing you can do, it's too late..." She's in excrutiating pain, and on heavy meds...
    The doctors say that this might be the start of a long period of decline...We don't know what to do now. Go, only to have to come back to work and responsibilities in a week, doing some sort of "death watch," not wanting her to die, but wanting to be there if she does? Come back, just to turn around and fly back again when the doctors aren't successful in emergency resuscitation? It's a 24 hour straight through drive, and that's costly in it's own way with wear and tear on us AND the car. We just got back 3 weeks ago from our second visit in two months...I figured out what my "imaginary Super Power" would be. It would be the ability to go anywhere on the planet in the blink of an eye...

    Thank you all for your kind thoughts. I know we're not the first to go through this, and since my parents have both been gone for awhile now, I have the knowledge that the present pain, confusion, and numbness WILL pass. It's just when you're in the middle of it when it is SO hard to know which way to turn...so, you just keep on keepin' on, I guess...
