An Unexpected Trip To My Mother's House, Or, Saturday Morning at 11:03am

I will be leaving for Santa Barbara in an hour or so. My mother's husband had surprise successful heart surgery last week. Successful is good, surprise is never what you want. He comes home today, so I'm going to drive down and help my mother get used to the new routine.

My intent is to participate in the blogosphere in any case, as the situation permits. I have no doubt that you dear people will understand. None at all. You've been very supportive of so many things and I thank you in advance.

Have a wonderful weekend.

I hope he gets well soon. Surprises like that are stressful for everyone. Both of my parents have had heart surgeries (Dad had a quad bypass, Mom had most of her heart valves replaced with bovine valves...we still moo at her). After a few months of taking it easy they were back to roaming the country side and working.
Technology has come a long way thank goodness.

The "success vs. surprise" statement is so true Miss LPC, it really hit home. We send hopes things are going well for all involved. :)

And we send you a hug, knowing how stressful it can become.
