the quickest of updates

the last four days, i am certain, have been some of the most difficult of my mom's life. the first surgery was disastrous...and after a ridiculously long weekend of just horrific pain, my mom endured a second surgery today with much more promising results.

i am falling into bed now...and will write more when i can. i have received so. many. fabulous well-wishes from y'all, and just wanted to say thank you, from the bottom of my heart.

and especially to the matriarch, mchottie, corey, jill and auds. it's amazing how a friendly face or the sound of a friend's voice on the telephone can give such a tremendous lift to a tired heart. i have never felt so loved, or taken care of, and because of that i've been better able to love and take care of my mom. such a gift these women are. such a gift.

stay tuned...

Hold yourself close, friend. You're being thought of in the far reaches of Down East.

I hope all will get better for your mother quickly, and you will be able to get some much needed rest. You are thought of often.

Dar ~ your mom's resilience is inspiring... and the apple didn't fall far from that tree.

We love you to the moon and back!
