Gosh, iRock. I really feel for what you're going through. I've been through it with my father and my father-in-law. My father made it (last October), but my father in law didn't (1994). It's a numb experience, isn't it? You think the world should be crumbling, but it seems to be going on as usual, including your distressed loved-one, just with hospitals and doctors and wires and tubes and things that aren't normally there. They're looking right back at you and yet you both know that there's just a fine line... It's just too much to think about. <br><br>Good luck. God bless. I hope she gets whatever treatment she needs to get out of there and live till she's 100. I guess it's never the right time. Reminds me of this poem by Frost:<br><br>I have been one acquainted with the night.<br>I have walked out in rain--and back in rain.<br>I have outwalked the furthest city light.<br><br>I have looked down the saddest city lane.<br>I have passed by the watchman on his beat<br>And dropped my eyes, unwilling to explain.<br><br>I have stood still and stopped the sound of feet<br>When far away an interrupted cry<br>Came over houses from another street,<br><br>But not to call me back or say good-by;<br>And further still at an unearthly height<br>One luminary clock against the sky<br><br>Proclaimed the time was neither wrong nor right.<br>I have been one acquainted with the night.<br><br>Robert Frost<br><br><br>-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-<br><br><br>Shooshie<br><br><br><br>Shooshie's Stuff

Like I would forego a chance to visit Longview!<br><br>My emotions are still bouncing all over the map, but that only suggests that I am, in fact, totally insane.<br><br>Still, I actually made a Mosaic related post at MacC mere moments ago. I'm looking forward to our signing party, Rock.<br><br>Meanwhile, know that the good vibes for your mom continue to emanate. Sweetie and I were talking about MacC, etc. last night, and your mom came up. "Perspective" was a great title for your post about it, because, as Sweetie mentioned, it helps us remember the things that are really important in all this. The good vibes are coming from both of us. (Plus, the cat and the dog!)<br><br>
