Mother's Day

Visited my mother at the rehab center and we had lunch together, after which I gave her some gifts: new clothes etc. She went into the hospital a week and a half ago with abdominal pain and the doc said she passed a gall stone. They treated her for an infection as well, and sent her to rehab afterward because the hospital stay made her weak.

She's looking great for pocket 7s, and after 5 doses of chemo for Hodgkin's Lymphoma. She will resume treatment as soon as the rehab facility says she's strong enough. Hopefully by next Thanksgiving or Christmas she'll be done with chemo and can ring the brass bell at the oncologist's office. Gonna get that on video for sure. She's a strong woman. For someone who never drove because she feared 18-wheelers on busy highways, my mother is otherwise fearless and will still give those who need it a good cussing. None of that today though, and usually only when necessary. 

Mother's Day was indeed Happy.


  1. Hi Riffle! I hope she rings the bell! Pocket 7s ... that's awesome :).
