Poised to Fly Home...

We just got a call from Dr. M’s Aunt J. His mother has possibly had another stroke & is now unresponsive. She may not live more than a week or two. I am so glad that he got to spend quality time with her on Saturday. She recognized him and was happy to see him – it’s a good memory.



Dr. M thought
his family was more
dysfunctional than most.

He thought.

But she welcomed me
with open arms &
I knew that they were just fine.

Just shows you can’t judge
a family from the inside.

And that his mother had
excellent taste.

I’ll miss you Frances
almost as much as your
son will.
