I spoke to my mom on the phone this evening. I didn't keep her on the phone too long for fear of tiring her out.
(She was fighting for every breath she took.)
My sister drove from Ottawa to Ste. Eustache to see her today and mom was taken off the oxygen while she was there.
She says she looks pretty good.
I did good. I didn't cry until I hung up.

I want to thank those of you who left your kind thoughts and well wishes.
Mom's going to be awestruck to hear just how far some of the well wishes came from.
I can't wait to tell her. Thank you all so much!

A special thanks to ms_nerd who dragged me away from my fear-the-worse thoughts for the afternoon.
You said the right things, the right ways, at the right times.

It's okay to cry. Remember that. You can always blame it on Christmas.

I'm so glad that your mom's feeling better. Give her a huge hug from me when you see her, and have one from me to you too ((((((hugs))))).

You look after yourself too.

Thanks so much. I'm going to call her again today.
I hope there's still more improvement.
Thanks for the hugs. Mom's going to love hers.
(It'll be over the phone cause I live so far but she's getting them none the less)
and taking better care of myself is my New Year's resolution

*muah* You're so cute!

but oh! i didn't do anything!

It's a gift sweeite. It's not payment for anything anybody did.

mom's slowly getting better. She's been taken off oxygen and may be released in a couple of days. So, it's looking like a happier Christmas right now. :o)
