Monday Mom Update

Cannon Memorial Hospital
Monday, July 27, 2015

Mother's sleeping fairly comfortably.  Her breathing is very labored at times, but she seems peaceful.

When I look over and see her with bruises all over her arms from necessary tubes and IVs and an oxygen mask over her face it makes me unbearably sad.

This is the woman I see in my mind and in my heart - always.

A woman with great style, an irreverent sense of humor and a wonderfully earthy laugh that comes from deep within her soul, and up from the very soles of her feet.  

One who lived her life by the words - - - 

"Do no harm, but take no shit."

She has taught me much.
