My mom is back at home, which is good. They don't know what is wrong with her, which is bad.

The CATscan and MRI didn't really confirm anything. They are still saying it may have been a "mini" stroke. Frankly, putting that "mini" in front of the word stroke doesn't keep it from scaring the crap out of me. She's still dizzy and is having trouble with her vision. They told her to go to an opthamologist to see if they could figure out what's going on. I spoke with her a little last night and she's in good spirits. She's a little pissy that she can't drive and just all over frustrated about the situation.

Good news is that J and I are going there for Thanksgiving this year, so I get to see her in a couple weeks. My mom and I joked that if she's not feeling better, I may have to cook...yikes! Let's hope not. Not because I don't want to help, but my Mom's Thanksgivings are Yuuuuuummmmmmmyyyyyyy. MMMMMMmmmmmmm. I don't want to be responsible for ruining Thanksgiving. I suppose my Mom could coach me from the sidelines. Oh Lord, that would be a nightmare too. My mom is not the most patient of people.

Hmm, we shall see.

I'm so sorry to hear your mama went through this, I'd be scared shitless, too! Ugh, I hate that our parents are actual people and not bulletproof. No fair. Please give her a big fat hug for me.

Thanks Amy. I KNOW...stroke?! God, I hope not. But I guess it doesn't matter what you call it, it still sucks. She's doin' ok though.

Holy Shit. What the hell? I am so sorry. I tried calling you last night so we could have a glass of wine over the phone - seems so stupid now when I think that at that time you were going out of your mind. I am so sorry - I will certainly be calling you tonight. Hang in there buddy.

Hey girlie - Don't worry, I was actually at knitting:-) I spoke to my mom before I went and she was still in the hospital. When I got home, she was home!!

And god, don't feel bad, if there was ever a time to have a glass of wine with a friend, that was it.

talk to you later!
