Good news! My mom is doing well and in good spirits. We've spent the past day giggling till she groans with pain, at which point we start giggling again. I'm typing this out at an honest to goodness machine of antiquated technology, a dell desktop circa 2000. Yes, it has some old timey AOL dial up internet.
While my mom napped this afternoon, I stole my dad's car to run to the antique store, the windows were down, the radio station was playing Sublime and wow, it could have been 1998 for all I knew. GTG, dinner time. TTYL, LYLAS!
I've come full circle, people, full circle.
