I am facing that sad reality that almost everyone has to deal with at one point or another in their lives--the death of a parent. My mother suffered a stroke last week, ironically the day before we arrived for a visit. She has since been transfered from the hospital to hospice care with a very grim prognosis. We'll be heading back to Arizona tomorrow but it's doubtful we'll have more than a day or two with her.
I may not have the opportunity to post for a few days, but I'll be back as soon as possible.
