  •  Hey, you were dealing with a real FP... (10+ / 0-)

    ...and BTW, how's your mother?

    •  She' pretty good, thanks for asking. (10+ / 0-)

      In fact, we spent the day driving up the Columbia Gorge with her and a good friend of the family as they celebrated their 89th and 88th birthday's, respectively.  I just got home from dropping them off.

      Last week's episode began with dizziness and ended with them sending her home yet gain with instructions that perplex her.  Mom's problem is bleeding ulcers and forgetfulness.  She forgets not to take aspirin-based products, so her ulcers flare up.  I frisk her apartment frequently, and she is getting better about remembering, but, man...

      After last week's health dive, she has improved dramatically.  She's cranky and kind of creaky and still forgetful about other stuff, but both ladies had a nice time today and we made them a kick-ass salmon dinner this evening.

      Don't know how soon until the next episode, but in two weeks my sister and brother-in-law arrive back in the country after 4 years in Africa, and 2 in DC, so relief help is on the way.

      Wow.  Thanks for the soapbox.  :-)

      Can you call yourself a real liberal if you aren't reading driftglass?
