Golfwidow is right; when it snows, it blizzards.

The Godmother is currently resting back at the big hospital in Denver, where she awaits surgery tonight. It seems her insistence on being 'normal' and her refusal to listen to anyone *coughMEcough* along with the massive amounts of acid in her stomach has caused an abscess on the resection done two weeks ago.

They are having to open her up, and do the yucky things they do to take care of this matter.

I insist on staying, new job be damned.

She refuses to have me here. A blood kin will fly out for a bit, it seems, and tag team me out. We'll discuss the chemo time later... all of that is on hold for now.

So, I am on a plane tomorrow, wishing I could stay another week or six. Even with us nitpicking each other, even with her snoring in the next room, even with the snow that never ends... I wish I was going to be here.

She said her doctor was still laughing today about a comment I made last night... The Godfather had been in the room with her, I'd been sent out to buy something. He then left to have a cigarette, I took his place in the room... Dr. Blueeyes popped in, and looked startled to see me. I said, "You leave for a while and people change. It always amazes me, too."

I keep asking, please have her in your prayers.

Thanks... I appreciate it.

Thanks for the update. Prayers coming to you from California, for Godmother, and for another safe flight, once you're tagged out by kin.

You're Good People, Quin.
I love you.

Selfishly I am looking forward to seeing you my friend. Just remember if you need to go back early.. We will arrange it somehow. I have a phone now, so you can call the Godmother as often as you want. I know it is not the same and I know exactly what you mean about wishing you could stay. I would be exactly the same. I think maybe as a control freak.. ordering you and others about is one thing she can still do as in every other respect she is stuck at the mercy of the Medics. Have a safe flight and we shall make as good a time as we can. Big Love Q and Prayers to the Godmother

You know I carry you in my Spirit. My prayers have included her since you told me.
Take good care of her for us Loo, and send her home safely and swiftly

Sisters of other mothers, who's hearts are knit together with the golden threads of love.

I'm praying for you and for her and for the airport to not let the airport to lose your luggage like they did to me.

Take care Quin and stay strong.
