I Got A Phone Call This Morning At 2:45 A.M.....

....It was from my Mother who lives two doors down. She was having trouble breathing and experiencing chest pains. I told her I would be right down as soon as I called 911.

Earlier Sunday evening I went down there to pick up her house and take her trash out. She was sitting up in bed, reading. We talked a little about how 'close' it was outside and the storm coming in from the west. I have noticed that whenever the barometer changes, her breathing patterns seem to change.

She will stay in Cox South for a couple of days while her doctors try to regulate her irregular heartbeat with medicine. She also has inflammation around the lining of her lungs. She has good doctors.

She is tethered to an 02 machine.

I will be so glad when warm weather gets here and the sun starts shining again.

And I know my Mom will too.

I remember John Stone went through the 911 experience with his mother

I know how frightening such situations can be as the recipient of middle of the night calls myself. It's good that they are going to keep her for a couple of days and check her out. Get some rest.

Best wishes to your Mom and all of you who take care of her. I'm off to WI this weekend to visit my Dad... thank God he's bounced back from what he was going through this time last year.

I got Mama Bus in my prayers, Jim. Now, as jack said, get some rest for yourself!
