Heading South.. . If I Can Leave Connecticut

I’m at Gate 30 at Bradley.  This is mainly unfamiliar territory for me.  I am flying to West Palm Beach via Charlotte.  Delayed!

I got a call least night during the news.  My mom slipped or fell and was taken to the hospital.  She is there now.

There’s not much else I can say.  What’s put my mom in the hospital is just a piece in the spiral of health issues that come with age.

    Sending prayers and warm wishes your way. It is tough to worry about our parents the way they used to worry about us. At least you will be able to spend Mother’s Day with her and I’m sure that will help immensely. Keep us posted when you can.
