Get Well Mom!!

So, my dad called yesterday. My mom is in the Hospital. Apparently she has Pancreaitis...pancre-itis...pan-cre-itis...well, something is wrong with her pancreas. They are keeping her in the hospital for a couple days for observation and to get her back on track. So, Mom, get well soon!

Today is also our 15 month anniversary for being logged-in in China. The last month has been a bit hard, but things are looking up with the possibility of a Burundi Baby showing up around the house sometime in the near future! (I don't mean one morning we will walk in the living room and see Burundi Baby just sitting on the coffee table like a flower arrangement...but wouldn't it be cool if you could get your baby fed-exed? Or FTDed? Ding-Dong. "well, who could that be?" "Good Morning sir, I have a delivery for Cora and Jim, sign here please." "Honey, it's here! I forgot we had ordered one! Its the Burundi Baby!" Or, Ding-Dong. "Here you are sir." "Honey! Burundi sent us a Baby Bouquet!!" "Ohhhh, they shouldn't have, but I am glad they did! ...should we put it in water?" )

Today should be a nice day. I am fairly sure I will be mowing. I should have a chance at having a good lunch. Psych is on and we may go down and visit my mom...they are taking her off of food and water, replacing it with an IV...do you think chocolates would be a cruel gift? Yeah, probably better go with something else....

Ouch ! I feel sorry for your Mom and hope she is feeling better already.
The FedEx baby is a great concept. Maybe some day it can be done that way. You are going to enjoy that trip and all that goes with it. Much more than a day in the hospital pacing the floor and you won't have to say "push" even once.
