Um, Can I Ask a Favor?

I need some prayers and good thoughts tadpoles.

I wouldn't bring this up right now as it is Christmas [and wasn't I having a great time], but seems my Mom is failing hard and Christmas isn't looking too bright in her lil' swamp in SC.

She is being put in the ICU tonight. Her lung capacity is down to 17% and she is being quite combative.

So, a lil' "Hey Patti - hang in there - 'till Skippy gets there." would work wonders for me.

We can't leave until ...sometime [tomorrow? Thurday?] soon, so I will be around 'till then. Guess my doctor was wrong - I can will travel to SC.

Just think something nice. For my family - okay?

Definitely praying for you and your mom and your family! Let us know how it turns out- and if the honey glazed salmon turns out good whenever you get a chance to try it! LOL! Hope a little humor helps. You're awesome, God bless.

Okay, take a deep breath and relax. Your mom will hang in there for you--after all, orneriness runs in the family, right?

Seriously, I'm sending all the positive energy I can her way. Y'all be safe. ((((((Skippy Family)))))

Oh Skippy I am so sorry to hear this... I know from personal experience how hard it is when you get that phone call... you feel like someone has just squeezed all the air out of you. Take a breath and say to yourself..."it will be ok". Drive carefully- she would rather you be a bit longer & in one piece- keep us posted... my prayers are with you!
