I have a free-lance editing assignment that’s overdue. There is another six inches of snow on the sidewalk. And my mother’s in the hospital. All three of those things will resolve positively, it seems, the first two through simple effort and the last through what seems to be good fortune.
Mom had a slight stroke, probably Wednesday evening, and got to the emergency room Thursday morning. At the time, she couldn’t move her left arm very much or her left leg at all. Yesterday, her left arm was working as well as her right, and she was walking short distances with the use of a walker.
She’s likely going to be in the hospital for another few days and then spend a week or so in a facility where she’ll get some physical therapy. The goal is to get her back home, back to living on her own in her assisted living apartment.
So I’m just going to leave it there for now. I’ll get my chores done and go visit my mom today.
And here’s a track from Motel Shot, the 1971 abum by Delaney & Bonnie & Friends. It’s “Sing My Way Home,” and it’s today’s Saturday Single.
