Thank you to everyone for their concern. My mom had a severe cerebellar hemorrhage on Saturday. I find myself lacking the words to describe her current condition, and for her privacy I will refrain from discussing it here. She has been in critical care in the ICU for five days; although there will be a long road to normalcy, so far the physical aspects of her recovery have been very good. My father and the rest of the family are coping. This occurred so unexpectedly that the whole thing has been quite a shock. Now, it remains for us to be patient as she heals.
Here's to hoping that my next post is from New Haven with more good news. Thanks again for your kind words of support.
