Life

My moms dying.

I'm driving to Bellingham tomorrow to see her and i'm excited about that. Today is her 80th birthday. I called to tell her Happy Birthday but my brother said she's not hearing very well so he yelled to her that I said 'Happy Birthday' and she gave him the finger for me.

Looks like she's having a good day.

When they told her I was coming up she didn't really react. Then she turned beet red and they, my brother and staff, were worried that she might be having a heart attack. When my brother was telling me the story I was thinking 'how sweet...she's excited that i'm coming'; but, instead he told me that she said "She's not bringing that God damn dog, is she?"

Yup...looks like she's having a good day....and, yes Mom...I am bringing that God damn dog.

Dear- I hope all goes well with Mom. I know about loving dogs- I took a trouble-maker Airedale and showed the world a sweetheart!

FYI...After a very long and at times, treacherous roadtrip, Tanya and Kody arrived safely in WA. Thank goodness that they have each other... :)

Oh my...I haven't been reading your blog long enough to know just how to process all of this, but wow, best wishes for your Mom, and I hope she can appreciate seeing the damn dog. She sounds like a real pistol.

I happen to love Kody so you can drop him off at my place and then spend as much time as you want with Mom... :(

Ugh. Life certainly can SUCK sometimes.

Hope your drive wasn't too eventful and you got to visit with your Mom in a meaningful way.

We've had so much snow and ice and all up here, I hope the roads were OK for you too.

Take care.
