“Problems cannot be solved at the same level of awareness that created them.” – Albert Einstein

There will be a vacation update. There MUST be, because I came back last week from the closest place to paradise on earth, and I CANNOT wait to tell you about it. But during the middle of my vacation, my mother was medi-vaced to a critical care unit in Minneapolis with severe pnuemonia and an infection of her cervical vertebrae. She is improving, but is still on a respirator and heavily medicated. This is taking up a lot of my psychic energy, and as soon as I have it in me to post, I will.

One thing, however, that touched me, is that before she was taken out by helicopter, my mother informed my father that no matter what, UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES WHATSOEVER, was her daughter to be brought home early from the vacation that she desperately needed. It was actually one of the very nicest things my mother has ever tried to do for me.

I hope she gets better soon.

    My thoughts are with you and your mom. My mom is in very much the same condition as a result of swine flu. She’s on day 19 of her ccu stay. She was switched from the vent to a trach yesterday and seems to finally be showing some improvement.
