I'm up at Mom's to celebrate the New Year. She had a checkup mid-December, then spent the next ten days not answering her phone and ignoring her messages. When they finally got thru to her on Christmas Eve Eve, she was told to get right to the ER. I came over as quickly as possible, and Mom spent the night in the hosptital getting a transfusion of three units of blood. Seems she has acute anemia. She was back home for Christmas, and already getting around better than she has in the last 6-8 months. The 29th she had a colonoscopy and endoscopy, both clear. Again, I'm very thankful. There'll have to be more testing, as they don't know yet what's wrong, so I'm very grateful for our little Christmas Miracle, and hopeful that the New Year will bring a a benign diagnosis and easy remedy.
Meanwhile, best wishes to all of my good blog friends and family for the a truly wonderful New Year. Stay safe and take care this weekend.
