Several folks commented, asking how my mother was doing, or wishing her, and my family, well.
Thank you, all. TDW-Mark II and I were both touched by your kindness.
Presently, she is chirpily ensconced in The Maternal State, with my brother, The Accountant. We have chatted, several times (Mom and I), and she is happier where she considers herself to be “home”, than back here in The Un-Named Fly-over State.
She has had her first radiation therapy treatment, and I await an update from my brother/mother.
And, once The Brother Who Is An Accountant has had His Way with several of God’s Children, who are NOT exemplars of “The Healing Arts”, well, THAT will be the topic of a blog post of it’s own.
A very DARK post.
In the meantime, I will attempt to figure out how to give major props to physicians, in the no shit highest traditions of Medicine, who have genuinely Taken Care of Business, to my mother’s benefit, and see if I can do so without blowing op sec.
I will simply say, they are cut from the same bolt of cloth, as the car service guy, who with no drama, no fanfare, simply do their christian best to do the right thing. (see my post of 6-28-19)
