I had posted a personal note about my Mom's illness a couple of posts ago. Here's a quick update--Her condition has worsened, and my sister and I are staying with her around the clock. I don't get home often, so I'm never sure what I'll be able to do while I'm here (because of time constraints and issues with focus). I have spent the last two days and nights at her bedside and needed a rest, so my sister is with her now. I have found that working with fabric and writing my blog posts help me to relax and take my mind off things for just a little while. I desperately need that. I did have time today to finish my Beth/Lyric Project exercise for this week. I'll be posting it this weekend if I get home. If I don't get to come home (and since the post itself is already written and saved), I may try to post it from my Blackberry...so check back for that.
I'd like to take this opportunity to thank all of you who took the time to send me a note of support and love. I can't tell you what that means to me. My Mom and I are very close. This is really hard for me and my family.
