Things haven't been that great lately.
First, my mom is hospitalized for a staph infection stemming from some type of arthritis (not the osteo that she knows she has...some other kind). They've got her on several antibiotics and she seems to be improving. Hopefully she'll be out of the hospital in a few days and into the therapy clinic. That would be about 3 more weeks.
The other downturn my life has taken is that Valerie and I are over after less than two months. I really thought things were going great, and love was definitely blooming, but it seems her feelings didn't mirror mine. But it takes two to tango, so what are ya gonna do right? Life goes on.
