I feel like I've been gone forever. I missed all of my fandom pals and I missed my family here in town. My mom is doing fairly well. Not great, but she just had heart surgery and also has congestive heart failure, so what more can I expect. She told me today she's bored out of her mind. She hates being this weak and not able to go places and do things by herself anymore. There will be a lot of changes made. Poor thing. She's going on 85 and my dad who takes care of her right now is 87. So they miss me being there, taking care of them. I couldn't stay any longer. Three weeks is a long, long time to stay away from your husband and family. My puppy didn't remember me. She didn't hate me or anything, but there wasn't that bond there like there was before. Things changed in both households. I just wanted to let you know that she's home and doing fairly well. Keep her in your thoughts and prayers if you think of it. Thank you, everyone for your support. It helped a great deal.
