Haven't been here much lately, got some family medical stuff going on: Down in Louisiana, my mother has had a mild stroke. She's got local family gathered round, attending to her and to my father, who is in the middle stage of Alzheimer's.
Never a dull moment.
I've been talking to my sister and niece, had a conversation with my mother's primary care doctor, and she seems stable and relatively intact. Speech is pretty good, she can move okay, but she'll need to do rehab for a while to get back to normal for an eighty-five year old.
My son and I will be going down for a visit, after we get past the Thanksgiving flight jam. If you need to fly commercial around this time of year and you don't already have a ticket? Good luck with that.
Fortunately, it isn't critical that I get there immediately.
I'll keep you posted.
