Mom Had a Stroke

This past Saturday evening, my 96 year-young-at-heart mother, Harriet, suffered a massive stroke while on the telephone with my husband.

Mom was happily chatting away with her favorite (and only) son-in-law, sharing all the news of her day.  She’d attended a wonderful sing-a-long concert.   She’d had an absolutely lovely conversation with her granddaughter, her grandson, as well as their spouses.  I’d spoken to her twice that day.  She was high on music from the 1940s and happy on family.

Mid-sentence the phone dropped.  We immediately called the door-person in her building who rushed up to her 10th floor apartment, at which time an ambulance was called.  She is currently in the hospital.

We are sitting with her, holding her hand, and working with the hospital staff to assure her comfort.  We are lighting candles, praying and reciting the Medicine Buddha meditation.

I debated all week whether or not to reveal these personal details, but when I received a good number of emails from y’all asking me where I’d disappeared to, wondering if everything was all right, I decided to share.

It is my intention to get back on track with regard to my blog posts, because honestly, being here with y’all is a joy and one of the best parts of my day.

Currently, I am compiling a list of happy songs from the 1930’s and 1940’s, so that I can create a music play list for my mother.   If you’d care to add a song to the list, feel free to “Leave a Song as Your Comment.”

Thank you for missing me, for reaching out, for caring.

With love and gratitude, I invite you to …

Spread the word–NOT the icing,
Janice
