I have to say, in the midst of all that you are going thru, you managed to bring back something that made me chuckle..."making air" was what my days in the hospital were all about after surgery. EVERY person who walked in to see me, medical or not, always asked if I had passed gas yet. Some called it "passing gas", but some just put it out there..."have you farted yet?" Oh the times I had to roll my eyes at them.
I hope your Mom continues to heal and gets home before too long. She is in all of our thoughts and prayers.
Find the humor where you can!!! (I think that may be my new byline...)
Today is a new day. Congratulations, you are already a survivor!
