atonement

if last weekend saw me shirking maternal responsibility, this week saw me swimming in it. One of my boys has been in the hospital since Monday night, and is projected to be there til next Friday. He'll be ok, though the path from here to there is still a bit uncharted, and some paths are easier than others. It's not easy to see your child connected to endless IV lines, and you know life has turned around when you're happy to hear him complain about it.

When the big stuff hits, there's no denying what a mom needs to do....

I'm glad to hear he's getting better. Turn your attention to where it's needed most. Even us meanies in the design partner group would have you put your family first! :-)

Our thoughts and hopes are with you.

Hi Maureen...So sorry to hear, as this is one of the worst things to happen when you're a parent. Nathan's right...family is all that counts right now. We'll be here when you get back (and sending positive thoughts your way).

Hope he is on the path to recovery and health. If you can tell us more about what happened.

Wow Maureen - our thoughts are with you. Let us know if there is anything we can do to make things easier. Some of us aren't that far away.
