it's probably going to be the end of the week before my mom is allowed out of the hospital. they're still are a few symtoms that they are trying to identify, so she has to stay while they poke her and prod her and stick things in her and look around. it all looks very uncomfortable. poor thing! she is so tired of being in a bed in a room where no one really listens to her. she's tired of hospital food (this particular hospital has particularly bad food) and she's tired of not seeing her family, especially the kids.

i'm tired (if i may steal the spotlight a bit) of running back and forth to the hospital, finding babysitters and only being able to stay a limited amount of time. i am not tired of those blod clot leg things. they feel slightly like a massage on my calves.

i think my dad's tired of limited time spent with his wife and sleeping alone at night.

and my brother's are tired of not having my mom at home. we all are. the other day i forgot she was in the hospital and i actually picked up the phone to call and ask if she was feeling up to a trip to the mall. i had to go alone. definitley not as fun as having my mom there to laugh at all the same things.

i can't wait for her to come home!

Too old? He's younger than Brad by a year. And if we're going by maturity, I'm about as mature as he is, if not more. Plus, he went on his mission to Russia. Dad will approve of that.

Sorry to hear that your mom is still in the hospital. Hopefully she will get to come home to her family soon and feeling better.

Hang in there, Hermansens and Packards! There is light at the end of the tunnel!

Incidentally, I can't wait to hang out with you this weekend, if you're still in!
