Beauty where you find it

Dad made it home from the hospital on Friday. He's doing very well.

Mom, however, is another story...

Saturday morning Mom went into the hosital with what appeared to be a bad GI flu.
They needed to call the ambulance to bring her in, as Dad being postop recovery,
can't drive yet. I drove to Wisconsin to check on the two of them.

Once it seemed that Mom was stable, and would need to be treated for a day or two, we headed back to their house. We sat on the deck, enjoying the amazing November weather. It's always lovely overlooking the lake.

This morning, Mom called before we got to the hospital to visit. She had chest pain during the night and apparently had an MI. They were shipping her to St. Paul by ambulance for more treatment.

Currently, she's comfortable in CCU, awaiting an angiogram in the morning. Treatment will be planned based on the results. Dad's staying with me, and my brother will bring him to the hospital in the morning.

Waiting is always the worst...

It helps to have something for the hands to do though, doesn't it?

I hope everything is all right with your mom and I'm glad to hear your dad is doing well.

Your picture is absolutely beautiful. I love crescent moons and the reflection on the lake make it seem all the more serene and peaceful.
