In Loving Memory

My mom passed away peacefully in the hospice early this morning, at 5:30am PST. She lost her fight against cancer and I hope she is in a happier place now.

Season 14: Emergence Overview

Sorry for the very sporadic posts, but things haven’t settled down for me at all. In addition to my unexpectedly poor post-op recovery, I am also dealing with mom’s failing health. As she has been admitted to palliative care, I am trying to see her as much as I can before she passes.
