Please forgive my absence and lack of response as of late. My Mom had a stroke, I flew outta here and haven't been on line till yesterday. She was in the hospital for six days, then moved to a rehab facility for 7 days now, 13 days in all. Love and Peace, Katie
Sad to hear katie, hope your mom recuperate well! Welcome back!
Welcome Back Katie, sorry to hear about your mum's illness...wish her a quick recovery
Sorry about your mom Katie. I hope she feels better and you're ok.
Wow. Life changes in an instant. I hope your mom is doing better and her recovery will be a full one! Glad you're back, as well. Thanks for letting us know.
Sorry to here that about your mum. I hope she is recovering well. Welcome back to your support network that is Hubpages.
I hope she is doing better. Is someone with her?
I wondered where you were. It can be so stressful when something happens to our parents.
Thank you rebekah. I was really taken back as to just how difficult it was to see my Mom reduce to such illness, weak and helpless. I could not do enough for her, so it seemed, not because she demanded anything, she did not, it's just I wanted so badly to make her better and feel safe as she always did me.
Glad you're back with us, Katie.
I would say "Welcome to the dealing with ailing parents club" but I know it's not a club you ever wanted to join.
Still, there are many, many of us hubbers who have stood in your shoes.
Hub Pages has always been a source of support for me during family crises. I hope you will lean on us for -- whatever lightens your load (even if it's just silliness!).
Take care and all the best to your mom in her recovery.
Mighty Mom your so right and I will, I appreciate that.
I lost my dad when I was very young as was he.
My Mom never remarried and has had this stroke at young age herself.
She was a healthy and vibrant woman and when I saw her I thought, Who is that. She had lost a lot of weight and looked so much older, I had just visited with her over the holidays.
It can happen fast. I didn't sleep for 5 days and I didn't think that was possible. I was taking care of my Mom as if she were a baby. She is for now. I do hope she gets better but I feel there maybe something underlying. Hence the drastic weight loss in just five weeks.
Thanks for being here I'm so grateful for my hubber family!
Glad to have you back and hope that the doctors are able to at least pinpoint the underlying problem and help your mother and you both be comfortable (ie, sleeping every night for you!)
I am so sorry to hear of this Katie and if there is anything we can do to help, just say.
I do hope you mum's recovers and that whatever is underlying is treatable.
Welcome back. Your Mom will recover well with the blessings of god.
Wishing the best for your mom Katie. love from my family to yours. Illness is always a tough time for families.
..hey, she's in good hands...it's good to be there for her isn't it...get some rest...
...mine just happens to be in the hospital too...

Hi just a quickie to say I'm back! I have a TON of hubs started and unfinished, so will be getting to grips with those and what better way than to do the challenge?Everything declined after dad died, but I'm now getting back in the saddle, so watch out for at least 30 new hubs in the next 30...

Hello guys and gals! I've returned to HP after a lengthy absence and I've noticed they have apparently stripped us of our ability to post comments... How are you all dealing with this unfortunate new change? I mean...How in the world am I supposed to comment on Dora Weithers (MsDora) almost daily...

This is off topic but needs to be said so I'll say it then drop it.I admit I have lost my cool several times in here but NOT unprovoked (that’s not an excuse).I have a habit of protecting the underdog from those who prey with words to show dominance.. as is the case with a few people in here...
