Thanks to efurryone who sent healthy thoughts our way. Mom is feelin' better. She was able to get some stuff accomplished: She dropped the black masheen off to get repainted (black, of course); she took our grandparents to lunch at El Torito; she started ... and finished ... reading a book; she mailed some presents; she signed, stamped, and mailed our St. Paddy's Day cards to the relatives; she bought crackers; and she went to Baskin-Robbins to pick up grandad's favorite ice cream flavor (Lemon Custard). Not too shabby for someone who's sick, huh? She's still achy and congested, but on the mend.
