Another Vigil

Dad's 88th birthday is going to be in exactly three weeks, August 21. Mom just called and it looks as though he may not be with us to celebrate it. He's in a coma or semi-coma (not clear which) and having convulsions.

I keep thinking how surprised he will be to discover that his youngest daughter has recently predeceased him.

Madison and Elizabeth and I are in North Carolina, visiting their cousins. We've had a wonderful time, but we're also at least 5 and a half hours away from Mom and Dad. We're on standby.
