Guys, your good wishes must be working: Mum had a really good day yesterday (some nausea, but also some solid food and 4 little walks around the ward), and slept most of the night through. My relief is boundless, and my mood is vastly improved by a shower, some sleep of my own, and reading comments on fic (I'm soooo far behind responding to people!)

Hey folks. This is just a fast little note to let you know what's happening on my end. In short, Mum got the call for surgery, as there was a cancellation. She goes under sometime Friday, after which it's life on dialysis. I'm hopeful that the process towards home hemodialysis can be expedited, so that we'll not have to travel to Peace River every day (150 km). Anyway, if you've any good karma or thoughts to spare, we'd surely appreciate them over here.

ETA: for the minor amusement of [livejournal.com profile] traverse and [livejournal.com profile] mundungus42, I've begun All Things Bright and Beautiful, by James Herriot. The two of you know why I'm suppressing a decided smirk whilst reading.

Or, well, not so much with the thinky-thoughts, but rather an explanation of why I really really REALLY mean it when I thank you guys for reading and commenting. Those of you who are behind the friends-lock know what's been going on in my life over the past year (or thirteen, actually), and especially the past several days, so you'll appreciate, too, that in creating things that will be appreciated by others, I am also trying to create a version of 'me' that is valued, that will continue to exist (i.e., be valued by someone, live in someone else' head, have meaning to them) once my mother passes away -- because our identities are constructed, at least in part, out of how the people in our lives think about us.

ETA But also see my comment to [livejournal.com profile] gelsey -- you are definitely NOT OBLIGATED to ever comment my stuff. I just really appreciate it when people do.
