    Dear Lisa,
    I hope you are holding up okay. I know it is so very difficult. I wish I was there to give you a giant hug.

    wish
    I wish we were both in a different boat, Lisa. Isn't it amazing that sometimes we are surprisingly calm and sometimes not? I am so sorry to hear that your mom has pneumonia. Where are you flying to? I am in the Chicago area if you need anything.

    hang tough
    Oh, dear, this is terrible news. However, my mother recovered from type A flu in Feb, so don't assume the worst quite yet.

    We and our mamas have been through so much in the last two years, but I think the numbness we're feeling now is really an openness to whatever comes. Call me if you want to talk.

    My mom grows more frail by the day, but she's doing okay. Last night she talked about how she wanted to die. She wants to give in to the tiredness, sleep more and more, and then sleep and not wake up. I think I would like that for myself, too.
