First of all, thank you everyone for the continued prayers and support for mom. She is doing well. The Surgeon who originally cared for her 17 yrs ago , took over her case yesterday. Called dad at home to have consent signed and completed the procedure to permanently place the shunt last evening. Mom
sailed through her surgery and is doing well. Could be back home as early as next week!
The stress of the past few weeks has had an odd effect,I find I am not sleeping much and my mind is racing (pretty normal) but the thing that I have found most calming in the wee hours of the night , is writing!
An idea will pop into my head and I will jot it down , and mull it over .Soon enough I have written another poem! SO forgive me if I deluge you all with poetry over the next while , they are random and pop into my head , well, just when they do . For now here is one that "hit me " while driving yesterday
Lessons From Nature
If we listen to Gods creatures
We find they are amazing teachers
You rarely see a stressed out cat
Or for that fact a sunburned bat
Squirrels know to plan ahead
and are never short a safe warm bed
A momma bear cares for her babies
Protects them ,no ifs ands or maybes
Unconditional love , most folks can't reach it
and yet a good kind dog can teach it
Yet some people tear others to pieces
and call ourselves the wiser species?
