Make My Mom’s Day

Hey friends!

My mom is a trooper.  She got done with chemo for Hodgkins Disease for the SECOND time only to fall and break her hip.  She’s now sequestered to a couch.  It’s the worst.  On top of that she’s taking a LOT of opiates and they make her really loopy.  She’s super bored.  She really hates relying on other people and not being able to go outside (she is my mom after all).  I don’t really know how to make this better other than to have my friends send her notes and postcards.  All you’d have to do is send a postcard or card that says you’re a friend of mine and you hope she gets better soon.  In fact YOU don’t even have to send and stamp a letter–you can do it online and sites will do it for you.  I suggest:

If you are interested in helping out by sending her a card, send me an email or comment here and I’ll send you her address.  I really appreciate it!

    Jenny, I would happily send her some Oregon postcards, which will at least give her new imagery for the opiate trips! 🙂
