OT: Mom's OK

Many of you that were still around after the amazingly bad 7th inning on Thursday reading the game thread saw my post about my mother's heart attack Wednesday night/Thursday morning.  It wasn't something that I had planned on posting, but I'm sure some of the more "interesting" posts weren't planned, either . . . it was a release.

Mom should be able to go home on Monday and is doing well.  We played some Scrabble in her room after that 9-run outburst today, while we were watching the game.  Even on Thursday, Mom (who was a Milwaukee Braves fan even after she married Dad, a lifelong Cubs fan -- in 1957, no less) was curious to know how the Cardinals and Brewers had done.  Still, it was, and is, a very serious situation; it sounds like we were all lucky based on the severity of the event and lifestyle changes are in order -- I'm not making any social commentary, but decades of smoking didn't help.

Anyway, thanks to everyone for the kind words and prayers; those certainly haven't hurt.  Thanks to Iswaidz, who asked for an update in one of the threads; obviously here it is.

Now let's hope the Cubs go out Sunday night and complete the sweep.
