a happy postscript

My aunt phoned this morning. She'd read the post below, about Mama. Apparently I made my aunt cry, too. My Aunt 'Zany' (I'm sure she'll approve of that pseudonym and won't be offended..... I hope!) is the youngest daughter I mentioned, who visits Mama several times a week. Aunt Zany wanted me to add something to the post I'd written.

When Zany visited the day after I did, she saw in Mama's visitor book that I'd stopped by. She prompted Mama by saying, "So Jelly came to see you yesterday?". Mama looked unsure for a moment, then replied brightly, "and the little one!".

She remembered. Such a small thing means so much.

My Mama is not going down without one hell of a fight.
