On Wednesday morning my mom got “the call.” She’s been in need of a new set of lungs for a while, and this Wednesday was the day her new lease on life began. Things are going very well for her!

Practically, what this means is that I will be out of the shop a whole lot over the next few months. I realize how important everyone’s jobs are, and I am going to do everything that I can to respect my obligations, but sometimes mom comes first.

It’s an honor and an amazingly fortunate experience.

Thanks for your understanding and your good wishes.
