It’s been a rough week with my mom being in the ICU at Allegheny General Hospital in Pittsburgh. Yesterday I spent most of the day in bed recovering from exhaustion and fatigue, a sickness I didn’t think was real until this past week. Since we’re all grieving the (temporary) loss of our mom I watched home videos of the younger days when we were all together and healthy.
Here’s a clip from Easter 1987. Yours Truly is three, same age as JoJo is now. I grew up with my cousins and aunts and uncles… these are the same cousins, aunts and uncles that greeted me in the waiting room at 3 AM when I found out my mother had a stroke and drove from State College to Pittsburgh. 28 years later.
