First thank you everyone for your kind thoughts and wishes.
An update on my mum. She is with my sister at my sister's house and is ready to go back home. She has promised to never try it again. My sister and I want to believe her and honestly I do. She is a very strong Christain woman, which is why this really shocked and upset me. As a troubled artist in my youth, thoughts have crossed my mind, but I never would seriously commit suicide. Because of MY upbringing.
Her and my sis will go back to the house over the upcoming weekend, and I have arranged for one of my mom's younger friends to stay with her for a few days. Mom has also agreed on counseling with a minister. Also going to check to see if her insurance covers a nurse coming to visit the house once a week. If anyone can think of anything else...
Other fronts-the opening of my show will happen soon. It goes up next week and have started to hang flyers around town. It's the big countdown. June 1 we hang it, June 8 is the official reception.
Last week was very emotional and full of the good and the bad. Melvin received some good news but I'll let him do the honors because it's his to do.
One of my son's goldfish died. Very bad.
The little man took it well. He wanted to help with the burial. I realize many people just flush fish, I don't have the heart. We had a proper funeral under the lilac tree and said a few words.
Over the weekend we almost lost another fish. I had an emergency cleaning of the bowl at 9pm, and the cat held a vigil for him overnight. I am happy to report the remaining fish named Sid is alive and well, thanks to Sid the cat for his prayers.
