God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

About Me

My photo
A Catholic who follows Rome & the Magisterium. I'm against gay "marriage", abortion, embryonic stem cell research, euthanasia, human cloning. Altar girls, Communion in the hand, Eucharistic Ministers and "Protestant" music in the Church doesn't bother me at all. A proud American retired submarine sailor. Our borders should be secured with a 10 ft. high fence topped by concertina wire with minefields out to 20 yards on both sides and an additional 10 yards filled with warning signs outside of that Let's get energy independent NOW! Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

My pityparty is in session....

So last night we get a phone call from my mother who is busy having a hallucination that she's leaving on a trip (it's because of things like that she's moved from California to an assisted living facility a mile and a half away from us in Texas).

She's brought back to planet Earth by talking to me, the folks at the facility are notified, during a followup conversation I'm told she'll be seeing a doctor today. Terrific.

Today comes, the doctor has her sent to a local hospital because of an abcessed sore on her back (the War Department informs me if it's bad enough in an elderly person it'll cause hallucinations).

Turns out its the same hospital the WD works at, she even winds up on the same floor.

Thank God for small favors.

A few moments ago the WD calls and tells me to call my mother ASAP as she is getting ready to walk out the door of her hospital room. I do, convince her she has to stay and the crisis is averted. God must have wanted the WD in that place and time for a reason. I guess.

I'm heading off to bed. The WD is a real rock that I can rely on and the assisted living facility is top shelf. They don't teach you how to handle crap like this when it comes along though. Back in the canoe club we'd have sarcastically dubbed it "an opportunity to excel". Noted.

A Pentecostal pastor I once knew used to say that every nail wonders why it has to get hammered and keeps wondering until it sees the structure it's a part of.

Thanks for listening. G'nite.
