There is something to be said for my being born when I was (also having a natively geeky bent to me didn't hurt either).

Sorry to hear that bubba. I have enjoyed your posts for a while now. Just said a prayer for her and your family that she either passes quickly/peacefully or gets better ASAP. Having gone through my Mother's sickness/death, I feel for you. Take care of yourself as well as your Mom/Family.
