Debbie just called me and told me my Mom is scheduled to have a heart valve replacement next Tuesday. With all that is going on, it's something that I just don't want to have to think about. I want forget it in the bustle of my life, and pretend it isn't happening. I know that I should go see my parents before the surgery, but I sure would like to avoid it. It's not that I don't love my parents. I don't want to see them getting old and having these problems.
