Family time

We got news 3 weeks ago my mother had been sick with the flu. Turned out is wasn't the flu, but a spot on her lung was found. They thought she might have pneumonia. Turns out it was not pneumonia, but non small cell cancer. Not knowing the stage, we took a quick trip to Seattle to visit.
Her strength was down after 4 days of flu symptoms and a week in the hospital. She was still in the Rehab Center, but was released within days of our arrival. Once she got home, she started improving daily. We were able to take a four generations photo.
It was beautiful weather the whole week we were there. Not usually that nice in June. We took a morning to visit the Seattle Waterfront, Pike Place, Ye Olde Curiosity Shop, Seattle Aquarium and waterfront shops until we decided we'd seen enough. Was nice to be "home" even though I haven't lived there in over 40 years.

Mom passed away in November. Lung cancer is a horrible way to die. She gave it a good fight, but is now with Dad again.
