Antiseptic and Elevators

My mom has been in the hospital for over a week with an infection that her body is struggling to fight. Dad had surgery the Monday before and two days later was calling an ambulance to get mom.

It's been a very long week for both of them.

It's hard to watch your parents age. To watch them manage illness when it
isn't possible to cure it.

Wish I had something insightful to say, but I don't.

Sigh.
