Well, my Mommy made it. YES! She's on a oxygen tank (not forever, just until her lung re-inflates... good grief, how dramatic), but no more pic line! She's very slowly improving. I say this with a lot of love for my family, and my mother- I'm hoping in the next year I can move out again. It has nothing to do with not liking them. It has to do with needing my own freedom, and if my Mom doesn't "need" me anymore, I'll be able to do that. But right now, I'm taking life as it comes- I just want to be normal!
