This weekend it hit me for the first time. As I am getting older, so are my parents. Not like I didn’t know that before, but seeing my mom in the hospital just aged her a couple of years to me. She has been in so much pain for the last three weeks and they discovered she had a gall stone. It was the size of a small baking potato so no wonder she was hurting so bad. The surgeon ended up taking the whole gall bladder out so she if finally feeling much better. She is home and working her way up to eating solid foods. It was tough for me to see her like that and to realize that time can be the enemy to those who are older than me. As for me, I plan to live forever!!!
