One day Anni was twirling and singing one of her original compositions.
"It's my gift!" she declared.
Dizzy, she fell with spectacular gracelessness.
Laying on her back on the tile floor she began flapping her arms and legs
as if she were making a snow angel.
"Falling down is also a gift!" says she.

Annika is having another bleed. She's in the ER here in town right now. I'm home packing a few things before we ambulance up to Chicago.

Delurking as well. I've been reading for a long time, and although I don't "really" know you, you, Annika, and the rest of the family have been in my thoughts the whole time.

But especially now. Good thoughts and prayers are coming your way.

Oh Moreena! No! Please know that you, Anni and the rest of the family are in my prayers. I have had Anni on my mind (and heart) so much lately . . . . .

Please when you are able to - let us know what is going on.

Crap! Sending thoughts and prayers for good drivers, great nurses, and wonder-working doctors. And anything else that I forgot that might help.
