My mom is in the hospital with double pneumonia.  She told me on the phone this evening that she was refusing to be intubated, if it came to that.  She's having so much trouble breathing and she says its just not worth it, to make the effort. She sent my stepdad home, and she's there, in the ER, alone.  Has been in the ER since about 11 a.m., (it's after nine p.m. during the call) and they still don't have her in a room.  She's not even being propped up, so she can breathe better.

So of course I'm a basket case.  I want to go. But I've still got this sinus infection crap going on.  My car's tags are expired, and so is my drivers' license.

And out of the blue, Brent gets out of bed, puts his clothes on, and goes. He went to the hospital FOR ME, to make sure my mom is getting the breathing treatments she needs, the nebulizer, enough pillows, etc. 

How awesome is that?  I am so overwhelmed with gratitude right now.
