My mom called from my driveway yesterday afternoon. So the surprise has come and gone. She actually got to town on Sunday and proceeded to go see her ex husband. I won’t get into any details there, but it didn’t go as planned. I’m hoping that she can recuperate a bit this week before she heads back to AL. She’s going to come stay with me for a while after she packs up and hands off her caretaker duties to the rest of the family.
