Subject: RE: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
Wishing a measure of coolth, to all y'all experiencing high summer right now!

Well remember that those first holidays are particularly poignant, Nigel. It is when all the family is gathered round that the empty chairs are most evident, especially those just recently vacant.

May you dwell in your hearts.

Hope Tommy can sense he is surrounded by people pulling for him, our hearts raised in full chorus together for comfort and hope.

Not a big deal, but if you have a few random good intentions to spare, will ask they be directed to my mother, who is having knee replacement surgery tomorrow. No problems anticipated, and hopeful her quality of life will soon be significantly improved. She has no health problems unusual for some one of her age, but she is in her mid 80's with some kidney, hypertension and mild cardiac issues that are not uncommon at her age. The risks of anesthesia is always a bit higher for elderly patients than for younger patients. My nephew happens to be an anesthesiologist, and while he is not the attending, he has arranged to be there, and the nurse anesthetist attending will be the second wife of my brother-in-law (my deceased sister's husband and father to my nephews, and himself an anesthesiologist.) She is in as good hands as anyone could want, and I even feel silly asking for any energy from you at all - but this is my beloved mother, eh? I figure y'all will forgive me and also indulge me my brief anxiety.
