Called back to Louisiana

We knew when we left NJ and headed to NC, there was a good probability we would be called back to Louisiana due to the illness of Leonards mother.  We cleared this with our NOMADS leaders.

We got the call yesterday that Hospice said she would not live through the night.  We left NC at 5 pm and drove until 10.   Got up early this morning and was on the road at 5, arriving at her house around 2:30.  The house is full of family in and out all day.

Mom is in a heavy sleep as she has been for days.    The head Hospice nurse was here this afternoon and said he is surprised she lived last night and her strong will must be keeping her here.   There is a nurse here 24 hours a day now.  We know the time is short.  

We are thankful that we made it here in time.

We left the rig at Hinton Center in NC as the project is only in the first week of three.   We believe we will be back there by Sunday or early next week at the latest.   We are both tired and need some sleep soon.

Phyllis, I'm so sorry to read this, but Len's Mom has been so ill that it isn't a big surprise. I'm glad that you made it back to La safely and in time to see her again. You are good "kids" and I'm sure she appreciates you both. Rest and be with the family.
