Happy birthday, Mom.
This is her second birthday in the state hospital. We won't be visiting this year. It's too much of a trip to bring the baby and with the ongoing illnesses and Hubby's extra shifts, we can't make it. I feel guilty and relieved.
Peanut and I will call Mom tonight. He's sad because he thinks he's missing her birthday party. I tried to explain that there is no party since she's still sick. Sweet innocence of childhood.
