Mom's back in the hospital. The ICU this time, undergoing a blood transfusion. She lost blood because of an internal bleed of sorts. That's not exactly what it was, but I'll spare you the TMI.

I want to go visit her, but I've got to work tomorrow and there's no one to cover my shift. So I'll be heading out there after work, which means I get to worry myself sick while I pretend that I'm working.

All I really want to do is curl up and cry, but I can't. Everyone's home, and the last thing I want is to be asked a bunch of questions. Is everything alright? Is your Mom okay? Are you okay? Do you want to talk about it? Let's see... No, no, no, and no.
