A quick trip to Tucson

Last month Andy's Mom became extremely ill and was taken to the hospital. The doctors didn't know what was wrong with her and didn't know how to treat her. They ended up putting her in a medically induced coma. She wasn't doing well at all and they recommended to Andy's commanders that he go home to Tucson to see her. Soon after Amber and I were also on a plane to Tucson.
Well, Sarah started responding to the medications and they let her wake up. Before we knew it she was scooting around the hospital to prove to the nurses and doctors that she was ready to go home. Soon enough, they let her go. Her Dr. had never seen someone as sick as she was recover so fast. Well she got to come home and visit with a lot of her family and continued on the road to recovery. The doctors never identified what made her so sick that it almost killed her.
In the end it turned out to be a great trip. Although we went to Tucson under grim circumstances, we got to see Andy for almost two weeks and his family. Sarah is doing good now and Herb says that she keeps getting meaner, which is a good sign. It was great to see Andy a few weeks early, even if it was for less than two weeks. We also got to spend Thanksgiving in NM, we were there for a few short days but it was great. I'll post those pics soon.
Just brushing her teeth.
