I have been gone

Sorry I haven't been able to post recently. We have been in Nebraska visiting friends & family and taking care of business.  I have had many distractions--the most important of which is that my mother, who we had taken to the hospital last Saturday, has not responded well to treatment and has become more ill since we left.

It was difficult to leave in the first place but Mom insisted we go, since she knew we had planned the trip before she went into the hospital.  So we went.  Then when her condition continued to deteriorate we were torn between returning home immediately and finishing our business in Nebraska.  Fortunately, several family members were caring for Mom in our absence so we knew she was in good hands.  After spending only one night with our daughter's family we felt it was absolutely necessary to return.   Jess' family has decided to come to Illinois soon, though, so it wasn't as difficult to say good-bye as it would have been otherwise.

We would very much appreciate your prayers for our family at this time.  Thank you.
