Gut Rumbles

October 31, 2004


I woke up feeling a lot better today. Maybe it was that extra hour I had added to my life last night that did the trick. I missed that extra hour, because I slept right through it, but it must have done me some good.

I felt well enough to drive into town to visit Mama, so I did. Catfish lives along the way, so I stopped by to see him, too. I didn't stay long, because he has three new kittens in the house, and those sharp-clawed little fucks kept trying to climb my legs. I HATE cats.

This last round of chemo did a number on Mama. She spent eight days in the hospital because of the reaction she had to it. She won't know whether or not it did any good until next Tuesday. She's tough, but NOBODY is that tough. I hate to see this crap happening to her.

I also went by to deliver an apology that I owed her for something very wrong, very mean and very shameful that I said to her right before she ended up in the hospital. I shouldn't have done what I did, and I regret it deeply. Mama knows that fact now.

I love you, Mama. And I always will.


Lost my own Mama this summer to the big C.
It's a bitch but what the hell can ya' do?
They's put on this world to kick your ass until you make somethin' out of your own selves.
When you do, their job is done.

God bless your Mama. Hope she's OK. She's gonna leave you someday, just hope she's
ready for it.
And you too.

You're a good man to say it now.
NEVER put off saying you're sorry to your Mama. Or any family.
I did. She died while I waited to say it in person.
Regrets are hell. Every day.
