'Thanks for coming'

Email

Mom was sick. I was at a work conference, even farther away than normal. As I kept in touch by phone I knew it was an infection. Pretty severe, but she was showing signs of improvement. The medication seemed to be working. Dad was a trooper. “We’re OK” was the message I was getting, but I suspected a cover-up. Those of us who are “daughters from a distance” know the guilt, worry and pain of not being able to be there.
