We're taking a year off to travel! travel blog

We got a fairly early start the day after the engagement party. Our original plan was to leave early the next morning to drive to Ajo, Arizona. Unfortunately, we were not on the road for long before I heard from my sister that my mom was being taken to the ER. Since this was contrary to our wishes and the hospice plan I could not understand what was happening. And of course I was in the midst of traveling with sketchy communication. Thankfully my sister had everything under control.

When we arrived back in Alamogordo we told Kathy and Johnny that we would be staying for one more day while we figured out what to do. After hearing from my sister we elected to leave the next day.

Our travel day dawned clear and cold, and we were looking forward to being in the desert with warmth and sunshine. We spent the night in a Wal-Mart parking lot only a couple hours away from our destination. After a relaxing evening with a good dinner of leftover spaghetti (and a glass of wine) we had a good night, looking forward to seeing our friends in Ajo.

Alas, that was not to be. We were about halfway there when I heard from my sister that hospice felt the end was near and I needed to get back to Cincinnati.
