With Mom in Saint Joseph's Hospital

All is well for now from Saint Joe's in Bellingham. Mom had a mini- stroke early yesterday morning. Teresa did just the right thing and called the EMTs, who medivac-d Mom from Orcas to Bellingham, as I was simultaneously driving northward for an hour and a half to meet her in the E.R. She has had a moderately high heart rate, and is on 4 liters of O2. Has negative CAT scan and X-rays. Doctor Kim, her ER doc, offered her a carotid ultrasound or an MRI; she declined, as he said they would probably not tell us more. She is stable and lucid, feisty and clear as a bell, and there have been no other strokes here. Dr. Kim thinks she can go home tomorrow. I am flared up from sleeping on the Horrific Torture Couch of Hell here, and about to go mad from the fact that I can't have any sleep, they really do come in for some reason every five or ten minutes and they all shout. I spent nearly two weeks in Swedish Hospital with Mom in April, and two weeks two years ago, and did fine, but then again I had cots with some sort of back support. I may not make it another night here, I am in so much pain, and so sleep-deprived that I am near tears. I may have to go to a hotel at least while she sleeps. I hate leaving her but...yeah... It has been a very tough summer, with being fired two times, publicly and embarrassingly, and the other struggles that we have had. I am very low. Trusting that God can pull us back out of this tunnel, as is God's wont. I miss normal, or what passes for it in our crazy life. Terry is in three plays back to back until February. I have no job prospects, and a beautiful movie that has not sold. Yeah.

I was hired Thursday afternoon as Script Supervisor on a new feature film, "One Square Mile" (now "Four Minute Mile"), and we are on set Sunday. Tomorrow. I am taking a 5 minute break to let my screaming neck be in a different position. Then back to prep. Not quite halfway through the script prep/breakdown, and have been working nonstop with a few hours of sleep, except for an hour last night at the meet-and-greet at the "W". I sure hope I get to sleep tonight...may not at this rate. But hey that is what organic energy drinks are for. Back to it. It is a whale of a lot of responsibility but I am up to it...with God's help...I am pretty sure:)

Lots of News!

I have been too busy on JourneyQuest Season Two lately to blog, so sorry! We are three days from finishing the shoot, but as we finished early today (thank you Ben and Tony and Kat and crew):

That is the link to the great article Christianity Today published about the film online:)

and my first film "The Dark Horse" is now available on!

If you feel like reviewing the movie I would appreciate it . . . the distributor has not marketed it well, they are marketing it as a "horse movie" and a "kid movie", neither of which it is. It is a sad but triumphant story of a family's healing (with a B Plot involving a horse). Consequently many people who rented it in "Red Box" all across the USA are justifiably not happy, as they expected a "horse movie". We are very very sad about this.
