I am so disappointed, I could just cry!! The phone rang at 5:30am this morning and it was Mom. She was crying so it really scared me. She doesn't get to come home for a few more days. See the replacement cook is sick and can't come in for a few more days. She said she will get off sometime between Monday and Friday of this week. She has already been gone for 28 days so I know that she is ready to get off of that boat. We were going to celebrate Christmas with her tomorrow, but I guess we will have to reschedule it until next weekend. I had to make the trip down to Ashland anyway. She needed her medicine and a few more clothes. I just had to take them to the office and drop them off. She hadn't come in to the landing yet and was still coming through the Locks about 2 hours away. They will come in to the landing and change the crew, except for her and head back out again. I'm not sure where she will be when she gets off of the boat now, but they will drive her back to the main office and we will pick her up there.
