Phone Chat with Mom
I called mom last night after untangling a fraudulent post on her Visa. At least I don’t think she was in a town, one lake over, and 25 miles away, in a bank she doesn’t hold any accounts in, making a $25 withdrawal on her credit card… Bottom line, the card is being reissued, just in case, and the charges are all reversed, for the moment!
She sounded Really good! She only repeated questions regarding the credit card snafu, but was otherwise steady, kind, interested, and well, kinda normal sounding. Yes, it’s these sort of conversations that, in the past, made me doubt the depths of her illness. Now I’m able to steep in the near normalcy of the moment, not read anything into it, but simply enjoy those 20 minutes, fully.
