Kevin J Baird has not received any gifts yet
On the morning of the 23rd, I found my Mom sleeping and unresponsive to me trying to provide her with liquid. This wasn't too unusual, she tended to sometimes be unresponsive, so I let her sleep. The nurse called about her enema stuff and said she'd be over at 12:30pm.
