U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann canceled a scheduled campaign appearance in St. Louis on Saturday for GOP Senate candidate Roy Blunt after being hospitalized with an undisclosed illness.

The 54-year-old Minnesota Republican, who is serving her second term in Congress and running for a third, apparently was admitted to a Washington-area hospital Friday with what her office described as a "sudden illness." She missed several votes on the Gulf oil spill just before the House adjourned for its August recess.

Bachmann spokesman Dave Dziok said she was in the hospital most of Friday and that doctors advised her to rest.

Now, that I have your attention....

Please say a little prayer for my Mom.

She's 92 and she's in the hospital for the second night.

She is a bit 'confused' and we know that it's time to sell her house and move her to safer surroundings...

Thank you, FReepers, for all of your prayers and support!!!

A friend of mine living in southern Missouri went to a town hall that was for Primary Election candidates for the Republican nomination. Blunt was so arrogant and condescending to the other candidates and talked WAY beyond the announced and agreed upon time limit that my friend walked out in disgust at Blunt's rude indifference.

I hope Congresswoman Bachmann is supremely successful in each and every one of her endeavors and slays the dragons of the licentious leftist!!! I remember Reagan saying that most of them ought to be arrested, tried and convicted of Grand Larceny!!! Ha Ha Ha!!!

Get well soon, Congresswoman and maybe it was divine providence that kept you away from this rude loser's campaign... I just don't know...

Been through some stuff like this with one of our parents, it’s hard becoming the decision maker.

Wow, that's the hardest slam-in-the-wall first-post spin of a subject I've ever seen.

And slick, too - a fusion of Bachman and your mom. Anyone objects, why, they're attacking your mom, aren't they? How terrible of them.

So let's just say that your spin was grossly inappropriate, eh? And - as you obviously intended - you totally destroyed at least the initial discussion of this thread.

Let alone the ability of anyone to read it with concern about Bachman, without being head-slammed with having to think about your mom at the same time.

I mean, now that I've got your attention... I wonder if Bachman's illness has anything to do with the fact that the entirety of the oh-so-peaceful Left hates and fears her?

Not that they'd EVER try do anything bad to her, of course. That's just wild-eyed Tea Party talk. Why, people haven't had to be afraid of things like that since... the Clinton years. And certainly there's no Clinton running for anything now. Right?

I am going through the same thing - been suspecting Mom has dementia for a while, now it’s official and she needs to move to “the city”. Hard for her to leave the acreage she’s lived on for 35 yrs, much less try to sell it.

Best of luck.

BTLD, I’m “an old hand” at it. If at all possible, bring the care to your mother in her home. Uprooting a 92-y/o parent is like uprooting a 92-y/o tree: too much insult/trauma to the body and likely life-shortening. Am honoring my parents’ wish to remain together & in their home, and it’s getting hard (89-y/o father, 82-y/o mother, both bedridden). However, it’s much cheaper (not inexpensive, though) than a nursing home to have health aides come to them. Have even managed to find a doctor, podiatrist, nurses, X-ray technician, phlebotomists, etc. who make house calls. Mother even had at-home chemo for ovarian cancer. Remodeled the master bath with no walls, dual floor drains, curtain for shower, grab bars. Widened doors and put in patio & walkway to get them out in a wheelchair. Brought in hospital beds & ceiling lift. Hard on the family, but ultimately a blessing.

Thanks....

My Dad set up a family trust years ago....

It’s handled. He made sure that Mom was taken care of, even if she couldn’t take care of herself.

A man of foresight.
