Update x2: No word yet. I registered my mom with the U.S. Department of State and ICRC. I passed my mothers cell number onto Flambelicious but the phone was off. More waiting. My step dad added the to the Google person finder. We’re still just worrying and waiting. I added a photo of them. Feel free to distribute to anyone you think might be helpful.

I hope it’s okay to bump my own post like tjis. It’s the easiest way for me to try and make sure everyone who commented sees the updates.

I woke up this morning to a message from my great aunt asking if we had heard from my mother. I had no idea why she was messaging me. Then I found out about the quake.

My mother and little sister live somewhere in or near Kathmandu. At this point no one has heard from them. Phone and email are spotty as all hell and I’m just stuck in limbo waiting. I’m out of town for the weekend with my husband at a college reunion thing and all I want to do is sit around reading online at wishing for news.

I’m worried as all hell and trying not to drive myself into a panic attack. I’ll appreciate good thoughts or prayers if you do that. Thanks.
