Putting it all in Perspective.




It's weird how one evening I can be watching an old Judy Garland movie with my mother and the next morning she can be having a heart attack. Things have gotten pretty surreal around here this week. I read somewhere that most people have heart attacks on Mondays. Not in my mother's case. This past Sunday my mother who is just a mere 53 years old had a heart attack and then once at the hospital she suffered a stroke. It is 1:26 am on Thursday and I am sitting here in the ICU typing and listening to my mother moan in her sleep. I truly believe that everything happens for a reason but I sit here in confusion. Maybe I shouldn't think about it to much, it will just make me more crazy. And nobody needs me to be any crazier, that's for sure. Puts a lot of stuff in perspective though....

Is it sick that I have to document everything......

My mom was in the hospital a couple of years ago for internal hemorrhaging so bad she needed a blood transfusion. It's horrible scary. I hope everything goes ok and gets better.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog in the middle of what must be a heart rendering time. I hope your mum makes a good recovery soon.
