What a week so far...

Yesterday I got a call from my mom during my lunch hour asking me to take her to the emergency room. She never wants to go to the doctor or hospital so I knew it was bad.

Long, long story short, she had her gallbladder removed today and she's doing much better. I'm taking care of her for a few days and giving her the rest she needs.

We were in the ER when we heard about the bombings in Boston, so tragic. I was very emotional this morning. All of the heartwarming stories of people helping runners and victims yesterday brings me to tears.

Hearing stories of love and heroism during tragic events like the bombing, the CT school shooting, 9/11...it reminds me that there is still so much good in the world, even while monsters commit these horrific acts. Prayers to the victims of yesterday and their families.

  2. Glad to hear she's on the mend

  3. Hope your mother makes a full recovery quickly!

  4. Praying for your mom! Hope she feels much better really soon!
