Show and Share Day

It’s been a whirlwind week at JaG’s house, but I am soooo ready for Show and Share Day! I imagine most of you haven’t been in bed with the flu for the past week and got a LOT more done than I did.show and share day

Unfortunately, another issue keeping me busy this week is that my fantabulous mom had a heart attack. I contemplated even saying anything (no Debby Downers here!), but then I realized that it’s that many more prayers or positive thoughts I could solicit. And believe me…she’s worth it.

She’ll be having surgery tomorrow to assess the damage, but to say it shook me to my core would be an understatement. I’ve been posting updates on Twitter, and I’ll continue to do so.

Of course, having a bunch of talented blogs to peruse might keep my mind occupied. I’d love to see what’s been going on in blogland. Let’s begin, shall we?

Stephanie said...

I see where you get your beautiful eyes! Your momma of course. I hope everything goes well with the surgery, I'll be thinking of you.

Kristine said...

Just a comment to let you know you are not alone. I went through something similar with my mom last year. She had a triple bypass and is doing better now than the last 10 years. She has so much more energy and lost some weight. I know when you are going through something like this it feels like things will never get better - but they will. My thoughts are with you, your mom and your family.

Catherine said...

I'm sorry about what happened to your mom. Here are hopes and prayers that everything goes smoothly and she will have a quick recovery!

Prayers coming your way for a speedy recovery for mom!

Julie said...

It's my first time to your blog and how crazy that we have something in common. My Dad just had a heart attack a few weeks ago. Once they got in there with the little surgury they saw he was living on one artery. 2 of the 3 main arteries were block. They cleaned out his arteries and put in a few stints. He was home the next day. He feels better than before. I just wanted to share this with you to ease your mind a bit. Well wishes to you and your family. :)

Definitely keeping your mom and family in my thoughts.

JenniferO said...

You and your mom are in my prayers. My own mom is having surgery today, much less life threatening, repairing a torn rotator cuff in her shoulder. But still, anything like this shakes you. Nobody messes with the mom!

Sharon @ Decorating is Bliss said...

I'm sorry to hear about your mom. My dad had quadruple bypass when I was 20 so I can relate. You don't picture dealing with this kind of stuff as younger adult. I hope she is doing much better (and you too for that matter). From all of your pictures she seems like a sweet lady!

Have a great weekend!!
Sharon

My father has a significant heart condition. When he was diagnosed, they did some radical stuff on him. He was written up in medical journals about the procedures that had been done. And he is doing great now. This is a scary time but it will get better!

Amy@OCD: Obsessive Creative Disorder said...

My mom had a heart attack just over a year ago. I took her to the hospital ER (after telling her she had to take some aspirin before getting in my car) and they said she was fine and sent her back, I took her to a different hospital the next day and found out she was having a heart attack. She had to have double bypass surgery and was in the hospital for about 5 days. It was a hard thing to go through and took a couple months for her to get back to being herself, but she's great now! I'll keep you in my thoughts and prayers- it's terrifying to think of losing a parent at any age.
