I wanted to say a few words about my mom, whom some of you may know, because she often comments here on the blog (proving that mothers always have the ability to publicly embarrass their children, no matter how how old we are). She had a heart attack on Sunday morning and even though she sounded fine when we spoke Sunday evening, and told me not to worry, how can I not? Her husband got her to the hospital quickly and the blood thinners that she received right away helped. She had a stent put in today, and hopefully she will be able to go home in a few days. She is only 61 and still has much more to do, I think.
We have had our issues with each other over the years, and she has had a tough life. Things can be difficult sometimes with parent/child relationships but I am proud that we have managed to put our problems behind us and we have come to a better understanding of each other in the last few years. She has been a good grandmother also, making a herculean effort, despite many obstacles, to stay involved in her grandchildren's lives.
I am sure that she will be fine, but it couldn't hurt if you could throw a few extra positive thoughts her way.
