Hey! So remember a few weeks ago I told y'all i would fill ya in on what's been going on right? I didn't forget it's just hard and a bit emotional to type it all out but here goes....
**WARNING this is going to be a long post get a cuppa something to enjoy**
In late April my Gma was hospitalized with congestive heart failure and we were told she would die. It was so hard watching such a strong woman that I love and admire greatly be in a hospital bed in pain and fighting to breath. But she fought and was released. She is doing well now thank goodness and is determined to prove the doctors wrong and out live everyone.
Then on Saturday May 4th my family's world was turned upside down when we got the call nobody should ever have to hear...She's been in a bad car accident and it does't look good.
Now onto this week... My parents were visiting Jessie on Tuesday night when my mom had a heart attack. Thank goodness she was at the rehab center and it's attached to the main hospital. The staff rushed her over to ER to be treated. On Wednesday we found out she has 2 blockages 1 is 80% the other is 95%. She will be treated with medication and change her lifestyle they couldn't put stints in because it wasn't an option. She is doing well today and should be home tomorrow.
So that's where I've been 3 different hospitals, 3 different cities, 3 ladies I love needing me for the last 3 months. All of this has changed our lives so much and made us stop to think what is truly important in life and that is family,the moments together, the stories, the time shared! Things have changed. My priorities have changed. I'm no longer working behind the scenes at Cocoa Daisy(i'm still on the DT), I'm enjoying the creating process and telling our stories, I'm spending lots and lots of time with my family, I'm smiling more, I'm here in the now and living for the now because you never know what tomorrow will bring.
I told you this would be a long post are you still here?
I know I probably should have shared some of this before but I still teeter on that line of what to share and how public to go with the personal stuff ya know? you can see that with this post some is there but not all the deets. Also the emotions were running at an all time high and I cried every time I started to type this up.
Some friends have asked how they can help or is there anything they could do?
Kim shared the idea with me.
Also I thought it would be fun for Jessie to get postcards or cards sent to her from around the world. She will be home bound for awhile and it's not going to be fun, she's going to need the cheering up and support. So if you would like to send a postcard or card email firstname.lastname@example.org and I will get the info to you.
I said with post 501 I would be doing a giveaway but since 3 is the number right now around here I am going to be giving away 3 postal packages filled with goodies. All you have to do is leave a comment and if you'd like a second entry become a follower of this blog(if you already follow just say hey I already do and you'll have a second entry).
