Update on Mom!

Thank you all so much for your prayers!
I am so happy to report that Mom is home and doing well.  The Dr was very pleased with her progress.  During the healing process she can't be alone so right now my Mom's sister (my Aunt Betty) is staying with her and my cousin Joletta is helping also.  I can't thank them enough.

So where am I you ask??
Well a few of you know my daughter Ashleigh had planned a long Mother's Day weekend trip for her and I to 
Las Vegas!

At first news of Mom, the trip was off...but as the details emerged and I knew she was doing fine we rethought it all.  Ash has spent lots of $$ planning this and after speaking with my Mom and my family on the phone all agreed I should go.  I am cutting out the visit to Calif part and flying to Houston on Tue!

I call Mom daily and she is doing great.  Tired, as to be expected, but great!   I am enjoying this special time with my oldest daughter and so glad I was able to make the decision to come (and believe me it was a hard decision to make). 

So a big THANK YOU to my wonderful family and to all of you, my wonderful blogging friends.

I will have photos and stories later! 

Hugs,
Linda

I didn't spend any time in blogland this week, so missed the news of your mom until I saw this post.

Glad she is doing fairly well and that you and your daughter still got to make the long anticipated trip.

Happy Mother's Day!
