Oh My! It's Been a Little Over a Year!

Oh My! It's Been a Little Over a Year!

Hello Everyone!

I did not realize that it has been so long since I have written.  I have a been so busy! My poor "little mama's" had been SO sick.  She had been in and out of the hospital and three times she was put on a respirator.  Each hospital trip would last from 2-3 weeks long.  Needless to say I had my hands full being her only living child.  It turns out my mom has Congestive Heart Failure (CHF).  After further test, it was revealed that one of my mom's valve's was not working; she needed a mitral valve replacement and bypass.  In essence, she needed open heart surgery! I can only imagine how she felt but I know I was scared stiff.  Her faith was strong but I have to admit mine faltered a few times.  I thank GOD for all the people who gave me strength, who prayed for my mom and I.  I rallied myself and prayer more and more knowing that hears me always.  If His will was for her to go to paradise, as selfish that I felt, then I was ok with that too.Her open heart surgery was a success! She spent 5 days in ICU after her open heart surgery and 3 days in a regular room.  From there, she spent a little over a month in rehab before finally coming home at the end of November.  Her healing has been slow and steady but her determination to live and get better is strong.  Now, I know where I get it from! ;-)
