Another Theraputic Moment....

Many of my friends know that I also use this blog as my theraputic outlet. It does help, I suggest that if you have a blog use it!!!

Last week we were told that my mother has 2 brain aneurisms. Not good. After a few appointments we are in the final stages of finding out how they are going to be removed. I won't go into the side effects, I will start to cry....again. Tomorrow we will get the readings of the EEG and go into to do a Angiogram to see the blood vessels more clearly and how the aneurisms are attached. They could burst/rupture at any moment, we just pray that they don't and she comes through the surgery/procedure without any side effects.

I don't know why I am deciding to post this. I guess just to vent. I don't think is fair to me, my family and most of all to my mommy. She hasn't had the best life. God knows all of us (her children) have put her through plenty. She is the glue that holds us together. The very thought of losing her is going to be very devistating to all of us.

Blakey needs him's Nana!!! And so does everyone else. Who will make Goose the worlds largest chocolate chip pancakes and cook us brownies for dinner and peach cobbler for dessert? What other mom in the world keeps a stash of king sized candy bars and tons of packages of Klondike bars in the freezer? And to use those as torpedoes coming in at your head while sitting on her couch watching t.v. And after the near miss knock out, yell at you for not paying attention or that she thought you were looking. LOl!!! She is the funniest lady in the WORLD!!! She has the personality of Rose off of the golden girls.

I just love her to pieces!!!! Let's hope tomorrow brings us closer to getting through this next (NOT FINAL) chapter in my moms life.

Mom,
After everything is over and alright, I will let you use the excuse of having this "brian thingy" as long as you want.

I love my mommy!!!

OMG Carrie! I am so sorry to hear about your mom! It brought tears to my eyes because my mom is the glue in our family too and my boys call her Nana as well. I will be praying extra hard for your mom. Email/IM me if you need to talk. {{{HUGS}}}

Oh my goodness Carrie! I am so sorry to hear about your mom! I am crying just reading this! It sounds like you have the same bond with your mom as I do to mine! I want to let you know that you, your mom, and your family are in my prayers! I pray God helps you get past this stepping stone in life, and that you continue to make many more wonderful memories with your mom!
Sending you LOTS of hugs!
