Friday Potpourri

Hello sweets
it's Friday again
and I am a little late on the draw today


thank you for all the wonderful comments on my sheepish post
you guys sure know how to lift a girl up



I will be honest with you 
while perusing Pinterest this week
I have been drawn to white
but I have also discovered that I am the beige girl
beige like burlap beige
too funny



I had these photos all chosen in my file
for today ~ then almost changed them 
after today's events




but decided to go with it
don't you just love this little window seat
it has been a dream of mine for a 
long long time
someday....
 back to today...

I rushed Mom to the hospital at 6am this morning
with severe abdominal pain

I have never ever ever seen her in that much pain
as her threshold is quite high
compared to wimpy me of course

so we get to Emerg and they scooped her up
and took the best care of her

tests for this and that
then rushed her into emergency surgery

she had an aneurysm on her aorta
that they have been watching for the last couple of years
and were waiting for it to get to a certain size
before they operated

well wait no more as it had ruptured
and now in danger


she made it through the surgery
and now we wait ~ she is not out of the woods yet
and we are hoping and praying

I spent some time this morning in the hospital chapel
and came out feeling a bit better

but more prayers will help
they always help,

xo
