….I’ve been a bit absent this summer.
My momba got sick in early June.
Let me start by saying that she’s doing MUCHO better now… though, it’s been quite the scary summer full of unknowns.
I got a phone call from my mom the morning of June 1st. She could barely breath, “Hey Bobbi….. just….. wanted….. you to….. know that…. I…. admitted…. myself to the…. emergency…. room at 3…..this morning.” UHM… WHAT?! You see, my family isn’t a “going to the doctor” kind of family let alone a “check yourself into the emergency room at 3am in the morning” kind of family! This was serious. I, without hesitation, headed to the hospital immediately.
I found her room, she was resting and couldn’t hear me. Seeing her in that state at the hospital was an image that I’ll carry with me forever… an image that I would rather not carry with me forever. It was awful… and had a major impact on me. I left the room and called my Aunt Karen sobbing, “I’m not sure I’m strong enough to handle this!” The thought of losing my mom…. man oh man. Awful.
As a side note, my mother was admitted to the hospital the day before Emily and Matt’s wedding… remember the outdoor/tent wedding with the funnel cloud and 90mph winds? Yeah, that one. That should help explain why I was under the table and crying, fearing for my life. I kept saying, “I just want to see my mom…” Those were the absolute worst/most scary few days of my life.
Needless to say, I’ve been spending a lot of time both taking care of and laughing with her. 😀 I chose to not take on any extra sessions than I already had scheduled and I haven’t dedicated time to social media/personal blogging. So to those who follow me on Twitter or Facebook, I’m alive!
My mom has since made a complete lifestyle change and things are looking WAY up. WAY WAY WAYYYY UP! She successfully started back to work on Wednesday after being off for over three months. 😀
Here’s her favorite part… her first day of college starts Monday! We got her all registered last week. YES YES YES YES YES! She keeps saying, “I’m SO excited! SO EXCIIIIIIITED! I mean… I’m nervosa too, but I’m SO EXCITED!” By the way, in Momba language, nervosa = nervous.
You know, regardless of her health, we’ve had more fun this summer than I think we’ve ever had, and that’s sayin’ something! 🙂 The highlight? WE SAW PAUL McCARTNEY LIVE!!!! ….more on that later. 😀
Blog posts with weddings are coming next week 🙂 Stay tuned!
Oh and Momba, please don’t get sick again because that sucked.
I love you, BIG time! 😀
