Crazy week!!

Well, it has been a crazy week! It's funny how things can change in just a matter of minutes. We were having a great time at school Thursday because some of the Tennessee Titans came to talk to the students and soon after the program was over, I received a call from my mom who was very upset. To make a long story short, she had been feeling bad for a while and knew she had a hernia that needed addressed, but she had no idea the seriousness of it. She had a ct scan earlier in the week and once it reached UT hospital, they were calling telling her to get over there immediately. Mom couldn't tell me details or exactly why, so I was very upset. Of course you think the worst and all I had on my mind was that they had probably found cancer. I left school and picked mom up and took her straight over there. The hernia was close to cutting off blood supply which meant she had to go into surgery immediately. The doctor was very to the point. She told mom that if they didn't, she could die. They were prepping her for surgery within 30 minutes of us arriving. Needless to say, I was an emotional wreck! There were a lot of things that could have went wrong once they got in there and looked at it, but it ended up being the best case scenario. The surgery was over in an hour and the problem was taken care of. She will definitely have to take it easy for a while, but thank God she is going to be ok. Mom doesn't always have the best of luck when it comes to surgery, so we were very thankful that this one went smoothly.

Now, to orders and emails. I am behind, but now that mom is back home, I can get back to work.

I need to give a big shout out to Lynn, Shirley, and Jim for being there with us at the hospital. It meant a lot to have your support! I am very thankful!
