Lots of Prayers

This weekend was supposed to be a wedding planning packed weekend. It still will be but just not as I pictured. My mom was going to be flying out of Madison at 6am this morning for my shower in Boston tomorrow. I planned for us to have my first dress fitting this evening and tomorrow we'd have the shower and on Sunday we'd be meeting with the flower lady to make some final decisions!

Well I got a call from my mom this morning telling me she couldn't make her flight and that she would try to get out on a later flight. And then she told me why....

Last evening my mom went to the ER with a very bad headache, they admitted her to the hospital right away and found out she has two blood clots in her brain. They don't have a lot of information right now but it seems everything is going to be ok. She cannot fly for a while but they're hopeful things will work out. It's been a pretty rough day for us thus far, but i've been able to talk to her a bunch of times while she's waiting for more and more test.

I'm going to hit the gym now, I'm feeling a bit dazed and think a good workout might help. We need a lot of prayers right now (and of course always)! She's going to be just fine and I can't wait to have her walk me down the aisle!!!

Love you momma!

oh my gosh Kimba-I'm so sorry to hear! mega prayers to your mom! I think the gym is probably perfect right about now. Always helps me out when I'm feeling super stressed as well.

Oh Kimba--praying for your Mom and your family. My Mom had a blood clot in her brain that they didn't catch---so I know it is good they caught them. My Mom ended up being fine and I know your Mom will too. Thinking of you.

That must have been very scary Kimba. In fact, I imagine it's still very scary. I am thinking and praying for you and your mom.

I hope that all will be well with your mother. Blood clots are frightening (I live with DVT). No flying is not a good thing and hopefull with the treatment she will be back to her wonderful Kimba Mamma self. Many prayers her way and yours.
