I'm NOT asking ....WHAT NEXT?

I'm really not believing this. Yesterday morning, I get up and my laptop keeps saying "extremely low battery." Can't focus on that because I have to get to the vet where my Balto gets more tests. He cries like a baby. If I knew he wasn't so unhappy, it was almost cute. We are going to try some alternative meds. Health food stuff. I get him home where he is actually a bit lively (for him now.) I head to my pc.
Long story short, it's dead. DEAD. I go to drop it off for a replacement (long story) ... of course they have none. I'm still waiting for one. While the techs are debating the replacement versus fix, I get a call on my cell. My mother has had what they believe is a stroke! I rush to her, the hospital. She is admitted immediately. I have her purse with all of her information to check her in. As I dig through it, I find a card in it that I sent to her two years ago. She carries it with her. The nurses come to get me and tell me that they want me with her. We are there for seven hours. She hasn't had a stroke nor a heart attack but they are unsure as to WHAT has happened. We are given directions. She is so hungry (as the only thing we had had was breakfast). I took her to Longhorn, and we devoured baked potatoes (comfort food I guess) and hamburgers. I dropped her off and was immediately sick. I guess all the stress, the food quickly on an empty system. I came in and showered to get the feel of "sickness" off of me. I climbed into bed and as I drifted off to sleep I thought of my mother - who never gets teary like I do - with one tear in her eye saying to me....."If I die and go to heaven, I'm going to tell God to bless you because you surely deserve it." I really think He already has.

Dear friend, when it rains it pours. You have your hands and your heart full with so many things going on right now. I wish you strength and of course all my sincerest wishes for your loved ones to be well.

Boy, you're sure dealing with a lot these days. It makes my concerns seem trivial by comparison.

Wow, what an eventful life you've been having. And not in a very nice way lately either. As always, you and yours are in my prayers. Hugs and love.

Gosh, I'm so glad that it wasn't a stroke and hope your Mom is feeling totally better, pronto! How sweet that your Mom carried your card! I am just now commenting on the Balto pics, below! Wow! He's soooo pretty. I hope he's feeling better. I'm thinking of you (and Balto). *sigh*

I cant figure out how all those things seem to be able to hit us all at once. Things must get better for you soon. You are tough so hang with it and ride the storm.

The very same thing happened with my husband's grandmother a few weeks ago -- not a stroke, not a heart attack...took them days to find an answer.

When it rains, it pours, WFW. Hang in there. The fact that you have the perspective you do means that you've already won half the battle!

Awww gotta love Mom! I'm sorry you went through such a scary ordeal. I hope she continues to do well. I hope you get things worked out with the pooch and the computer too. When it rains it pours. Just remember the love is pouring down still too. I am so happy you found that card in your mother's purse. How sweet!

Oh goodness! My thoughts and prayers go to you for all this awful kind of stress. Glad both your dog and your Mom are doing better.

How stressful. What were her symptoms?
Take care of yourself, you are no good to Balto or your mom if you get sick. Get lots of rest and remember to eat.
Take care,
Jodi

Hang in there WFW! Sorry to hear about your tribulations. Shure hope yer Mom is better soon. Glad to hear she's eating. Glad yer back online to keep everyone posted. It is odd when you disappear for no reason and it makes people concerned. Not much ya can do about that when the 'puter dies though. Take Care!

When our parent becomes ill to the point that they are rushed to a hospital we suddenly realize that they may not always be around and how scary is that! And to get news of your beloved Balto at this same time, my own heart aches for you!
