What a Horrible Week!

Everything was put on hold in my life when I received a call from my mom's doctor last Monday afternoon advising me that I needed to take her to the emergency department due to some blood test results she had received that morning. She underwent a blood transfusion while in emergency and received 2 pints of blood. I was there until 1:30 am. She was admitted and after a series of grueling tests was finally released last night. The procedure she had done ruled out the nasty things it could have been, thank God. We still have a bit of a mystery on our hands but she is now able to do the additional tests on an out patient basis. She is being closely monitored by her physicians so I am feeling confident that she is ok to be at home. Of course I'll be checking on her. I'm hopeful with some new medication my mom is now on the mend and with some careful diet hopefully she will get stronger and this will all be behind her. It has been an exhausting week and of course I was beside myself those first 24 hours. I'm feeling better today and had to do a little scrapbook therapy to unwind from the stress of the week. I also drew the name of the winner for my blog candy. Sorry for the delay ladies. Congratulations goes to Hayley! I'll be sure to get your prize to you as soon as possible girlfriend. Please keep my mom in your thoughts and thanks for stopping by!
