Just a quick note to let you know that things remain the same with mother. We are basically waiting on Tuesday. This will be the day of the open heart surgery to repair her right mitral valve. Which, excuse my language, has been regurgitating. That was straight from the diagnosis. She seems to getting a little more anxious and restless everyday while waiting. And understandably so. More pitiful still is to watch my daddy watch my momma. He wants to make it all go away for her. He wants to take her home. Tonight, we sisters, left them alone at the hospital to spend the night. We told them it was the honeymoon suite. And then I found the nearest restroom and had a meltdown. It was much needed so please don't think I want pity. It was a cleansing cry and I don't have to do those often. But sometimes nothing else will work. All we basically know factually is that open heart surgery will be performed on Tuesday to fix this problem. So, updates may be few and far between after this post. I'll be facebooking reports for those who have facebook. Just know that your prayers, those of you who know me and those of you who don't, are very much loved and appreciated by my family.

Lynn,
I can only imagine what your family is facing. It is going to be rough to see such a strong woman become weak after the surgery- just look ahead and know that God is in control and allow that to give you peace. I will continue to pray for Nana (and the doctors)and will pray EXTRA hard on Tuesday! God's Blessings to all of you! xoxo

Melt downs do a body good from time to time. Melt downs keep me sane these days. One day, we should plan a melt down together.
Love from Alabama and here's one big cyber hug headed your way!

Planning ahead for your child's Abercrombie & Fitchclothing for one year at a time provides an opportunity for those design-conscious moms to fully match the complete look at one Onitsuka Tigergiven point in time.
