I found out the day before Thanksgiving that my mom had an abnormal electrocardiogram and will be going in to see a specialist on Tuesday. This wouldn’t be so worrisome if it weren’t for the fact that my mom’s brother died suddenly at the age of 40 and her nephew at 22 as a result of heart problems. Definitely put a big downer on my holiday especially since I’m spending time with my in-laws, which I enjoy, but I can’t stop thinking of my mommy. I couldn’t sleep last night even with an Ambien and considered doubling the dose given my anxiety. When I pray I very rarely ask for anything for myself. Usually I pray for others who are sick. Good health for my mom is the one thing I’ve asked for myself in years. If you could please keep my mom in your prayers too, she’s barely into her sixties with so much more life to experience. For anyone who’s laughed or cried or gleaned any bit of interest from my blog, please think of my mom who taught me so much, I would be eternally grateful.
