Well, today has been fun....NOT!!!
Mom is okay now, but she scared the craponie out of us this morning.
She had a reaction to the pain medication they gave her and stopped breathing and turned blue.
I was screaming for help and shaking her and yelling "Mom wake up" and she was not responding. I am crying just writing this as I have NEVER BEEN SO SCARED!
They actually had to call a code on her and everything and we almost lost her! She is now in ICU.
She is stable now, but in a lot of pain for the bulging disk as they had to give her something to counter the pain meds that she was reacting too.
Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers....keep them coming. We are not out of the woods yet and I will keep you all updated! Thank goodness for wireless at the hospital.
Reading all your comments helps when I cannot be in there with her!
Now go hug someone for me and tell them you love them.
Life is too short!!

Awwww, Jenny, how your poor heart must have been racing and the room spinning. You poor girl. I will pray and pray for comfort for your mother and peace for your exhausted body and soul.

Hey Sweetie,

Glad things have calmed down. Talked to Sam. He was going to get keys from Gail and make copies. I'll be at the shop tomorrow at 2:30ish until closing and Friday from 1 to 4. We'll figure out where to go from there. Between me and Sam, we can fill in when Gail can't be there.

I'll check on you in the morning!

Dear Jenny, I am just now catching up and I am so sorry to hear of this terrible scare! Thank goodness everything is now stable and that your Mom is feeling better.
