Not the week I expected

Hello from Ogunquit, ME friends!  After waiting all summer long to go on vacation,  we are finally here.   We almost didn't make it.  This has been a horrible week.  Thursday morning while at work I got a phone call from my aunt. My mom was being rushed to the hospital.  She was having a heart attack.  I jumped in my car and somehow made the hour and a half drive to the hospital she was at.   Let me tell you,  there was a lot of crying and a lot of praying in that hour and a half drive.

When I got to the hospital, mom had just come out of the cath lab.  2 of the arteries were 100% blocked and they had put in 2 stents.  Apparently mom had been having chest pain since 10pm the night before.  I stayed with her at the hospital until about 6:30pm when she basically kicked me out of her room and told me she wanted me to go home to my boys.  She looked pretty good for a woman who just had a heart attack and she was in good spirits so I reluctantly agreed (and also because 2 of aunts were there with her and my dad was on his way).  She came home yesterday and is doing well.  I asked her if I could come out and help...clean, cook, whatever but she said ABSOLUTELY NOT and she would be extremely upset if we cancelled our vacation.

So here we are, on vacation.   I am still scared and nervous for my mom, but I am feeling a little better with each passing day.  I love her so much and I am so greatful she is OK.  It was bad, but it definitely could have been worse.  If you feel so inclined, please say a prayer for my mom for a speedy recovery.

Ok, enough of the sad stuff!  Some good stuff happened too!  Yesterday was Nick's first soccer game and he scored a goal!  He also looked totally adorable in his soccer uniform.

Our first day of vacation has been great!  Both kids did very well on the 4 hour ride.   The house we rented is simply adorable.   We hit the beach today and the kids had a blast!  Filled my heart with such joy!  And we had some delicious mexican food tonight!

Sorry there are no phone is having issues and I can't get them to upload.   Hopefully tomorrow.   Good night friends.  Wishing you all a wonderful week!
