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 pics...my phone is having issues and I can't get them to upload. Hopefully tomorrow. Good night friends. Wishing you all a wonderful week!
