What a TERRIBLE Weekend !!

Hydrangeas are my favorite flower . . . so delicate looking . . . but so able to stand up to bad weather etc . . . and such a sign to me that God is watching over us . . . and right now I really need to know that HE is . . . and I DO !!
'
I had the day off on Friday . . . and it was my birthday . . . I had planned to sleep in . . . then sew the entire day . . . that's how I wanted to spend my day !!
'
well I did sleep in . . . got up at 10:00 . . . put on the coffee and was going to sew right after that . . . decided to call to check on my 81 year old Mom . . . she sounded terrible . . . she said she was having one of her colitis attacks but that this one was worse than any she had ever had before . . .
'
I prepared to get dressed and get myself to her house . . . things just got worse over the next 30 minutes . . . long long story . . . just let me say . . . that we took her by ambulance to the local hospital . . .
'
we stayed there all day while they ran test after test . . . trying to figure this out . . . again long story . . . finally I called her gastroenterologist who happens to be at another hospital about 20 miles away . . . he said . . . "have her transferred over here . . . I am on duty all weekend" . . .
'
so at 4:30 p.m. that's what we did . . . put her into another ambulance and transferred her . . . then drove ourselves to that hospital . . . where they did more tests . . . and more tests . . .
I got home at 9:30 p.m. . . . HAPPY BIRTHDAY !!
'
actually . . . I really don't care about the birthday . . . hopefully I will get to celebrate another one next year . . . right now I just want my mother to get well . . .
'
it's been a really trying weekend . . . more tests . . . lots of procedures . . . and now it looks like she is going to need some major surgery . . . which needs to be done at a hospital in Boston . . . so she is looking at another ambulance ride . . . poor thing !!
'
we should know in the next hour or so just what she is going to be facing . . . so I'm praying like crazy . . . and just hoping it will all turn out good . . .
'
needless to say . . . no sewing this past weekend . . .
'
if you read this . . . please say a little prayer for her . . . thanks friends . . .
