What???!!!

.
.
My conversation with the medical team went something like this =
.
" yes nurse...What??? I can hear you VERY clearly errr.... what?! ...what?! oh no...my mother has what??? ...what??? Can you spell that...what-what??? -what!!! ...let me google it!"
.
the 'what' is actually = Streptococcus viridans
(definitely NEW words for me...much more difficult
than Christian Louboutin...for sure!!!)
.
Some of you might have heard that my mommie dearest was admitted to the hospital for about 7 dreadful days! err...Good or bad news first??? bad news is that Streptococcus Viridans 'thingie' is attacking her heart!!! the good news is that she is fighting that 'thingie' now... Somewhat compelled to share some of very personal life that have been stirring for the past several days, perhaps crack the door open a bit more & be more personal in the blogland???
Glad to say that my dear mother is now out of the hospital and in the best environment possible for healing & recovering; surrounded by her family, friends and her beloved pets filtering in and out insuring that she is not alone. Home sweet home (& NO MORE hospital food!!!)and we have seen her sweet smiles again… even heard some bitchy remarks addressed to my dad…(her usual target!) that’s real good news people! She is baccck & bitchin'! Still, it will be quite a long journey before she is fully recovered… She is continuing very intense treatments for the next 10 days. Above all, she remains in good spirits and continues to handle this very tough situation with grace! errr…well...most of the time at least…~Thank you, everyone, through your prayers and well wishes.
~Much LOVE to all!

...just a quick update on what my family has been going through at the moment, hopefully will make all of us take a moment and appreciate life... its vulnerability & fragility too...~shall we...
Shall also post more beautiful-fabulous posts real soon...but I think this is quite a beautiful post...& I'm sure my mom would agree!

Sorry your Mother has been ill. That sounds serious. Hope she regains her strength soon. That's not a easy time when some family member is ill. Take care of yourself through this so you don't get ill.

Love your blog! Where do you find such great photos? They are such fun.

Sending good thoughts your mom's way. I hope the snippy comments keep coming to show she is getting stronger day by day. Take good care of yourself and know all your blog friends are with you in spirit.

Erin said...

I'm glad she's recovering. I know, it's not easy to have a sick mom. Cherish all the time with your family. I found that the bright side of having an illness in the family is how it brings the family together and really makes you appreciate the ordinary bits of family life. I hope she gets well soon, and make sure you take care of yourself as well!

Electro Geisha said...

Oh gosh I do hope she's continuing to fight and is regaining her strength each day... it's really good that your family is there for her. I think that's one of the fastest ways for anyone to get better. When they feel loved. You take care of yourself too ya?
