Happy Mother’s Day and rehab.

Hello my friends.  I have some excellent news.  My mom doesn’t have to have any surgery.  I did the happy dance for quite a while when I heard this news.  🙂

She has a fracture in her C1 vertebrae.  This is the vertebrae at the very top of our spine at the base of the brain.  She is going to be in a neck brace for quite a while but they are very optimistic about her recovery.  She has no swelling in this area and she has all motor function and sensation. 

They moved her to rehab today.  I talked to her on the phone a couple of times today.  She’s tired but is doing well all things considered.  She asked about me and Maddison the wonderdog when I wished her a happy mothers day.  I am so incredibly grateful that her injuries were not worse, but I feel so sorry for her right now.  She is in for a long and uncomfortable recovery.  I just wish I could wave a magic wand and make it all go away.  Since I can’t do that, I think the best thing I can do is keep a positive attitude and keep reminding her how much I love her. 

I didn’t make a J today.  I’m going to have to play catch up with the J’s but I promise I will be back on track with them very soon.  Not only do I want to remain committed to this project, but my mom wouldn’t want me to quit either. 

I just wanted to take the time to update you all and thank all of you who left comments and emailed me.  I am always so warmed by the kindness of others whenever some type of tragedy or emergency happens.  It continues to renew my faith in the human race.  I know there is more kindness than evil in this world.  This is such a comfort to me.  Thank you for being such awesome, incredible and absolutely glowing individuals.  Thank you for sharing your love and light with me!
