It’s been a rough week. My mom had her heart surgery and while she’s holding her own; it’s not an easy thing to recover from. Every day there have been emails and phone calls discussing every aspect of her recovery, and she remains in the ICU. Meanwhile… tomorrow we’re leaving for Puerto Vallarta, Mexico… a long anticipated vacation.
I just added a bunch of minutes to my International plan so that my aunt could call me whenever and however she needed to, but – of course – I am feeling a bit guilty about sitting on the beach sipping piña coladas while my mother sits in the hospital room.
But we need to go. My family is really ready for some time with each other to just be.
See you next week. xoxo
