I have not been online or posting because this week my mom was at the Senior Center for lunch and just passed out in the chair. They called 911 and I have spent everyday with her at the hospital before and after work (after that first day).
Her 85th birthday is tomorrow and we hope she will be going home today, they have been doing tests to find out WHY it happened. It was NOT a heartattack or stroke they think her heart may be working to slow and we will have a better idea today after the corroted artery test yesterday morning and the echocardiogram last night.
Please add her to your prayers, she is my hero. She has been such a strong woman all my life and to see her fragile and frail now with these problems and her alzheimers it's really a hard thing to watch. She and I have been so close all my life I am truly a blessed daughter!
Tomorrow (Saturday), Hubby and I will be working on the Craft Fair projects and then taking her to birthday dinner to celebrate.
I hope your week is going wonderfully and that you have time to be creative!
UPDATE for 9/21/12
Mom went home today- it was the medications
causing her heart rate to drop so low- all is fixed meds are changed or eliminated and her heart rate
is almost double what it was! The Echo did find a hole in her heart
from birth and the cardiologist said more than likely that is why she is
having strokes- blood clots are getting in her heart because the
membrane never grew over it (on the atrium) so next week we see the
doctor to discuss surgery to fix it- NOT open heart stuff, something
similar to an angioplast type surgery placing a disc around the hole and
closing it off - wow please let the stress decrease for us as
tomorrow/Saturday the 22nd is her 85th birthday!
A VERY long time ago, I promised complete photos of this mini journal and totally forgot to post them
Well, here you go! Page by page! Just click on the photo to see it
This was a fun book to create but took a lot of hours. All supplies are Stampin Up either current or retired.
I started out with an idea and had to go from there to get it finished! I still have some stamping with heat embossing I want to do but just can't seem to fit it into my schedule. I am thinking of selling it at the craft fair coming up but not for sure yet. I doubt people will want to pay what its worth!
Have a creative and fun day!

So, you may have noticed that even though the election is just weeks away, the media hasn't managed (although I'm sure it has tried) to uncover any "dirt" on Romney. If they had, I assure you, we'd be hearing about it CONSTANTLY.
Here's what they also haven't managed to report on - the unbelievable generosity and decency that seems to define Mitt Romney. Watch/listen to this story all the way to the end, you guys. And then ask yourself why you haven't heard more about it.
I think the answer's pretty obvious, don't you? (by Chicks on the Right from Facebook) BE SURE TO WATCH IT THROUGH TO THE END AND SHARE WITH YOUR FRIENDS!
This is WHY he doesnt give numbers of what he is going to do before he is elected- he has to KNOW THE EXACT NUMBERS FIRST before he can make a plan! Now THAT is what a REAL business man does and another reason I KNOW that Mitt will make a great president! - Gwen
