Mom is here

25 Feb

Mom arrived today. It felt so great to see her face at the entrance of the hospital. My mom here to be with me. It’s a privilege and a joy to share a week with my mom. I know it will help her to see the ins and outs of my treatment and care here. We started her out with a dose of hospital tonight. As I walked in the apartment today I got a call from my nurse informing me I needed both platelets and red blood. I had planned to pick up mom, but decided to get the process under way. I have learned from past experience this takes awhile here. It did not disappoint, and took awhile. Thankfully, I have made new friends who offered to pick up mom and help. Sadly, we missed out on birthday dinner for paige, and with new friends. After 5 hours at MD we walked into “home” with excitement for bed. It’s great to have mom here. I have looked forward to this week. I am blessed by a loving mom.

    Allie, it’s no surprise to me that you have new friends who are willing to help you in Houston. I believe you make friends very easily and are very easy to love.
    Enjoy your time with your mom. I’m praying for you daily – only now my prayers are coming from Aruba… Thank you for the updates you provide your friends through your blog. It helps us to know how to specifically pray for you…

    Allie,
    So excited that your Mom is with you…two spectacular women..that’s for sure! My heart sank when I heard Adam was home and I was hoping that someone was coming to be with you. There’s nothing like Mom to make things better.

    We are praying and following your journey. Stay strong and keep thinking all the positive things you can. I know you miss the girls terribly…and I’m sure they miss you too. But before long you’ll be reunited again.

    Please, please let me know if there is anything I can do to help out here.
    XOXO,
    Jamie

    An intriguing discussion is worth comment. I think that you should certainly write more on this topic, it may not be a taboo topic but typically people are not enough to speak on such topics. To the next. Cheers
