...it's not dark yet, but it's gettin' there...

Say a prayer.

My mom is ill, i am leaving for L.A. to go see her right now. Any kind thoughts sent up above on her behalf would be very much appreciated. Thanks.

Update: My mom is doing okay. She had a heart attack, which they tell me was minor. She underwent angioplasty with the balloon and they are going to keep her under observation for a few days. Thankfully, she didn't need surgery, which was my great fear. i already went through that twice with my dad.

It was scary for me because i drove six hours to get down to L.A. from Sacramento and i was pretty much in the dark until i got here. But i was so relieved to find her well and in good spirits when i arrived. Thank you to everyone who kept her in your thoughts and prayers. i know it helped.

Sometimes these events can serve as warnings and allow us to change our lifestyles, thus they turn out to be blessings in disguise. I pray that is one of those times, and that whatever stresses may have brought this on will be lessened by your mother knowing that she is loved and valued by her family and friends.

My thouughts and prayers are with you and her.
