My mom - Mothers Day Giveaway
What makes my mom special? She is my rock, my friend and my supporter. My mom lives 1500 miles away, but I know any time of the day or night I can pick up the phone and talk to her - make it feel like she is right here with me. Unfortunately she has been going through some rough medical issues lately and I was lucky enough to be home when she needed me most. My dad was in a rehab facility for his knee and my mom was struggling - unbeknownst to her - she had major gall stones. I came home with my girls for spring break to spend time with them, and they needed me. I was able to shuttle my mom to her doctor and then to stay with her at the hospital when she had her emergency surgery for the gall bladder removal. It was almost like a reversal of role from back in 1993 - I was involved in a major car accident where I hit another car head on at about 55 mph. I ended up in the hospital for 7 days and home from school for nearly 2 months. My mom pushed me in a wheel chair from doctor to doctor - and here I was pushing her from doctor to doctor. God knew where I needed to be this spring break - I wouldn't have wanted to be anywhere else.
