This morning early, I received a call from my brothers, my mom had a stroke and is in the hospital, we don't know anything yet. This is her second stroke, she has not been well. I am not at all sure how I can get to Portland, but I may be needed there so I am working on a place for Bella to be. For the moment I have to sit tight and wait for word. That is the hardest part. My mom hates me to blog about her, so for the most part I do not, but right now she needs prayers and good thoughts, so I am asking, it is all I can do in this moment. Thank you. XOXO
*UPDATE: I don't know much more except that she is okay, meaning, alive. They got most of the clot, but there was a bit they could not get which means she will have some problems. The part of her brain affected was speech and attention and her right side is impaired. She is still out and in ICU, so we just don't know anything real yet.
In times of great stress I am tested to try and stay in the moment, which is my spiritual practice, in an effort to not go into the future with all my fears and dread I am doing what I can in the moment. Checking in with the kennel for Bella, she needs some shots so in the morning I will call the vet. Also if I go I will need someone to take my paintings to the Taos Selects show, so I am getting them ready to hang and getting the paper work together. Also I will need money, so I will be listing more things on my ETSY site. These are really the only things I can do right now that can get me ready if I need to go. It helps to stay focused on what I know and what I can do. Being here NOW helps, it is the only thing that does.
Thank you so much for you prayers and sweet words. I will update this post as I know more.
