Hello bloggy friends:
If you’re a regular reader to this blog, you know that my aunt passed away earlier this month. My mom, sister and uncle are going to the UK this week to attend the funeral services.
Yesterday, Julie received a very sad call about her mom – also known as Maya’s Granny. Julie’s mom is currently suffering the effects of congestive heart failure and, after a series of events, had to be flown from Juneau to Anchorage, Alaska for tests and treatment. Julie hopped on a plane this morning to Anchorage so she can help out (her brother flew with Julie’s mom in an Air Ambulance last night after they were able to stabilize her heart rate and breathing).
The only word we have is that her mom is in stable condition and the doctors are going to run some tests to determine the best course of treatment. Unfortunately, Julie has a very long layover in Seattle and won’t arrive in Anchorage until 8:30pm (She left Oakland at 10:30am). Needless to say, Julie is very upset, but I think being with her mom and brother during this crisis is better than being so far away and anxiously awaiting any kind of news.
Because of all this, I’ll be taking some time away from this bloggy thing and the Popdose bloggy thing as well…
