Saturday dawned bright and early. I was nervous because it was the day of my bridal shower. My fear is that no one would show besides me and my hostesses. I was snappy. I was stressed out. It was Africa hot outside.
Then, I got a frantic call from my daddy on my cell. My mama was at a garage sale across the street from my parent’s house and had passed out. The ambulance was on its way..please hurry! Myron and I were coming from breakfast and were about to go get some mani-pedis at the nail shop. He turned the car around and we headed to my folks house. By the time I got there, my mama was on a stretcher in the ambulance getting checked out my the paramedics. She forget to to tell them that her potassium had been low. I told them. They wanted to take her to the hospital as a precaution anyway. So she went. This happened at 12 noon. My shower was at 4. What to do??
I started to cancel but Myron, my dad and my aunt told me not to. So I didn’t.
I’m glad I didn’t too. It was wonderful. I am blessed and loved. I was overwhelmed by the generousity of my friends and family.
My mom is OK, hopefully she will be getting released by the time this post runs. They ran tests and hopefully by the time the cardiologist comes Monday morning, we will have some answers.
So here is my shower…in pictures..and surrounded by love.
