Feel Kinda 'Under'

No I don't mean 'down under' cos that's where I live - just kinda sad and disappointed in some ways that my 91yr old mum has to go through hysterectomy surgery in a couple weeks time.  I will be traveling to Auckland the day before her surgery to be with her and drive her to the hospital. I guess its just life isn't it but I have a feeling this might have consequences for her down the track a bit.  Will have to wait and see the results of the surgery and biopsy first though so I'd better not get too much ahead of myself.

As for life this past week - it's been busy. Saturday E18 grand-daughter hosted a 1 yr old party for her puppy. This is the first time I've heard of this kind of thing but then that's probably not unusual as we don't have a dog but it turned out really well and all the little doggie guests behaved really well. Then in the evening looked after the two littlest grandsons while their mum and dad went to a school fund-raiser Trivia night. It was a dress up affair - something beginning with 'B'.  They went as batman and batwoman. Looked great too!

About all for now - need something to pull me out of the doldrums - perhaps bible study in the morning will do it. I pray so!

I'm so sorry to hear about your mom's surgery. I don't blame you for being concerned, that's a lot for a woman her age. Heck, it's a lot for anyone to go through. I'll pray for a good outcome for her.

The doggy party sounds hilarious! I'd not hear of such a thing, but it sounds like a lot of fun.

And the costumes are great! I love having a reason to dress in costume -- doesn't happen very often!

All the best to your mum and hope she gets through the operation with flying colours. My mum passed away last Tuesday 31/08 she was 89.
