But as they headed over to my house to get me, my mom had serious asthma attack. This is becoming more and more common for her and it is really stressful for her (obviously) as well as my Dad. She has a nebulizer for these occasions but a fuse had blown in the car and they couldn't get the machine to work...so it was off to the ER.
She is doing fine now but they have decided to stay a bit longer in Arizona since the cold air here in Utah is so hard on her lungs. I (or one of my siblings) will help them drive back later in the spring.
It was just another reminder of the preciousness of life and enjoying the time I have with my parents. It's the main reason I moved to Utah after all!
I mentioned a while back that I was making a surprise for my mom.
Originally I was thinking I would give it to her at Mother's Day but I decided that life is too short to wait...so I gave it to her today.
My mom kept a blog for a few years and she really enjoyed doing it.
She gets a lot of joy right now from her memories so I decided to make her blog into a book that she could read over and over. She really doesn't go online anymore and I think she barely remembers keeping that blog...so it was a fun surprise for her.
She keeps saying "Did I take those pictures?"
"This brings back so many memories!"
She really loves it and I am so happy to give her this little gift.
I love my mom.
