Just a typical Mother's Day for me...

...I had this whole wonderful mother's day post ready for you guys on friday...but I guess life had other plans.  Friday, I took Mini to the doctor to have the mediport removed from her chest. (this is what has been used for the last 6 the doctors easy access to her veins during her monthly blood transfusions)  What was supposed to be a joyous celebration almost turned into a tragedy.  During the surgery a piece of the tubing came loose and became logged in her blood vessel...UGH!  She was rushed into emergency surgery and I'm happy to report all is well...But, what an ordeal...there I was all alone when the doctor came out to give me the news...all I heard him say was wah, wah, wah...wah, wah.  And we thought living with sickle cell, suffering two strokes, surviving two brain surgeries, getting monthly blood transfusions and then an un-related bone marrow transplant were dangerous?  Apparently not.

...So, this is what I did for myself for mother's day...I baked a cake.  It was all I could do to get out of bed... I think I deserve to eat the whole thing.  Isn't it pretty?  It taste better than it looks...YUM!  I hope you all had a better mother's day than I did.
