This is just a placeholder post, because time has run away from me, much like my toddler does. I have much to post about but the thing occupying most of my brain and heart space is my mom's upcoming surgery tomorrow. She is having a bladder repair surgery, and it's a really good thing - one of those surgeries that will give her a better quality of life. My mama has dealt with wonky kidneys and complications since BIRTH, bless her heart. She has spent far too much time in hospitals, mostly before I ever came along. So we are hoping and praying that this surgery will release her, in the best way possible. I am proud of her for pursuing this option and deciding on it, even with the long recovery involved. She's so brave. And beautiful.
