bless you where ever you are

I spent today with my mother and grandmother, but mostly my mother. We seem to spend a lot of Sundays together since it's just about her only true day off. Except, that won't be the case soon. On Tuesday my mother is going to have a medically necessary surgical procedure performed and she'll be out of work for something like 6 weeks. She's never had surgery before. I've never had surgery before. She's expressed being nervous about it, but I tend to not say how I feel. Instead I just randomly cry at no particularly moving occasion. Mysteriously something will strike worry and I'll have a little cry. But being in a family of doctors, I've got to trust the medical field, or at least try to. Unfortunately, I watch far too much Grey's Anatomy and House and there's always crazy terrible things happening during surgery and I'm so spooked! Ugh! I wish McDreamy and Dr. Burke were her surgeons!

A) fortunately for me, I didnt limit my post to a "picture-a-day" sort of thing so I don't have to use daily photos!
B) I know! she's so cute! unfortunately, she does not believe so. but maybe if everyone keeps telling her, she'll see it too!
