Ugh. I ran 8 MILES over the weekend! It wasn’t pretty but I did it and I’m glad I didn’t quit. On one hand I am proud of myself for going that far, but on the other hand I am depressed thinking I still have over 5 more to tack on (for the 1/2 marathon)! O’well, one day at a time.
On to bigger news though. My mom is in the hospital and it’s been a scary 24 hours. She’s been having heart issues and yesterday it got really bad. She babysits the boys and it started in the morning to the point where her heartbeat was so rapid she was blacking out and had to go to the ER. By the time they checked her BPM it had slowed down a little, but was still 182 (it’s supposed to be about 75-80 I think). Anyway, the doctor found something he’s concerned about so they’ve been running tests and admitted her for the next day or two. So any prayers you could lift up for her would be much appreciated. I have faith that she’ll be fine but it’s still scary. It’s amazing how much they can do (medically) when dealing with heart issues so I think it’s just a matter of pinpointing what it is exactly. So that’s the latest. I’ll be back when I hear more.
