Fern's boss has lupus and went through a flare up for about the last four months. It attacked her lungs and heart. She was told she had a weak heart muscle. The doctor put her on medicine for the weak heart muscle. She was having trouble breathing and was put on oxygen. If the medicine did not work then the next step was a pace maker. In the last few weeks she started felling a lot better. She went to one of her doctors and they said the pills were working. She went to see her breathing doctor this week and the first thing he did was grab her hands and tell her he didn't think he would ever see her again!! That is how close to death this sweet woman was. Then she was told she no longer needed the oxygen...Praise God. It feels like nothing short of a miracle!!!
Now for the Vegas part....she wants to take both me and Fern all expenses paid to Vegas to celebrate!! She's getting us twins a SUITE!! So we will be taking LOTS of pictures. We are hoping to get tickets to see Cher, possibly Carrot Top and I'm a bit embarrassed to admit it but I want to see Donny and Marie if possible....LOL
We all went to Vegas in 2006 and saw our all time fave Celine. We adore Celine. Our seats were unbelievable. My daughter got me a ticket to see her again this November but the seats will be nothing like we were fortunate enough to get in Vegas but I will still love it.
I am going with a bit of a heavy heart because I will be missing Homecoming for my daughter and son. They gave me their blessing to go but I still have that Mom guilt. Don't tell me you would pass up the opportunity so you could be home for the dance 'cause I'll start crying and feeling so bad. I'm hoping getting to see Cher and maybe an alcoholic frufru drink will take care of that!
(This is Fern) I thought I needed to add that Fran never does anything for herself. She is the BEST mom EVER. She is really struggling with wanting to go and not being there for the dance her two youngest are going to. When she asked her son last night what he thought he said (I was on the phone to her at the time and heard him) "Mom I think you should go and have fun. You do so much for us." Now that tells ya what kind of mom she is :o)
We will be gone Oct. 2 till Oct. 6th.
