I apologize to everyone and anyone who noticed that I have not blogged since the first assignment. Unfortunately, my mother experienced severe kidney failure OUT OF THE BLUE!!! It was immediate and so severe that I had to take time out of my life and everyday routine to take care of the one person I love more than anything in the world. She was in ICU for 16 days and I *almost* lost her. BUT I DIDN'T! And I'm so happy that she's only an hour and a half away for me to take care on a weekly basis. SoOoOo... I'm very thankful that today we have a day to catch up and I'm going to quickly run through my notes and put up all of the bloggs that I've missed.
