Grateful

Remember Spanish Teacher? I've written about her a couple of times. She's the sister I always wanted and the kind of friend that everyone should have.

She had twin girls last week. (Yay for surprise pregnancies and YAY for surprise twins!) The girls were seven weeks early, tiny, but are healthy and thriving in the NICU.

Not so much my friend. She developed pulmonary embolisms (blood clots in her lungs) because of being on bedrest and we came way too close to losing her. She's still struggling to recover from that as well as the c-section so on Thursday afternoon I'm flying down to Denver to help her husband Computer Whiz with their older two kids and the house-laundry-cleaning-cooking crap so she can concentrate on getting well and being Mommy to four now.

Please say a little prayer, cross your fingers, send good get-well vibes - whatever - to Spanish Teacher, two very tiny little girls, an exhausted husband and worried big brother and sister in Denver. They need it.

Bless you for being that kind of friend. I miss my village! I will pray my heart out for her. Mom's aren't supposed to get sick, too many need her.
