Concerns for Mama Iva

Crazy day. Lots of anguish, tears, phone calls and a little work drama thrown in just for fun. Looks like Mama Iva is going to have some last-minute heart surgery tomorrow. Was going to Aspen with my pal, Susie, but she graciously agreed that it was best if I was there with Mom instead.

So, I just bought my ticket and plan to leave the house around 4:00 a.m. to be in LA by 8:00 a.m. to take my mom to the hospital by 10:00 a.m. so she can have surgery by 12:30 p.m. Whew!

Times like these make me realize how far away I am.

Um, yeah, can you call my house at 4 a.m. and wake my ass up? KIDDING.

Well, sorta.

Thanks for the warm vibes, guys. It helps.

I left you a message before reading this ... but my offer stands! Let me know what I can do, and I'm sending up what I call "javlin prayers" in honor of Mama Iva, and you (I think they get there faster) Love you.

Wow - it was so nice to gather up all these warm thoughts of love. They must have helped 'cause she came through with flying colors. Thanks, ya'll!
