Mother first . . .

. . . that's what I am. Today I was reminded of it.

Sam and I got up and got ready to head to Oklahoma for our monthly meetings. As we were getting ready to get in the car the phone rang. Sweet daughter. Feeling really bad. So bad we had her immediately go to the E R. She lives in Waco so that meant we couldn't take her. Dear Claire, one of her 'lofties', did. Thank you, Claire!

There was no way I was going north to Oklahoma. And Sam found out he's a father first - and he wasn't going north either.

Long story short: Laura was given an IV so as not to be dehydrated - and the tests came back negative - which is positive! We took her back to her loft, got her some bland food from H.E.B., and her boyfriend (a nursing student) was on his way. So we got in our car and headed north. Now we're in OK City - and settled in for the night. . . but my heart and mind are still in Waco and I'm thinking I should have stayed there.
Ah, but I'm used to second-guessing myself, so I'll be okay. And I'm praying precious Laura will be more than okay - in every way.
I love her more than I can say.

Different note: I have pictures to post - but will do that next time.

Oh, I'm glad Laura is okay! You had me worried there for a minute. Be safe in OKC.
