What Next?

After getting home from the shows and working on all the stuff we have going on for Spring Market in Portland, we celebrated Easter with the kids and grandkids. I got home from the studio on Monday night and was cooking dinner when I heard a strange sound coming from the living room. I had just told my husband that dinner would be ready in 2 minutes. I heard it again and went to see what he was doing and got the shock of my life! He was having a seizure and I called 911. Needless to say it has been a whirlwind couple of days. After the ambulance ride and too many tests to count, two days in ICU (I ended up sleeping in a very hard chair) my loving husband is now home and doing better.
We have been married 36 years and I never want to see him go through that again! He is the healthiest person I know, he eats perfectly and exercises. The message I want to share is for us all to slow down and remember to not miss a chance to tell someone that you love them. We are making some big changes and will now have a new normal at our house, but being able to hug my husband everyday for many years to come is worth it!
