Monday morning we got a call from Mom saying that they finally called and the procedure to put her heart back in rhythm was a go. So we rushed around getting packed and finishing up what we could of SV work and left by 1pm-ish.
The IV drip that was supposed to "fix" Mom didn't work so they had to shock her heart. Fortunately, the shock worked, and Mom's heart is working perfectly now. There was a mix-up with her earlier test results and apparently her heart was in much better shape than they had thought originally. If you have to have a mix-up, that's a good one.
We thought that we'd be back by Tuesday but there were delays and we just got back today (Thursday). We've been playing catch-up with our business and I had some other obligations that were totally forgotten in the rush to get to WV. I think we're all caught up now. Whew.
I missed blogs. I missed facebook. I missed email. Mom has no internet and the cell phone gets nooooo service there so we felt quite out of touch.
It felt so good to get home, as nice as it was to visit with family.
On top of getting home, Patrick went and picked up our new computer so I am in bliss with my lightning fast internet service again!! Hallelujah!
Oh, I have a question. When our computer was out, I looked at my blog on my son's new laptop. My blog looked blue on it. On our computer, it has more of a yellow/green thing going on, which is what I wanted. What does it look like to you?
Here are some of the pics I was finally able to upload.

Harvesting of our basil and sage. It's pretty much dried out now and ready to be put in jars to enjoy throughout the winter months.
I missed my bloggy friends while we were away. It was good to be home and to be with family but it's also so good to be back with my blog family. :)
