My mom was admitted to the hospital again for breathing problems, she has COPD and smokes, so she's not going to make my shower. Obviously the most important thing is that she gets better, just sucks I won't get to share this event with her. Me and my sisters are going to go to the hospital after the shower and have a mini party in her room so I can open gifts from her with her there. I love my mom so much, I so wish she could kick the smoking and get healthy. Every time I've talked to her today she's started crying because she is missing the shower. I feel so bad for her. I keep trying to tell her it's just a party and the most important thing is her getting better so she can be around to meet her granddaughter when she's born.
Oh, I'm sorry to hear that. I can imagine how disappointed the both of you are. It's nice you will be able to spend some time with her after the shower and do some gifts. Who knows...maybe this is the kick she needs to get serious about stopping smoking?
Sorry to hear My grandma smoked her whole life and it just destroyed her health... it was really hard watching the way she had to live the last 10 years of her life. I think it's a really sweet idea to stop by for an after party with her.
I'm so sorry. I'm so glad that you will get to visit with her even if she can't go to the shower. I hope she will think about quitting smoking. It's one of the hardest things I've ever done but it's been worth it.
I hope she has a speedy recovery and maybe will leave with a little more motivation to quit. I've never had an addiction like that so I can't relate but would assume it must be really hard. Many people have done it before though so hopefully your mom will too someday.
As for the shower, is Skype an option? It wouldn't be the same as having her there but that way she could still see what is going on.
Just wanted to say...I dont know if your shower is today or was yesterday but I hope you have a good time. Really sorry about your mom. Good idea to visit her and open some gifts. Maybe you can sneak in some cake too. Hope she is better by the time baby comes. Thats when you will really want her and this could be the wake up call she needed.
Aw I'm sorry your mom couldn't be there with her but I really hope she uses this moment to influence her to get better so she can spend as much time as possible in her grandbaby's life. Hope your shower was wonderful.
