It's been an interesting week. I dropped the girls off at my Mom's in Knoxville last weekend, hubby picked me up and we joined our group of friends for a 5 day tour of Tennessee and North Carolina's twistiest roads. We rode the "Tail of the Dragon" which is an 11 mile stretch of road with 318 curves...by the end we had ridden it 3 times. We even stopped to white water raft down the Nantahala River half-way through the trip! It was a great break from the riding and a lot of fun!! Here are a few pics!
On the last day of our trip, after dinner I got a voicemail from my Mom's best friend that she had a heart attack and was in the ICU. We left very early the next day and broke off from our friends to get back to Mom's. The neighbors watched our kids, and we were able to go and see her that morning. She had 100% blockage in one artery, and they installed 3 stents to unblock her. She is home now, and is feeling better. She has some new eating habits to learn, and needs to learn to relax a little more. We are all feeling very fortunate that the circumstances weren't worse and that we still have her here with us.
