A couple of months ago, my mother suffered a severe concussion that required a MRI. I know it’s going to sound crazy when I say that she was lucky, but she was. The scan found a brain aneurysm and it either kills the person or causes a stroke before it is found as there are no symptoms. According to her doctor, her aneurysm falls in the severe category. Last week, she underwent brain surgery to clip it and a stint. Hopefully, if she passes a few tests, she will go home today.

I feel so blessed and grateful that this played out as it did. Also, I’m grateful to all of the love and support that has been provided to my parents and family.
