My mother, known here as shewolf309 asked me to write an article explaining her abscence here on Gather.
This past Saturday she was taken to the hospital with chest pain. Once at the hospital it was determined that she had suffered a minor heart attack. They gave her 2 nitro pills and 4 baby aspirin and that was enough to stop it.
She was released from the hospital later that day and has not had any reoccurance of the pain. The problem now is that she has pneumonia. She is currently taking antibiotics and using a nebulizer to keep her airways open.
She hasn't had much strength and spends most of the day sleeping. She has managed to get online a few times of the last couple of days, but just doesn't have the energy to do much Gathering.
Finally today she is starting to feel better, thanks to the antibiotics. She was worried that people would think she reached the 3000 goal and disappeared.
I of course told her that wasn't the case, but she still asked me to write.
She will return soon with a lot of new pictures of Bella for you all to enjoy.
