Late Saturday Charmaine felt another set of pains that felt too much like a heart attack.
Charmaine and Baby Boo at the hospital… getting ready to vote
Sunday morning we all were up at O:Dark-Thirty to work on lit drops at churches.
But her pains persisted and we dropped The Dreamer and The Dude at McCain HQ on Clarke Street in Arlington to work with the team.
And we went to the Emergency Room.
It was her first visit to same hospital since birthing out two of the five wee ones years ago.
It wasn’t her heart. Not life threatening. But her gall bladder was causing her a world of hurt — 72 hours before the election.
The timing was, well, inconvenient.
We could have waited, I suppose, but docs strongly recommended sooner rather than later…as in: sign this release form NOW.
And we didn’t want to chance anymore massive pain.
A routine operation. Then an uneventful recovery overnite. Then Your Business Blogger(R) raced her to the voting booth shortly before closing time.
She lost her gall bladder, we lost Virginia.
But she hasn’t lost her will to fight.
As Scripture says, joy comes in the morning and the battle for Life will continue.
And we will win.
By God’s Grace.
UPDATE: Charmaine will be appearing on FOX today, Thursday, to debate the future of Sarah Palin. Hit time is 11:20am. Please tune in and let us know what you think. She should do OK…we took her bandages off this morning. I think her meds might be wearing off, though.
