Whirlwind weekend

This weekend was a whirlwind. Got a call from my mother early Saturday morning she wasn't feeling well at work, I told her to go to Urgent Care. They felt she needed more medical attention and rushed her to the ER for more testing. We sat in the ER for 5 hourse just to have them Transfer her to a bigger hospital so they could do more testing.

To make things short, she woke up with dizziness, was ok after a few minutes, headed to work and felt even worse with dizziness, nausea, vomiting, blurred vision, headaches. She is doing ok. Better than yesterday thank god!!! After 14 hours of ER care, she is settled into her room in the Neuro Unit in the best Hospital in the world!!! Upstate Medical University Hospital in Syracuse NY. That place is so beautiful. They have the new Golisano Childrens Hospital up and Running and it was the most unbelievably beautiful wing. I went up to check it out and it was simply amazing to see such art and colors in array of Stars, shapes, etc. Any child would love it here despite what their problems are! Props to the people who designed this. Im Very impressed.

On the flip side, I was signed up for the Owasco flyer and since my mother was in "Stable" condition, I decided to ride it with my cycle Club, the Velo Bellas and of course my Brother-in-law.

This course has alot of challenging hills on the back side of the course with over 2,000 feet of climbing!!

I was riding with a woman, we were helping each other out after I got dropped after the first 10 miles due to people sandwiching me in on a hill and I couldnt pass. Around 20 miles my chain fell off, around 25 miles my partner went down in the ditch after trying to grab a glass of water from a volunteer. They told me to keep riding after I stopped as the marshalls were there, but I still felt bad. After all our hard work.

I managed 3rd in my age group with a time of 2:00:26. Not too shabby for a Hilly 36 mile course!!!

I then had to shower and get back to the hospital...Awaiting MRI results!!
