hello all. i have been offline for a week -- you wont believe why. well, you might!
i went to vegas last weekend to use my christmas gift of tickets to see donny and marie. super looking forward to it, right. well just hours after landing, i ended up in the hospital with a suspected (on their part, not mine!) heart attack. after being there for about 20 hours, i said 'forget it' and left. it was a disgusting hospital and i was NOT missing that show for any reason. i saw the show, had great seats and...oh ...ran into donny and his family in the restaurant there. he was so very gracious and concerned about me. he invited me backstage after the show and chatted with me for a bit longer very privately. as a teen, i would have sold my soul for such a chance meeting. as a grown woman, i know that some things are just ordained by God and i believe this was just such a moment. i wasn't all screams and giggles like some of the other ladies there in the audience; just calm, happy and mature. it was the moment of a lifetime of dreams and i am so happy about it.
i came home the next morning and ended up in the hospital again...for the same reason! three days later -- no heart attack but i do have a torn shoulder that the pain from mimicked a heart attack. ah...the life of a 62 year old., never dull!
