The only word I can use to describe my life right now is blessed.

This week was scary. I've been following up Tuesday's nightmare hospital visit with some doctor appointments to try and figure out just what might be wrong and of course, doctors never call when they say they will so I'm still waiting. The good news is that I managed, with the help of my wonderful mom and amazing sister to move out of my apartment. I also was able to finish my last two papers and send them to my professors less than 2 days after they were due. And after feeling as though I wouldn't make it, I managed to get on a plane yesterday morning and fly myself to Florida.

The Pilot recently moved into a new condo that's right on the water and it's absolutely stunning. (Pictures to come this week). It's the perfect place to follow the doctor's prescription of R&R.

Back to being blessed...

All of your comments were unbelievable. From those of you who have had panic attacks yourselves and could easily identify with what I went through to those of you who sent sweet e-mails and messages to make sure I was ok to those of you who sent gifts, I really can't thank you enough. When I started this blog just over a year ago, I started it as a way to keep track of my 25 Before 25 list. I never expected to gain friendships and find such a wonderful support community in each and every one of you. So, from the bottom of my heart, thank you all.

And of course, because it's Mother's Day, but because, really every day should be Mother's Day, I am incredibly blessed to have my amazing mother who, despite being overwhelmingly stressed out this week with work, managed to take off time to take care of me, pick me up from the hospital, move me out of my apartment and help me get my papers done. I've said this before but I could never, ever say it enough: I have the most incredible mom in the world and I am so unbelievably grateful to have her in my life. She has been there for me through absolutely everything and I honestly don't know how she did (does) it. I only hope that one day, I can be half as great a mom to my own (future) kids as she has been to me. 

I love you, Mami!
I'm still having a lot of chest pain but I'm feeling stronger every day. I'm hoping and praying to be able to get out and go for a run by Tuesday. In the mean time, I'll be relaxing poolside, soaking up the sun and enjoying the fact that I'm done and finally on summer vacation and even though I'll be on tour (more on that later) this summer, for now, I'm staying put right where I am, with nothing to do but read books and catch some sun. 

Thanks again to all of you for being so amazing
Happy Mother's Day to all you moms out there!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
