Tough

Hi there Burrow faithful,

Little Cuter here, with news on my amazing mom.

As most of you probably know by now, my mom attended the Congress on your Corner event yesterday at her local Safeway. Just as she reached the front of the line to shake Ms. Gifford's hand a gunman appeared and began shooting with an automatic weapon. My mom was shot three times.

 That's a sentence I never thought I'd have to type.

Right this very minute my mom is in the ICU with her leg in a traction. She suffered a wound to her left chest, one to her abdomen, and a third to her right hip. She is incredibly lucky that none of her organs were hit, even though one of the bullet's entry wounds was in her abdomen. She has been taken care of by some fantastic and proficient doctors and nurses, and a wonderful social work team.

My mom is the toughest broad I've ever met. She is awake and talking and cracking wise and we can all rest assured that the woman we love is still here, kicking major ass.

To all of you who have reached out already: I love you. Your thoughts have honestly been felt even if they were from many states away. The amount of love we are receiving is staggering, and we are incredibly thankful for all of you. Please continue to send out your best "healing vibes" (as we like to call them) and "special strength vibes" for the moments when we will be reaching in to our reserve tanks.

Love,
Little Cuter


UPDATE 1.11.11 5:08pm


To all of you who have reached out in the past few days, we are gob-smacked. The amount of love and prayers we have received are completely mind blowing, and we are so incredibly grateful.Thank you.

I have only positive news to report. Mom made it through her final surgery beautifully. Her surgery was long, it lasted about five hours, but the second she woke up the doctors were able to remove her breathing tube, she is moving oxygen perfectly, and everything looks good from here on out. We have a lot of physical and emotional work to do, but hopefully the hardest of all of this is behind us.

I would like to extend thanks from my family to all of the amazing doctors, nurses, social workers, US Attorney's Representatives, and FBI representatives that we have encountered in the last few days. We have had one exceptional experience after another and feel completely taken care of from all angles, even ones we wouldn't have thought of without their help.

I hope everyone who reads this knows how grateful we are to you as well. Each one of you individually has provided a moment of peace and joy to our family through your outreach, and we could not be more appreciative.

When her strength returns, I know my mom has a lot to share with you all. Even through her haze she has been asking me to take notes for her posts so that she doesn't miss any of the details. This community is so important to her, and the outreach we have experienced from you all has just solidified that my mom is part of a generous, thoughtful, caring, international family here. It is truly a beautiful thing.

Now please, go hug those you love extra tight.

xoxo,
Little Cuter

  1. Thank you so much, LC! The word is being passed to BlogHer and to Time Goes By, too. I wish so much I could be there. I was just sick with fear last night when I recognized the chances that your mother may have been there. I'm so glad you're there with her.

    I'm so concerned, too, for G'ma today!

    A/B, sweet girl, we are sending such healing vibes as you've never seen. We are with you, right here in the blogosphere you grace with your words. We're right here.

  51. Here's another jolt of "healing vibes" and "special strength vibes" for your whole family from Berkeley, CA. I learned this from Lisa Stone and Elisa Camahort Page, your BlogHer sisters.

    So very very sorry you had to write the words "My mom was shot three times." So very very glad you also were able to write: "the woman we love is still here, kicking major ass."

    May your reserve tank remain full enough to get you all through to whatever side of this exists. Which is to say, a changed life, but one still lived. Much, much love and strength to you all.

  75. Everything about this horrific event is just so shocking. Finding out that one of the shooting victims was a BlogHer blogger stunned me even more. But in the midst of such inhumanity, there is also love, coming to Ashleigh from so many people who don't really "know" her but who absolutely want to help in any way they can. I do believe that love can heal this kind of trauma and I'm sending a big dose of it today.

  117. Thanks for the status report, LC.

    After the initial shock and relief of the news, both for a/b's sake and for you in her family, my next thought was, "Oh, those poor people...!"

    By which I meant, of course, anybody facing the dismal prospect of interfering with her end-of-January plans. :) (That they probably include some of YOU just makes me feel doubly for you!)

    I don't have to tell you she's a remarkable woman. This will no doubt alter in some way(s), some of them probably profoundly. But anyone laying bets against her is looking at the wrong end of the odds.

    ReplyDelete
  118. More love coming your way! I'm so glad to hear that you're doing well and are in good hands, and I hope you have a speedy recovery. I'll be checking in to see how things are going, both here and on the news. <333333

  177. hey there, a/b--we've met before, on JES's blog.

    just wanted to say i'm thinking of you and wishing you a speedy recovery. can't wait to see you back online soon.

    i didn't realize you were a Tucson person--it's a city very close to my heart, and i only just got back to nyc from Tucson a couple of days ago. my heart goes out to everyone in your community who are recovering from their shock and hurt at this event.

  178. I am weighing my words more carefully with each breath I take as I think most of us here in Tucson are. As Gabby said, "Words have consequences."

    I look out my window and see the top floors of UMC a few blocks away, where the Tucson shooting victims are being cared for, and am sending healing energy and strength to Ashleigh and all those still recovering from wounds there.

    We are with you, in light and love.
