Viva Las Vegas! What a fun weekend we had, wish you could have seen more of it. The Red Rock is a little off the beaten path, but it's truly a beautiful hotel/casino. You might remember all the girls went a couple years back.

While having drinks with Vicki, I was shocked to hear things were so bad with Donn. I really did think things were pretty good with them. Of course my heart breaks for both of them. I love Donn and Vicki, and the pain they will continue to go through is horrible. Walking away from a long term marriage is probably the hardest thing you can do. Vicki has a long road ahead of her. Emotions smack you in the back when you least expect it. I am glad I can be there for Vicki as a friend and someone that just went through the very same thing.

Fashion emergency, that's for sure! I was supposed to pick Vicki up and drive with her to Alexis' fashion show. I tried calling her but could not get a hold of her. I started to get worried with all that she was going through. I knew it wasn't like Vicki to not do something she committed to. I was sitting with Lynne when I got the message that she was headed to the hospital because she was hemorrhaging. It was then she explained to me that she had some minor bleeding in the past few month and never went to the doctor. Why anyone in the world  would not take that as a serious symptom is beyond me. Maybe she was embarrassed? But that day she wasn't just bleeding a little, she was hemorrhaging out of control. I personally have a condition called colitis and suffer from some serious symptoms. My doctor has warned me that if I ever started bleeding to get my buns to the hospital ASAP! I also had a co-worker and friend die from colon cancer three months after having those very same symptoms. So when she told me what was going on, my mind went crazy. When Vicki called me she was just getting admitted, and they were getting ready to run tests. As you could see by my text that was shown, I asked if I should come see her. She asked me to hold tight until they ran more tests. Since I was five minutes from the hospital, I sat and waited for her to get back to me. Obviously my mind was not on fashion! But I never got out of my seat or interrupted the show.
