JULY FIRST

Standard

I can’t believe that July is here now. We have had such warm

weather it felt like July the whole month of June. Things have
gotten complicated over the past few days. Mom’s arm that she
uses for dialysis has stopped working for her. We are seeing a
surgeon in the morning to see what measures he wants to take
to help her get back on her schedule. In the meantime, she is
recovering from her bout with this illness that hospitalized her
last week. When it rains it pours it seems in her case lately.
Looks like it will be a busy 4th of July here for us trying to get
things straightened out. All your prayers will be appreciated
greatly by Mom and Sis and I. Will update you all when I get
a chance.

HOPE YOU ALL HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND AND
SAFE HOLIDAY TOO.

FIVE YEARS…

Standard
Five whole years and so much has happened here. I have
put so much time and effort into this blogspace and forgot
that this past week was the anniversary of when it started.In
those five years…
 
Friends were made…they feel like family to me, because
in a way, they are.Red heartWe lost a few family members who
will always be remembered and missed too.Red heart
 
Milestones passed. My nieces got married and one had a
child while I blogged about it.Red heart
 
 I had a reunion with
 Sue who rarely gets to visit her
old hometown. I shared the joy of seeing her again and
all our adventures. Smile
 
I received the best gift I have ever had in my life as generous
spaces family members helped me get "back on line". It truly
was the Christmas Miracle. Red heart
 
While writing this blog journal here, I received life altering news
that Mom was in Kidney failure and our lives changed forever.
Without  the support of spaces family members and their prayers,
I don’t know where we would be. Red heart
 
Yes five years have gone by and I sure don’t think I will ever close
this blog here.. too much has happened. Msn doesn’t make it
easy on any of us..but the memories and friendships are too priceless
to ever say goodbye.
  THANKS TO ALL MY SPACES
  FAMILY AND VISITORS FOR
   FIVE WONDERFUL YEARS!!

FINALLY FRIDAY

Standard
It is finally Friday around here. This week seemed like two weeks
long. Those of  you who are  on Facebook already know that
Mom is back home, although very weak. This virus or whatever it
is, has it’s hold on her as well as my Sis. We are all tired of it and
wish it were on it’s way to some other lovely place now.
Nurses are follolwing up with Mom, but talking to the
staff at the hospital they are very leery of her being able to
Io
fend this thing off without another hospital stay. The
doctor wanted her back in Tendercare for a week rehab. He had
the paperwork set in motion. ONE CATCH..
MEDICARE WILL NOT PAY UNLESS YOU HAVE
STAYED OVER THREE NIGHTS IN A HOSPITAL FIRST.
(Mom had only stayed two nights when she was released.)
So back home she went.  Mom, as the staff at the Tendercare
knows, does not do well there eating and sleeping wise. She is
better off at home unless it is something very serious. I am  still
coughing and blowing over a week later. I am hoarse from
all that coughing.This stuff really kicks
you when you are down. I wouldn’t wish it on anyone.
We keep fighting it though.Disappointed smile
@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@
Numerous storms and tornado warnings and bad weather have
also made this week a long one. TODAY is the first nice day we have
been able to enjoy with a cool temp this morning in the 50’s.
Although I was reluctant, I did open the windows wide and let the
cool dry air in for a change. I needed to let the germs out too! Wink
I don’t know if I remember a June that has been so hot or humid in
a long time.I can only wonder what July and August will bring us.
Being able to breathe the air today is such a treat!

News about HELL HOUSE…
The neighbors inform us that they will NOT be renting any apts.
out. The entire house will be used by one family, albeit a big one.
We were thrilled to hear that news. Renters are usually the ones we
have the issues with in the past. They are busy repairing and replacing
things that are no longer useable. The furnace works even though
the basement was flooded and the sheetrock was replaced and cleaned
yesterday by several people wearing protective gear. SO.. maybe in
the future months HELL HOUSE can have a name change. We will
wait and see on that one. Wink

ILLNESS UPDATE

Standard
Haven’t had much time to update here. All heck broke
loose. Mom wasn’t doing too well with the cold and
began to have trouble sleeping and breathing. Sis
came down with it too.
So this fella is living with us these days. Mom was hospitalized
yesterday and is undergoing tests etc. I know she is in good hands.
The medicine she needs is there and not at home. Meanwhile the
weather is wreaking havoc here with many severe storms that
seem to keep coming back daily. I surely will be glad when all
this settles down some. It doesn’t help any with our running back
and forth to the hospital in it, that is for sure. Sad smile I, for one, do not
handle the very very humid stuff well at all. It feels like mid or late
July here. Will make it a long summer if this keeps up.
Appreciate your support and prayers this week for us as we
try to get well and get back to normal.  Red heart
 
Take care of yourselves and
HAVE A  GREAT DAY!!
