I'm Back!

Our family enjoyed some wonderful vacation time with my DH. We had a long list of home improvement goals that we swore we would accomplish, but we didn't finish a thing. Oh well, I have plenty of time to try to get stuff done before the kiddos start school again. Better start typing up that To-Do list. :)

Switching gears, we ended our 10 day vacation time with my hubby by going to visit his Grandma. Grandma is in her upper 80s and lost Grandpa to cancer a little over 18 months ago (after almost 65 years of marriage), so she lives alone in a nice condo close to my hubby's mother. Long story short, after we arrived at her condo we quickly discovered that she had suffered a stroke sometime over the weekend. Based on the info that we gathered from her and her neighbor, we think that she woke up on Friday morning with the symptoms. But she didn't tell us or my hubby's mom until we arrived on Sunday. :( DH's mom talked to her on the phone several times between Fri and Sun, but she didn't say anything. Hubby talked to her on Saturday, but she didn't say anything. Her neighbor tried to get her to go to the hospital, but she wouldn't go. But she went shopping, got her hair done, and went to church. UGH!!!! We finally convinced her to go to the hospital. She's still there and they are running tests to try to find out the extent of the damage and whether or not she has a clogged artery. So, if you wouldn't mind offering up some extra prayers it would be greatly appreciated. I think that she has become lonely (even though she refuses to move in with any of us) and scared since Grandpa has passed and she just doesn't know how to take care of herself anymore. It just breaks my heart.

To my dear Lady RFH: I have been having some email trouble and I think that I somehow lost the email that you sent me. I am working to recover it (hopefully!) and email you back. I'm so sorry ~ I didn't want you to think that I forgot about you or was ignoring you. :( Blogger almost didn't let me log in today. It said that my email didn't exist. It's some weirdo problem that I can't figure out. If I can't get it , I'm going to make hubby take a look at it. ;)

Well, that's all that I have time for today. Hope that everyone had a great weekend. I'm off to catch up on reading some blogs, etc.

UPDATE: It's about noon here and I just found out that Grandma's carotid artery is fine. God is so good!

Welcome back...prayers are ascending for Grandma. That's so like my own grandma - to not tell us when something is wrong. She doesn't want to "bother" anybody.

Welcome back!I'm glad you all had some wonderful time together! I will have your Grandma in my prayers and I'm glad to hear the good news about her Cartoid Artery.

Thanks for the prayers everyone! :) Unashamed, That's exactly what Grandma told us when we asked her why she didn't call us!! She was afraid she would "bother" us so she decided to wait until we got there.
