Lately, we’ve had a ton going on.
The boys and I went to Austin 2 weekends back to visit my college friend Dana and her family. We had such a great time. The boys played outside, even when it was too cold, and the adults chatted and chatted. We might have even played a little Wii Fit. Zach did amazingly well.
Then, the day after we got back, my mom fell and broke her hip. I spent that Monday out in Richmond getting her all checked in and settled at the hospital, where she’ll be for awhile.
I had a funny feeling in my stomach all day. In the back of my head I thought it might be appendicitis, but I really didn’t have time for that, so I kept pushing that to the back of my head. At midnight on Monday, I decided I needed to go to the ER. So I tried to tell Neil…but the was sound asleep. I just drove up there myself. And guess what?????? It was appendicitis and I had surgery that day at 1p.m. to have it removed. Nothing like having surgery at one hospital on the same day that your mom is having her hip replaced at a different hospital. It was not an easy day for anyone, especially my great sister, who went to work, came to my hospital for my surgery, then rushed to my mom’s hospital for her surgery and stayed there until around midnight. Thank goodness ICU won’t let you spend the night.
More later…Jake has a tee-ball game tomorrow. First one. I’ll miss it but his super grandparents will take him and pictures. Hooray for family
