My Hectic Month


Haven't had much time to blog the past few weeks, it's been uncommonly busy for me.
 My oldest grandson Jake arrived from NC on December 15th to stay with us through January 6th  because my daughter and son in-law had to drive to Chicago for a family emergency with my son in-laws mother who was diagnosed with a very rare brain  deteriorating disease and only has a short time left with them. We decided when Jake arrived we would have him spend time between both grandmas here in Cali for the holidays since there was so much to do, but the day before he arrived grandma Wree's sister suffered a stroke and his visit with her had to wait a few days. 
Sunday Dec. 16, I picked my mother up for her stay here with us through the 24th and after a week of preparations and our family gathering on the 22nd she wasn't feeling well. I ended up dialing 911 and calling an ambulance to our home after we said our last goodbye that evening. Turned out mom suffered a minor heart attack and we spent the next 48 hrs in the hospital under evaluation, controlling HR and they placed her on blood  thinners. 
Twenty years prior mom suffered a major heart attack and has been on meds ever since. Mom's meds have been adjusted a few times over the years and turns out that's all that needed to be done again Thank God. We are blessed that she made it home for Christmas. 
Well it's not over yet! Today we go to Chuck E Cheese for a family birthday party, tomorrow Universal Studios, Sunday we celebrate Christmas again with my sons because they both worked Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, then we are off to the Tournament of Roses Parade on Tuesday. Busy busy busy.
Believe me, I am really looking forward to our New Year's toast and ringing in the New Year with all of you after the month I've had. 
Hope you all had a great Christmas =)
