Woohoo!!! I can’t wait. I’ll be leaving a week from tomorrow. We are going to drive from here to Boise, Idaho to see my family. Have I mentioned that we have two young boys? One who is almost 5 years and one who will be 2 in August? Yeah, this should be fun. *heavy sarcasm* It’s called driving as much as we can at night to (hopefully) get as many miles behind us before the boys get restless. Lots of movies, and new toys. *LOL* I’ll be able to check email while I’m on vacation, so I won’t be completely out of touch.
Speaking of my family, here’s an update on Grandma! The surgery to clean out the abscess went well. Things were kind of scary after the surgery, though. We think that she had a hard time getting the anesthetic out of her system and that she may have been allergic to one of the anti-nausea meds she was on. For nearly 36 hours straight, she was hallucinating, and her muscles were constantly twitching and her limbs were active. My mom and aunt say she was doing things like taking showers, swimming in marathons, and other activities. All of it hallucinations. But she finally got over that and since then she’s been getting better every day. She’s been out of bed and walking short distances every day. She is due to move into rehab either today or tomorrow. Yay Grandma!!!
To make my week even more “interesting”… my youngest son, Brandon, ended up in the hospital on Sunday. He came down with a cold on Friday evening or Saturday morning. It just kept getting progressively worse. Since he also has asthma, we ended up taking him into urgent care on Sunday. We thought it was just an asthma attack that we couldn’t get under control. Turns out he had pneumonia. Poor boy. We were finally discharged Monday evening around 8pm. Since then, he’s been getting breathing treatments every 3 hours. Including at night. Yeah…. guess who hasn’t had much sleep the last few days? But, he’s a whole lot better now and back into getting in trouble all the time. 🙂
I think that’s about it for my updates. I don’t know if I can handle anything more right about now. *LOL* On Monday, I get to take pictures of Amanda’s family. Amanda’s son Michael is the same age as Brandon. Older by just a couple of hours. Amanda and her husband Aaron were the ones who posed for me last month for the contest. I’ve always had a good time with their family, and you can see several images of Michael in my galleries.
Everyone have an awesome weekend, and don’t forget that my July specials are ending soon!
