MAMADEE's Blog: SP ~ Day 4987

Good Evening!
Hope you had a Blessed Sunday!

I love the yellow roses in this pic! emoticon emoticon emoticon
I'm very partial to roses anyway, in any color!

Wish I had a room full of them right now.
Many thoughts are spinning in my head today.
So Friday I had to deal with one of daughters spinning off the road due to black ice. She's fine & so is the car; but it's still a stressful ordeal. Saturday I got news that my mom is in ICU now! Wednesday she had hip replacement surgery. She was set to be moved to a rehab place on Friday. Instead, she began having tightness in her chest & trouble breathing. They diagnosed the start of pneumonia. So now she's been moved from the surgery center to the main hospital ICU where testing showed she has also suffered a mild heart attack in the last few days... no sign of those enzymes in the pre-surgery testing, but no one is stating when exactly they think she had this heart attack.
My sister called me first. A few minutes after getting off that call, one of my brothers called me. We spent an hour & a half on the phone; not just about Mom, but he clearly knows more of what's what with her than my sister does. emoticon

Thing is - they are all 1300 miles away!!! emoticon

I really dislike it when something routine and simple ends up being nothing simple, nor routine! emoticon

All I can really do from here is hope she gets to feeling better sooner, rather than later.

But it does get me thinking on what I can do to improve my situation, so when things such as these come up - and they will - I might be able to just pack up and go if that's what I wanted to do. Or, in the case of cars hitting black ice, be able to have another car to use in case that one needed repairs. emoticon

I must make some immediate changes!!!

Til next time,

    Roses are my favorite flower as well. So beautiful.

    Oh no! I am so sorry about your Mom’s setback! Prayers for her recuperation and that the skills of her health care team get her through this! Wow, pneumonia and a mild heart attack. OH my. So very sorry.

    For sure, times like this do get us thinking about how important it is for us to take care of ourselves.

    Surgery is never routine. So sorry to hear your mom is so sick. I hope she has a good recovery and that her pneumonia resolves with antibiotics.

    Being far away from loved ones makes things so much more difficult. Thankful you have other family members close by.
