Whew - what a busy season it has been. I've missed you all so. I'm in the fourth month of staying at my aunt's, she's still not back to work, still using the wheelchair - although she's getting around a bit with the walker.
And now an update on mum. On my last post, I mentioned that she had an appointment with the dentist - he found a bone infection in her jaw. The next day, I took her to the foot doctor, and he sent her right off to emergency. The infection from her foot has gone into the bone.
And there she stayed for the next four days, 60 miles from my aunt, who fell again and went to the hospital near her on the same day as mum.
The same week saw the end of my job. And I got rear-ended.
Mum is now out of the hospital. She's staying at my aunt's, I'm so happy to have them in the same place - she has to have IV infusions of antibiotics every. single. day. Saturday and Sunday included. Maybe it's a good thing I'm not working? Also, she has no pulse in her foot, and will probably have to have surgery to open the artery. Our beach trip is on hold indefinitely.
And this, my dear friends, is why I have been so quiet, and not emailing or visiting you. The only time I have is in the early mornings, when I'm at the clinic with mum, but there's no internet there. Instead, I sew, sitting in the car....
and I do admit, it makes for a very peaceful morning. It takes 3 hours for her infusions. Three hours to drink my coffee, pray, and enjoy my needle slipping through the fabric.
We also had a birthday recently, I no longer am the mum of a teenager! Sam turned 20.
How come he gets older and I don't?
I had better finish this, I smell something delicious from the kitchen....buffalo meatloaf....I do love buffalo meat! Yum! And I don't have to cook, can't beat that. Take care my friends, I hope to see you soon, I'm very anxious to get back to my sewing and blogging - I MISS YOU SO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
A foggy morning but the coffee helped
