Things Have Been Nuts...

Hey my dear friends!  So sorry I haven't been around lately.  I know I should have let you guys all know that I am ok.
Things have been a bit crazy lately.  My grandma has been & is still sick with stomach problems.  She was in & out of emergency & the hospital without anything being done to help her condition.  She has been talking with her stomach doc about having surgery to put a stent somewhere in her gastric area to open it up in order to keep her from being nauseous.  Being 93, it will be very dangerous to have surgery but she is tired of living with the constant problem.  Almost everytime she eats, she gets sick to her stomach.  Then she doesn't want to eat for fear of feeling sick again or having stomach pains.  She has lost way too much weight & I thank God that she still has the will to live, for now.
So, with all of this, & work, I still have my own family life.  I suppose I let myself get worn down & ended up with a stomach virus for almost a week & am now taking antibiotics for an ear infection that crept up on me with a bad cold/cough & allergies.
We have had a couple of near 80 days where I sat out in the yard to take in some healing sun, which helps a little.  But alas, my summer vacation is still over 5 weeks away.  Today, I pulled a lot of weeds from my yard & will maybe finish next week if the temps come back up again as they are to be in the 50's for the weekend. UGH!  I will never get well if these damn temps don't quit hopping about!
I pray you are all doing well & enjoying life.  I am getting there once again, but it is taking some time.  I love & miss you all!  (((HUGS)))!!!

I've missed you. I'm sorry you are ill and your poor grandma! YIKES!

Take care of your grandma, your family and most of all you. The weather has been a bit up and down, though, hasn't it?

Collette said...

@Wannabe-Thanks! I miss you all so much, too.
@Reffie-Try to send the warm stuff for this weekend. It's only supposed to be in the 50's-ARGH!
@MomZ-Will do! I just want to have 75-80F during the day and maybe about 60-65 at night. Is it really too much to ask? (Yeah, I know. It's Michigan!)

Good Lord! Has the doctor given ANY consideration to the fact that grandma might have a virus and that's where YOU got it? On the other side, if she doesn't have a virus, I hope she never caught yours. We should all move to Florida.

Collette said...

@Dana-Nope, no virus for her. Just some valve that's too small or something. But Florida sounds like a good idea!

Don't worry...we're still here!

Zombie Mom said...

Aw, honey. You've certainly had your hands full this last....6 months?....year?...it feels LONG however long it's been.

I was really hoping your Grandmother was feeling much better and life had simply resumed it's frenetic pace with the ending of school right around the corner.

You just keep your eye on that prize that's 5 weeks away....and don't worry 'bout us. We're just sitting here...twiddling our thumbs and trying to keep ourselves amused whilst we think of you and hope you're well....

Seriously!

dana said...

tsk tsk. You have more complaints than a man being hung with a dirty rope....so come sit beside me and I'll match you, complaint for complaint.

I've been battling an ear infection for two months now and the amount of meds I'm putting IN me, and the amounts of liquid meds I'm SNIFFING up my nose and pouring in my ear is unbelievable.

AND, what came first: YOUR stomach virus or grandma's???

If she wasn't 93, I'd say she sounds like me and I have Crohns disease, but people at 93 don't suddenly get crohns disease.

Have they checked her for a blockage?
