Rough Weekend

Sunday, September 27, 2009

The last 24 hours have been interesting.

Saturday evening hubby started having diarrhea followed by severe pain in his right flank, lower abdomen, and groin. He eventually threw up. We are pretty sure he has another kidney stone. It was pretty severe until around 11:30 when the pain let up. So we had little sleep last night and had to get up early to drive on the other side of St. Louis for Wheeler's surgery today.

We left at 8 this morning and got there at 10. They took her in around 11 and were done by noon. We crossed the Mississippi back into Illinois and stopped in the metroeast area and ate. My son stayed in the car with Wheeler while we got the chinchillas and us some food at Petsmart and Sam's.

We made it home by 4 P.M. but we are all pretty tired. My back is killing me.

I just called Dad. He is being released from the hospital tomorrow. He's in no shape to go home but that's how the system works any more. They say he is doing better so I hope he is.

I have baby Wheeler sleeping in my lap. We got her to eat a couple of bites.

Most of my sparkpeople pages are still not working like sparkpoints, sparkmail, etc. and I can't even notify spark tech people of the problem.

    If you want to email me at and let me know what exactly is going on with your SP account, I'd be happy to post on the community tech support page to see if I can get an answer for you.

    I'm so sorry that your having difficulties with your Spark program. Especially, considering the rough patch that you're going through trying to take care of all the people in your family who need special care at this time. Not to mention, it seems that it is a good place to go to so you can connect to others and feel supported. I hope that things improve for you soon. It definitely seems as though you deserve a good rest so you can renew your spirit.

    It sounda like you had a frustrating, tiring, overwhelming day. the only good thing is the surgery went well AND you don't have to go through this day again.

    I will wish you and yours hugs and blessings for a good night's sleep and a much better day tomorrow.
