Very Busy

Monday, May 07, 2012

Well, my mom is in the hospital. They are doing some test. She has congestive heart failure, enlarged heart and fluid around the heart, and she was sick and got bronchitis. She has been in there since Saturday night. I found out Sunday, so we have been going back and forth to Columbus, Indiana, from Indianapolis to visit her.

She seemed better today than yesterday, but still not good. At least she was laughing and telling jokes and stuff. I know she didn't want us to leave but she needed to get some rest and we had over an hour drive home to make and still have dinner and rest up for tomorrow. We plan on going back tomorrow, but I think Paul will have to work the rest of the week after that. He can't use up all his vacation time so soon, it just kicked in on May 2nd and he is already scheduled off next week for our Anniversary.

Well, that's all for today, except I have made sure to log (most) of my food and I have been doing my workout before we leave in the mornings. It makes for a tiring day and my feet dont like me right now (swollen) LOL.

I hope everyone is having a good day. I will log again when I find a minute. Love to all ...Joyce

    Thanks for the encouraging words. My mom is a sister and the brothers in her congregation knew before we did. They told my daughter at their meeting on Sunday and then they called us, that is how we found out. Her congregation is very loving and kind. If my husband could ever retire we would move to North Vernon, Indiana too so we could be with our family there and go to the same congregation. It is truely like a big family. I get the most loving hugs when I get the chance to visit.

    Joyce, hope your mom is doing better and I'm sorry you have a swelling problem. That happens so often especially when it's warm.

    Hope Mom feels better fast. Scary health stuff to be dealing with. Perhaps you can contact her by phone if you can't go every day. Is Mom a JW? You should alert her elders if they don't know already...and let the local congregation know she is there as well. I have a friend/sister in a nearby town in Rehab. The local congregation found her and visit is lovely to be part of our worldwide brotherhood.

    Take care of yourself. emoticon
