Hey everyone, I apologize for not getting back to everyone's comments & frequenting your blogs that I genuinely love so much. The last 24 hours have just been insane. My family got the call that my grandfather is in the hospital. He's doing better but it's been an ordeal. Sometimes you gotta put the Barbie dolls back in the box & be an adult usually when you least expect it.
Thank you God for making him pick up the phone at dialing 911. Seriously, older people can be very very stubborn, meaning they think "Ohh I'm fine. Don't worry." My grandfather has had a heart attack in the past so he didn't take any chances this time. He might have a stomach infection or something else but definitely an infection. He's in the hospital, he's in good hands so I'm not that worried. Whew!
Calling all the family & keeping them updated, making sure my grandpa was warm, keeping the peace between sides of the family, and getting out with my sanity was an ordeal. I went home because I was just too tired. I'll find out more information when my parents come home. The hospital staff was nice too. I wish I could have given him some ice chips because his throat was so dry.
Today was definitely one of those days that makes you who you are. I'm proud of myself that in times of crisis I can act on what is needed and be calm about it. Somehow it's almost like I've learned the skill. I had a diabetic ex who most of our relationship was when he was in & out of the hospital, I had fibroids removed from my right breast, I had my gall bladder removed last October, & all the times I've been the hospital with my other grandparents. I thankful to be calm in these situations because no one needs another hysterical person. "Keep calm & carry on."
I'll be back up and running tomorrow to check on all your awesome blogs. Blogging has become like driving a car. I don't know what I would do without it! Much love to you guys...talk to you later!!
