Is anyone up for a little Whine today? Last night we were back at the hospital. Not for me this time but for my MIL. The past week and a half she has been having more and more rib pain. Getting in the car and waiting 2 hours for the hospital to decide to keep me did not help her at all. The last 2 days we haven't been having any luck getting her up or even eating in bed. Last night we finally called the rescue and went to the hospital. It looks like she has several newly fractured ribs and they got her on fluids for dehydration. So for the short story she and Neil spent the night at the hospital and I came home about 3 AM.
I'm still trying to get back to normal. Last Friday I went back to the Dr. and got new meds because I couldn't keep the antibiotics down. It was horrible. But now I'm on something that doesn't bother me at all, thank goodness. But the Dr. decided I needed a tetanus shot. I asked if there would be any after affects, fever, etc to deal with and they said no. THEY LIED!!! OMG, where they gave me the shot it got the size of a baseball and fevered like crazy. My whole arm has ached for days. I really don't like taking pain meds but had to a couple of times. Today the redness is finally receding. Did I tell you I stepped on an old rusty piece of farm equipment after I came home from the hospital. Like an old tiller and got a good gash between two toes. Believe me when I say July couldn't end fast enough. I was destined for the hospital. Later I'll tell you how I almost broke my arm in the kitchen a mixer a few days before the cat bite. Who knew a kitty could be so dangerous. And why am I being so klutzy all of a sudden?
No, this is not the kitty that bit me. Thank Goodness!
Plus we're having a heat index of 105-110. Oh Summer please end, and sweet fall last months instead of our usual month.
On to some brighter news. I kept telling you last month that I had another giveaway planned for my anniversary and I do even if it is a month late. I finished the apron that will be apart of the giveaway before going in the hospital but pics are horrible so I do need to retake them. I'm going to give you just a small peek here. I can't promise when I'll get the giveaway going. Even before Nadine went to the hospital I was trying to care for her, Neil has had to go places several days and I'm really still tired and just starting to feel a little pain free. Now with her in the hospital and I don't know if she is coming home tomorrow or not, and me visiting and Neil staying with her, it may take a little time before I can get to blog and get the giveaway listed.
May God bless each of you for the kindness you've shared with me.
Love and Sweet Hugs...Tracy :)
