I don’t want to sound whiny – but I probably will. This was a VERY rough weekend – a rough patch of sorts.
Georgie had a stomach bug Friday evening – through the night – into Saturday. Poor thing – she was wrung out! Right alongside her, Little Man was actively cutting a tooth – and is still congested enough that he’s struggling to breathe through his nose.
During a nap with 2 of my kids Saturday afternoon, my mom called to say she was at the ER with my dad who had had a spill off his 4-wheeler. Had a big gash on his face, but the 2 grandkids he was riding with only had a couple of bruises. That was the good news.
As of 24 hours later, he had been life-flighted to University of Toledo Medical Center – due to swelling & bleeding. My dad is on a couple dozen medications, including a blood thinner, and the swelling & bleeding could not be stopped. There was concern about a brain bleed, a spleen injury – and a broken rib was confirmed. At this point – he has finally been moved to a room in ICU, where he is continuing to be monitored. Another CT scan will be done tomorrow – and they continue to battle high blood pressure and a fever. My mom was with him at UTMC and just as she was heading to a cousin’s house for a shower and much needed rest, they got him moved, so they both need a good night’s rest!
Your prayers would be appreciated. I promise I will announce the winner of the MyMemories Suite giveaway – but need some time… Thank you for your patience and understanding. =)
