This week has been one roller coaster ride dealing with the nursing home and spending time at the ER with my daughter not knowing what was wrong. The ER's now days can't do some of the vital tests to tell you if you are having a heart attack. They don't really tell you anything just send you home with the instructions to see a heart doctor in 72 hours. You would think that they would try to find out why you are having chest pains. She was lucky to see the heart doctor in the same day. So far all of the tests that was done at the doctor's office came back negative for a heart attack, but god forbid they try to check that out at the hospital. Our new insurance is the pits. They want you to have home health care instead of doctor hospital care.They think just changing your life style will cure everything. Hubby is still not feeling the best in the world, just doesn't feel like eating. You can tell that he wasn't feeling good just by looking at him. It was so pretty today that we went outside for a while. There was several outside so we all set around talking.
The last time all of my brothers and sisters were together at my parent's 50th wedding anniversary. It was taken in 1979 so you can imagine all of our ages, but we always had a good time when we were together with all our our kids. We always lived on the farm moving a lot until my dad's mother told him that he had to get a farm of his own which my youngest brother still lives on. She past away in 1959 my senior year of high school. We would go spend the weekend with her. She lived in Iowa and she would always call the dime store telling them if we didn't have enough money just to put it on her bill and she would come up and take care of it. Mom and dad gave us money and she would too. Back in the 40's and 50's penny's bought an awful lot of candy. An Ice cream cone was an ice cream cone making ours today look small. You learn at an early age how to help feed chickens, milk cows, put up hay. You didn't bale it you put it up loose and we got to help pack it down in the hay loft. Shucked corn piling it on the ground until dad came with the team of horses and wagon. You ate what was fixed and you didn't get to be picky. The good ole days.
My youngest grandson has had two ballgames. The first they won 17-5 and the second 17-6. Last night he had a triple and two doubles, plus hitting foul balls over the fence. He told us he was sorry because they came over the fence where we were sitting.
State competition was awesome for my oldest so proud of their horse judging team getting 7th out of 47 teams. He is already thinking about next year. I am so glad that he enjoys school. My middle one is keeping a log to when he has dizzy spells and all, but it really doesn't slow him down. It makes us adjust to him so that he can hear us. They are all more computer smart then I am that is for sure.
The Apple Blossom parade was today with a lot of other things going on in town. The were having a BBQ cook off in town. You got to sample after the winners were announced. They had entertainment plus ball tournaments so you could have your choice as to what you wanted to do.
Enough rambling, I hope you all are enjoying your weekend. Take care.
