It has been a very busy and trying time for me. With losing my brother and three others that were friends with all in a little over a week span was just a little much to handle. It made me think of how we are living on borrowed time with my hubby.
I had to take time to get a mammogram and had a doctor appointment for me. My blood pressure was little high so we have changed my medicine for the time being.
Then hubby had to have a liver ultrasound done and we have a doctor appointment this coming Monday. I wish they could get his ammonia level under control. We will see what the doctor has to say. His portal vein is blocked and now the report that I got a copy of says that he has a blood clot there. He is to high of a risk to have surgery because we don't know if he will stop bleeding. His hemoglobin is dropping from a little over 13 to a little over 11 in a short period of time. They took him off some medicine that could possible cause that. If it isn't one thing then another. God keeps giving me the strength to handle it, but I sometimes wonder.
I saved some money when I got my car, but the majority of that will go to the nursing home. I don't get to keep it for me. They don't want you to get to keep any extra for sure. You just wonder how they figure what you have to pay. I would sure like to know their method.
I am looking forward to tomorrow evening. My youngest grandson and I are going to dinner and hanging out together while his parents go to a retirement party. He has picked a Mexican restaurant for our dinner. He told me not to worry he would order for us. He is only 10, but such a little adult.
He hasn't said what we are doing after supper, but I am to pick him up at baseball practice so that we can beat the rush for supper. He is something and those hugs are precious from those boys. Grandma goes to see them when I need a grandma fix.
I did tea towels for my daughter for a wedding shower that she was going to this evening. I liked the way they turned out. This was one of four that I made. I have to finish the border on my last one for a custom order so I have been busy. The fingers have to stay busy right now to give me something else to think about.
My oldest grandson has been working on his truck at the vo-tech school. There was more they had to do then they had originally thought. He had the highest score on his test in the afternoon class. Plus he had a big paper due that was suppose to take at least a week. He had his done in three days. He even had his teacher ask him questions and was surprised by the answers he got. He is going next month to check out a technical college. They do that their junior year of high school so they can apply for scholarships and etc. You wish that you could keep them young.
My middle grandson's little friend had his surgery and he is back to school for half days. God is there when we need him. Thank you for all of your prayers they mean the world to me. You are the best friends.
I am sending out prayers to those in need. Take care and have a wonderful weekend.
