the bad and good day.

Saturday, December 21, 2013

Some of you may recall I blogged about my sister in law, being so sick and needing surgery for her bowel.
Well, we went to visit her in the hospital yesterday and she was doing ok.
She had developed pneumonia and was having to use oxygen mask to be able to get a good breath.
We left the hospital at 12 noon and went shopping, and around 6pm, my brother in law calls my sister and tells her that Val, her name as well, had taken a turn for the worst and her iv came out and they couldnt get it in because her veins are so broken down and they were trying to do a pic line, and for some reason, they nicked her lung and caused her lung to collapse.
Her already labored breathing was made worse and she had to have a chest tube.
Now shes in ICU with a chest tube and a collapsed lung and pneumonia.
I am not big on asking anyone for prayer, I believe people do what they want or pray or not.
I dont consider myself a religious person, I am more spiritual.
But if you are a praying person, I ask that you would send one her way, for the sake of her 8 year old son.
So, other than that whole fiasco.
Yesterday I got all my shopping done.
Came home intending to clean and finish bagging up all the cookies and candy and I was just too beat to do anything.
I came home and set here watching tv and was in bed by 11pm and dead to the world.
Today, I will clean and deliver some candy and cookies to friends.
and wrap all the presents that are still unwrapped.
Get everything taken to my moms for the Christmas party and get it out of my house so I can acutally move around.
My family seems to be multiplying, what was once a family gathering of 6 or 7, is now a gathering of about 20.
and growing, my niece will have a little one here by next Christmas.
Next year, I have decided, its too much to buy gifts for everyone, or make candy and cookies for so many.
I am going to enjoy this one tradition one last year and next year, everyone is getting a gift card.
In holding with honesty and coming clean and confessions and admissions, I will share this, especially with those of you on my CDTB team, yesterday, I purchased a bottle of evan williams bourbon eggnog.
and a bottle of skinney girl cosmo which is cranberry vodka.
Why did I do this????
I am still asking myself this.
Especially since, not only is it high on the calorie list, and a no no in staying away from alcohol which I had done for probably 28 days or longer.
It was costly. The two bottles together were 30 dollars!!!!
30 dollars I could have used for so many other more important things.
But, I was weak. I was just thinking about myself in that moment, tired, sore and achy from walking and shopping and riding in the car all day.
I wonder if the liquor store takes unopened returns?

    Sending prayers for your sister in law. We found out yesterday that my husband does not have cancer. Prayers do help.

    Please don't beat yourself up about your purchase. This is a really tough time of year to be AF.

    Sounds like you purchased a great gift for the homeowner of the party you are going to! Wrap those bottles up nice and take them with you!

    As for your sister-in-law my word I have never heard a greater story for malpractice in my life. I will pray for her. I know your large family gathering is overwhelming but never underestimate how cherished your homemade gifts are! There are some that probably look back on your edible gifts as the meaning of the holidays. :) Perhaps you could delegate the task or maybe have a couple nieces come by to help next year in order to keep the tradition going.
