Tons of stress around here. Good and bad things. I shouldn't say bad...difficult may be a better choice of word. First to all those people who did pray for us, thank you, they have been heard and answered. My husband's father is out of the hospital and successfully is finishing up the process of his stem cell transplant. Situations that we had set up to help him and my husband's mother were disrupted badly by a family member who was irresponsible and selfish. That person is paying a price in jail now. The focus is, my husband's father is back at home and finishing up his 100 appointments after his stem cell transplant.
Hubby and my oldest son (who's bday is today!) both got promotions and raises. They both work for the same company. I am proud of them both! My middle son has landed a short term teaching job that could pay off in the future when his career starts. He is still a junior in college. Proud of him too. All three of my boys have their birthday's in March, pretty close together so we have been trying to make sure we take time to make them feel special no matter what is going on. My youngest is finishing up spring break and relaxing. He is helping me let the guy in to fix the water heater, or rather, replace it. We have some April fool's day pranks to pull on Dad we need to set up today before his dad comes home too.
I am getting over 3 nasty cases of sick. This week was full of throwing up. I have stopped that for a full 24 hours and just feel weak and dizzy. I am hoping to come back quickly from it. We had some wind storms that did some numbers on our vehicles, including our oldest son's. Mine is currently fixed, my son's got fixed, my husband is waiting to get his fixed. Then my hubby ran into my oldest son's car too! He was in too big of a hurry and wasn't looking where he was going and wham! It took that to help my husband see he is more stressed than he wants to admit. We got a window out and need to cut a tree down. Like I said our water heater broke...sewer issues probably from the tree too...oh when it rains it pours. But that is ok, his dad made it through the transplant and that is what is important.
My mom fell in the shower and broke some ribs, she is feeling better. My father had a small stroke to which he doesn't think he did. That is fine now too, he was all checked out. And the weirdest thing for me. My neighbor is now in home hospice. I am having the hardest time with him most. I am incredibly emotional about it. I think I see him like a grandfather to me. I have known him for 21 years. His wife was an amazing mother figure to me to which I never had in my life. And she passed sever years ago quickly of lung cancer. She never smoked and it was sudden. She passed this time of year too. I know he will pass soon too. He will be in better hands and wont be in pain anymore. I tear up as I write this. It is an end of a family that has lived there for generations and generations. My heart is breaking. Even though this man has been very nice to us, mean to me, but was there anytime we needed him....we try to do whatever we can for him over the years. I don't want to cry.
I have been eating out of control. Ever since my doctor appointment. Which went incredibly well. I guess stress got to me. My back is still bothering me. I am trying to be patient and give it the time it needs. Last night I had a dream I went to my doctor for help with my back but he kicked me out without explanation.
Ok, I have the last birthday cake of the month to frost and decorate, April fools pranks to prepare and a water heater guy to let in.
I am thinking of all of you. Grateful for all of you too.
