Just another sloppy, unedited installment of the random thoughts running around in my head today…
Dad’s actual surgery went well but the recovery has not gone so well. One of his kidney’s has limited function so there has been a concern about his urine output. He has not been able to be weaned off the oxygen and after some testing they discovered that he had a heart attack. They put in several stents and he is in the Critical Care Unit. I’m going to try to go down again this weekend to see him and to have a talk with my sister and her kids about things.
There are five adults living in that house and not everyone is pulling their fair share. Things need to change and they need to change before Dad goes home from the hospital. Not sure how that conversation is going to go but I know that Dad is under stress from the way things are not being done. He’s 87 years old and he has earned the right to take it easy and let someone younger start taking care of him.
I’ve been helping out at Vacation Bible School this week and it has been a lot of fun. I’d forgotten how affectionate the little ones can be. It is so good to see them singing and playing and having a good time together. This is the boy’s first year to be a helper and he has done a pretty good job so far. He needs to be reminded to focus but he is good with the little ones.
Haven’t done much of anything in the garden – haven’t even really looked at it too closely because I just don’t have the time to get in there and do anything this week.
The girl is staying at her rental for another month but is supposed to be out August 1st. Still hasn’t found anything but she’s looking at lots of places.
More car trouble – the air conditioner was not working when we went to my dad’s and then last night it stalled out several times as I was coming home. Smoke came pouring out of the hood so I decided to leave it at the garage and walk home. The mechanic checked it out and says nothing is wrong. I have no desire to try to drive it 200 miles this weekend so I’m going to switch with the hubby and take his car. I’ll let him drive it around for awhile and make sure there is nothing wrong.
Until next time, I hope you are having a wonderful day wherever you are.
