Deja Vu Fall

Well, deja vu last autumn.

1. Sox will play the Angels in the ALDS. At least I'm not living in a hotel for two weeks. (Thank God says Sweden!)

2. And Mom is in the hospital again.

Fluid in one lung. And some odd things going on with her hands and feet. They're monitoring her blood every 4 hours. Something about her heart, which oddly they'd always said was in great shape. I guess it is up until the moment that it isn't.

I don't know anything more. Rather frustrating. I don't trust a single doctor. It has been this way for more years than I can remember. Whatever I hear, I just think, "Yeah, umhm, right." And wait 24 hours for them to say something different.

Of course, she doesn't want anyone to go visit her. And really, I get sick to my stomach just walking into a hospital.

But last year, one of my good HS friends didn't get a chance to say goodbye to his mother before she lost consciousness and she had a DNR and well....you know....those thoughts linger.

Every day we should cherish what we have and who we share it with.

Blah blah. Anyway. No crying. Hugs and all that.

NOTE: Really thought the exercise would drum up some hunger. It didn't. I found myself uninterested in eating until about 8:30 at night. What's up with that? I'll probably never see the 900s again as I am trying so hard not to overwork the knee. So far, so good.

Hope your mother gets better. Maybe you'll actually figure out what's going on. Best wishes!

I know, I'm a paranoid "what if" person myself. However, I'm sure your mom will be fine. Trust those crazy wacky doctors. I'm glad they are monitoring her closely. Prayers to you and her! Keep us posted, k????

I guess I should catch up on the rest of your blog since I'm about 11 days behind before commenting. But without going any further, I just wanted you to know that my heart goes out to you. I deeply appreciate the patience you've had with me during this trying time in regards to my grandmother passing and my thoughts and prayers are truly with you during this trying time. XOXO

you're like butter to me

Just a Lovable Party Girl
Sagittarius is born to travel the world and move upwards and outwards. Naturally gregarious, they love the idea of meeting different people and understanding foreign cultures. There is also a desire to broaden the mind too, with the possibility of many Sagittarians being lifelong students. Their outlook is generally optimistic and there is a distinct lack of concern over the smaller, practical details. A great sense of humor and a lack of petty mindedness are Sagittarian qualities too. Sagittarius is open -- open-minded, open-hearted and generous, up to a point. They like to get value and will not be quite so impulsive with their cash but they do have a natural ability to get on with people from many varied walks of life. They have an innate sense of wanting to help others and give them a hand up the ladder and can be wonderful and exciting companions. Expect an honest answer when you ask a question and maybe some long philosophic discussions into the night. Jovial, optimistic, versatile, open-minded, philosophical, sincere, frank, visionary.
