Lot of things have been going on

We had company last Tuesday. Saturday we went to a church party at a member's home. I ate too much!! My step-dad fell down the bottom step going into the basement. Gary offered to take him to ER but he didn't want to go. Sunday morning he called at 5:30 a.m. and wanted Gary to take him to ER. Gary is really good at helping him. They went to the ER in Wichita and sat for almost 3 hours. There was a lady there so sick that she was laying in the waiting room floor. They left and went to a new hospital in the city where we do assistant living lesson. The X-Ray showed that his ankle wasn't broken .... which is really good. He wanted to stay at his house but we told him that he needed to stay here. I told him that I had taken the sheets off of the bed and put clean ones back on. lol The ER doctor told him to go to his family doctor about water on his knee. Him and Gary left, going by his house, and then going to the doctor at 11:15. He is wanting to stay home but I told him he could stay here until we go to assistant living in the morning. Nothing like home, is there? lol


My step-dad got up early this morning and Lakota was guarding his door. He was able to walk around him and go in the bathroom. He went back to bed. When he got up the 2nd time he had to call Gary because Shawnee was blocking the hall way and would not let him come into the dinning room. She was not being mean... just being stubborn and not moving so he could get through with his walker. lol He normally does not use a walker but is using it now to take weight off of his ankle.


Well, I had best get up and get something done... even if it is not right! lol All of you are in my prayers. Love, hugs, and prayers, Janie

It's good your step dad has you around to help him out. It's not good for them to be by themselves when they are not feeling well.
Hope he's better soon.

Glad Gary helps out with your step dad when need be. Takes some stress off you I would think. Hope he feels better soon and you have a good week.

Janie, It is a good thing your step dad didn't break anything. Emergency room, don't you just love'em! Nothing like having an emergency and having to wait 3 or 4 hours. I agree there nothing like home. Kelly

Janie, first I do not have a virus in my computer. I had it checked plus I have protection from Road runner for my entire computer and did the same with McAffee also have windows defender. If you do not want that award that is fine with me. Like I told Kelly it is no skin off my nose. I only did the best I could and I know I struggle with the computer but I HAVE FUN WITH MINE and I am not a professional and never will be. A new blogger is helping me do links. Sorry if I am not as computer smart as a lot of people are , but I intend to keep right on doing what I am doing while I can and everyone has a choice to read it or click off it.
