Weekend Recap: Where Did This Weekend Go?

Weekend Recap: Where Did This Weekend Go?

So this weekend didn’t go as planned.  It felt like a non-weekend…except for Sunday.  Here’s how it went down.

We were planning on going Friday evening to a friend’s house to trick or treat with my life group folks.  We were going to be Lucy and Ricky (from I Love Lucy – a costume I’ve wanted to do FOREVER).  So we got dressed and were headed out.

This is the only picture I got dressed up.  As we left, mom asked us to go check on Gram.  Mom and Dad were out of town for the night….and Gram wasn’t answering the phone.  Well, when we showed up- we could tell something wasn’t right.  She had slept ALL day, had an accident in bed, and was not right.  She could hardly walk (was SUPER weak) and was doing cooky things.  She tried putting underwear on her head, tried answering the alarm clock….was using words wrong.  So we convinced her to let us take her to the ER.

Well, being Halloween night…it was a bit busy.  We got there around 6 or so….and we got her into a room maybe around 9:30ish.  They did a CT scan, x-rays, blood tests….and poor Gram…they couldn’t get an IV in her.  So late in the evening they decided to admit her for more testing (thinking she had a stroke), but had to get an IV first.  SIX different people tried to get an IV, but her veins kept blowing.  She ended up getting a central line.  We got her settled and got home after 3 a.m. And yes, I took the wig off, but we were both “in costume” the whole time at the ER. ha!

We slept some…but I woke up at like 7 a.m.  I did some cleaning, took mom’s car back to her house (we had taken their car to the hospital), got donuts, and went back to bed around 11.  We got up around 1:30 and got some breakfast. Then we visited Gram again.  We left her and came home to take Mikey for a walk- since he had been home alone for so long on Friday night.

Sunday, we heard from the doctor that he thought Gram had a seizure…so they started her on seizure meds.  She got to go home Sunday afternoon.

Sunday was also my first day as a greeter at church! I really enjoyed it!

After church, we got some lunch and went to Tyler’s grandpa’s farm.  We love it there.  Me and Tyler’s cousin Kelsey usually take naps together in the living room (which we did!) and then everyone hangs out outside.  This is the view: chairs, cars open with lots of guns and toys in the back…and the old buildings.  One of grandpa’s barns burnt down last month…which was sad to stand there and see (you can see it the pumpkin carving photo below).

We never got around to carving our pumpkin Friday night because of Gram being in the hospital…so we decided to blow it up!

They put some tannerite inside and set it far away in the field.

When you shoot the tannerite, it blows up.  See the pumpkin chunks flying?! Ha!

After the gorgeous sunset, we started a little fire for smores.

It’s so nice to just sit around with family.

One funny thing was I kept going inside checking on my phone charging.  And during one trip, the horses had come up to the house.  I took some time to pet sweet Sugar…and when I went in, Sugar waited at the steps outside for me- like a dog! ha!  Loved it!

So all in all, we had a GREAT Sunday and a little bit of a crazy weekend.  I’m thankful Gram will be ok…and I’m glad we got some rest despite the craziness.

 

How was your weekend?
