You never know when you’ll get thrown a curve!

23 Aug

Well, today started out really good.  I slept unusually well last night, was awake BEFORE the alarm went off–beds made, house picked up fairly well (some dishes left in the sink to get to later), dressed, makeup on and headed to Lowe’s to make an appliance purchase.  New washer and dryer is in the budget this year, but I just haven’t gotten around to it—-you know.  Don’t we all just DIE to go buy a washer/dryer combo.  Anyway…I know Kid #1 will be coming home with loads of laundry and I have been wanting a high capacity set. 

So…for the sake of having company, I invited my mom to go with me.  While negotiating what I thought to be a really nice deal with Lowes (they actually called Best Buy in another city to comp the item) my mom sits down and holds her head, going suddenly quite pale.  The salesman asks if she was okay and she says no.  Mom is diabetic and I am accustomed to drops in her blood suger.  The guy goes and gets her a coke and some peanut butter and crackers.  Usually after eating, she begins to get better.  Didn’t happen so well today.  I offered to take her to ER there, but she wanted to eat lunch thinking she would feel better.  Didn’t feel better, so we came home straight to the clinic where she saw Dr. Christy who ordered bloodwork and admitted her. 

So…….what began as a productive day did a quick change to carrying for mom.  You just never know when you’re going to get thrown a curve ball——ya think that’s why we are exhorted to be reason in season and out??????

    Oh Cindy! What a day! I pray that your mom returns to good health quickly. Thank God that you asked her to go with you or she may have been alone when her episode started.

    Love ya and missed you tonight!
