In memory in pictures:
I remember the day like it was yesterday. The day before mom called me and said she was feeling like something was going to happen the next day and she was afraid to be alone with dad that night. I went in and spent the night with mom and dad. Early the next morning I went to my house and that is when the first plane hit the tower. I was mesmerized and couldn't quit watching TV for most of that day and the next day. Eerie that Mom knew something was going to happen, she thought it was with dad. Dad was fine but a lot of people three thousand miles away weren't. May they rest in peace and may we never be attacked like that again.
On to my update. As they say in blog circles, what a freaking week. Mom almost died. My brother-in-law couldn't get out of bed due to severe muscle pain.
Mom got her blood pressure medication mixed up with her pain medication. She discovered it but was scared to tell sis and myself. She finally told sister and she called the pharmacist. Mom took four blood pressure pills and no pain pills. Here blood pressure was so low that she probably should have called 911. The pharmacist said give mom some coffee immediately. I knew that but Mom didn't call me. The pharmacist also said to drink a lot of water so that it will flush out her system. She took her blood pressure every hour and it finally got up to normal levels. I'm kind of upset that Mom didn't want to tell either my sister and I. I am also upset that nobody told me until the next day.
Brother-in-law is now in his second day without pain. Yea!!
Two crisis averted one relative stressed out. That would be me.
Monday and Tuesday nights at Mom's. Wednesday, Thursday, & Friday no night but lunches and dinners. Today a day of rest. Watched the Oregon game, they beat Nevada 69-20. In between finished five tax returns and delivered them to Mark. Starting cleaning out my garage. My mind is next.
Next week. Tomorrow breakfast with the guys. Monday and Tuesday more getting things done on my to do list. Wednesday night at Mom's. Thursday day at Mom's, until 8 PM. Friday and Saturday play or dealing with crisis.
