We're Home!

We're home from our road trip to Colorado. In all, I drove 3,612 miles in seven states and experienced snow, rain, sleet, wind and glorious sunny weather! Sweety, Maggie and I had a wonderful time visiting our son and hated to leave. I'll be posting pictures later this week.

I know I promised to draw a name for my give-away but that will have to wait a few days as well. As some of you are aware, my Sweety had a stroke 6 years ago and has some residual physical affects to his left side. We drove to our daughter's house yesterday to pick up the grandsons as she is out of town and we have to watch them the rest of the week. Well, Sweety got out of the car without his cane and proceeded to fall off her front porch - splat - onto the concrete driveway, face hitting the ground, blood everywhere and glasses scratched. Luckily, a nurse was across the street and came and helped while I dialed 911. They said he looked alright but that I may want him looked at. Off to the e.r. after getting the boys situated with my mom. Six hours later we were on our way home. Thankfully, nothing is broken, which is a big worry with his mobility problems. He hit his nose really bad and it is swollen and his eyes black and blue. It may need plastic surgery at a later date. He sprained his wrist and fingers of his "wonky" hand rather than his good hand which is a praise. He smashed his left knee and it is the size of a grapefruit. Miraculously, nothing was broken!!!! He just looks like he went 10 rounds with a boxer and lost! We got home and to bed at 2:00 a.m. and he's still zonked out on some really good meds!! This on the same day we get home from vacation. **I just got a call from an emergency room physician. They reviewed his cat scans again and feel that he may have a fracture in his left forearm after all and we will have to be taking him to an orthopedic doctor soon. Good grief!!!

A quilting friend of mine found out just last week that her husband had cancer and he passed away last night. So in the scheme of things I don't have anything to complain about. Please be in prayer for my friend Debbie and her family.

Like I said, I'll draw for my give-away later this week. In the meantime, I'm going to go take a nap.......

OH NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Well, it is a good thing that this didn't happen in Denver! Wishing Mr. S. a quick recovery! If you need anything at all, please let us know. Mr. SCD can help, too.

Glad to hear that you made it home safe and sound. I am sure "son" was glad to have his parents and Miss Maggerdoodles there.

((((hugs)))))

So sorry about you friend and about your Sweety's fall. My husband had a *small* stroke this summer and I am grateful for small blessings. Hope he heals well and fast.

HI Sweetie!
I'm catching up on your blog. Oh sweet Jesus, bring quick healing to your Man! Oh goodness... but as others have said I'm glad you both were so close to home. I'm praying for you both because I know you'll be his nurse at home.

And Prayers for precious widow as well.

Hugs,
Janeen
