I want to wish everyone a happy new year, 2015! WOW! I can not even get a grip on the thought that it is 2015! Time is flying by so incredibly fast. My family had plans to spend the night at my darling sister-in-law’s house for the new year. We planned to have a game night and have a few adult drinks, but I got an emergency call from my Gram. She sounded completely delirious and confused. She had been sick a few days prior, I figured she was running a fever and hallucinating. I dropped everything and made arrangements for an emergency trip to Sault Ste. Marie, a 4 and a half hour trip. Thank God that I did not have to be any where for a few days. My family was very upset that I made the choice to go on this trip alone. I had a very bad feeling about the out come of the trip and felt it was better my boys not be there right now. My cousin Tracy also dropped everything and made the same trip, coming from the complete opposite directions.
Tracy and I arrived at Gram’s house with in 15 minutes of each other and decided, to get the ole’ gal dressed so we could take her out for a few cocktails. Two IV cocktails of fluids and antibiotics, before we left the emergency room she had some color to her face. We could tell she was feeling better because she was getting fidgety and ready to leave. The doctor sent us home with prescriptions to continue Grams healing and rest.
It was a horrible reason to see my cousin Tracy but she is really good for my soul! We were so tired sitting in the emergency room at 1 o’clock in the morning. We were giggling like silly teenage girls. It was great to see her.
I traveled home on Thursday morning and worked for a few hours and slept about 14 hours afterwards. It amazes me how an emotional few days can really wear me out! Gram is continuing to get better and should be on the road to a full recovery, she is the strongest woman I know.
