Valentine Day was short lived at our house. I had the most beautiful card on my keyboard when I got up. Harry always has the perfect cards for me. All was quiet, coffee steaming, kitty purring, and the old folks were content. Then it happened - the phone call.
My DIL (the grandson's mom) was in real distress this morning. She was unable to walk, bad headache, and nausea. My son called and of course Harry and I took the boys. The oldest went on to school and I picked him up after his Valentine party. The youngest developed a problem with his eyes as the morning wore on. (Pink Eye) Mommy and Daddy are at the emergency room where Mommy is having more tests than I can count. CAT scan, x-ray, EKG, blood work and more. It was a long day. The boys were with us and they managed to stay busy and not worry. It's normal for them to spend the day here so things seemed normal to them. The medical community let Mommy go home with meds.
When Mommy was tucked in at home I went to their house to manage things while Daddy took the youngest son to the doctor for his eyes. They came home with meds for pink eye. My son had class tonight and the professor was doing a cursive review for finals so I pushed him out of the house to attend class. I had no problem managing the boys and Mommy. When Daddy came home I rushed home to watch Lost.
We're not 100% sure what is going on with Mommy but there are no tumors and tests look OK. At this point they are calling it "an inner ear problem" and have given her meds for vertigo and nausea. Time will tell - We pray that it will respond in a day or so.
Never know what the next day will bring. Right?? Even with all the rushing and confusion we still have many things to be thankful for.
