Miscellaneous Stuff

Here it is September 1 and I'm REALLY behind on my blog once again. I'm sorry.  Too many things are happening again.

1. I turned 41 at the end of August.
2. Sam is getting ready to go back to school but in a completely different district.
3. Went on vacation and had a fabulous time.

Then my life got turned upside down.

My mom had a moderate stroke on August 27th.  She was in this coma-like state for about 2 days. I'm still not sure she completely knows who I am but she smiles when I walk in the room and I'll take it.  I'll take anything at this point.

It's very scary to say the least. Decisions have to be made and I'm the one to make them for her. She cannot speak and most of the time she will answer "yes" to anything.  She also has to relearn how to swallow again. Found out yesterday that she still loves her sugar cookies. 

I do have a support system for myself and mom but right now I'm exhausted to no end.  Simple things around the house take forever and a day to complete.  But I have to be strong for mom and my kids.  

It's been a LONG week and it's going to be a long road ahead of us for quite sometime. Prognosis? Still too early to tell. Will she ever be able to go back to her own house again? Not sure. I hate the unknown it bothers me.
