STUFF & MORE STUFF!
11-1-09: Good Grief!!! The last three weeks have been nuts! Last night (early this morning) my mom's husband/my step-father (for 13 years) had a heart attack. He is in CCU and there is nothing they can do except maybe some medicine to prolong things. He is 83 and has multiple heart issues. Everything is blocked! So, he could last hours or ????? Of course, although she is doing well, Mom still is fighting colon cancer. This is not something she needs, at all! Craig and I visited Cal (step-father) today. He does not look good. While we were there, a nurse took Craig's blood pressure. Today it was 188/104! It is still WAY too high! But, it is down from 200/115. Hopefully we can get him into a doctor this week! I do think he is beginning to take this seriously, though. I told him if I had to wipe his drool and feed him baby food, over something he could prevent, I would be pissed! So, I think he gets it. What is it about men and doctors???? After the hospital we went to pick up a mattress and box springs from Chris' house. Sarah, the mother of my potential grandchild, is spotting. Actually, she is bleeding. She sees her doctor tomorrow. I am afraid she has had a miscarriage. We will see. I don't know how she and Chris will handle that. I had a miscarriage many, many, years ago. I understand the baby just wasn't okay. I do not know if they will get that. I am just hoping for the best and knowing this is not in my control! Craig's dad, thank goodness, seems to be doing okay. The family of our good friend, who passed away, is coping the best they can. I don't know anything about Craig's sister and how she is doing since the passing of her husband. And, I got my hair cut yesterday.....my hairdresser's 25 year old grandson has liver cancer and is choosing not to get treatment. Kenneth, the friend of Scott and Adam's who has been in a coma, is still in a coma, but does seem to be aware of some things. That is good news. The accident happened mid-July. Of course, even if he comes out of it, it is unlikely he will be the Kenneth we knew. (I will love him anyway!) Sadness, sadness....it is all around us. I just don't get it!
