BREAKER-BREAKER~What Will Happen Next?

How things can change on an instant moment. Busy doing something you enjoy doing (or have to do, if that is the case), and then BOOM! Like an explosion, your world changes, and everything you were doing, or all your plans are put on hold. Life is a bitch sometimes, ain't it!

If my memory serves me well, the last time I even thought about my blog was a week ago Sunday. I was writing in my journal on things to consider putting in a blog, and also working on eBay, and then the phone call came. BREAKER - BREAKER, needed at the emergency room, problem with your son! My son will be 25 in a few days, but he is still my son, and I was needed to hold his hand. (I remember holding it so well that night, and memories I felt of the comfort of his warmth in the palm of his hand when he was so young and little.) He was running a fever, so cold, and threw up blood, and I have to admit the emergency room attendants were wonderful and so caring. He was released that night, and we took him to his apartment, and when I got home, the bed looked so inviting. I slept or piddled around most of the next day in confusion. Tuesday would be a new day, and a new start. So to speak.

Wednesday was to be our best day. I mean we had a list of things we needed to get done and goals for that day. And we were well on our way, and very ambitious of what we were doing until about 2 that afternoon, and then ~BREAKER-BREAKER, another emergency call. My youngest daughter who just turned 21 (and very independent in her own way) was rushed into emergency surgery for a staph infection on her hand (Think Rosie O'Donnel). This was extremely serious, and could have been deadly. She was very sick, and she just got out of the hospital the other day. The infection was so bad that they had to slice her hand in 4 places. Split the thumb, split the top of her hand, and split in 2 places underneath two of her fingers. This infection started only 2 days before she had to have surgery. (I intend to write a blog on this at a near future date on this infection, and hospital care and drugs when I get a chance to breath again.)

Anyway, for those that think I have had nothing to say, OH, think again, and I hope that no more BREAKER-BREAKER comes into effect before I get the chance. This entire week has give me many things to think and write on.

By the way, I have been reading the blogs when time allows, especially on my reading list, and I will comment soon, and think they are great. Also, will be writing on blogs that I want to comment on, (but can't on the blogs I want to, as they will not allow the comments to go through) , but want to and will voice an open minded opinion on narrow minded blogs, per my blogs.



  1. I'm glad to hear your kids are recovering. I had to smile as I read your post, because my mother still frets over me and I'm more than twice your daughter's age!

    Welcome back.

  2. whoa....can't wait to see where this is all going!!! I hope all is now well with your family. I am praying for my grandchildren to get over their horrific colds. Breaks my heart to see them soo sick...never ends does it??!!
    Hang in there momma...and hurry and tell all... ; )

  3. Oh good gracious Katie. I thought you had fallen off of the face of the earth. Sorry about the children being ill but I'm sure they felt tons better with their mother there. Get some rest :)

  4. Hi all,

    Thank you so much for wishing my daughter well. And she is MUCH better. She will not be able to use her hand for awhile, and that is frustrating for her, but life goes on.

    Indigo Black, I did not fall off the earth, LOL, but thought about jumping off the earth, then realized I needed a rocketship to get off the earth, and they are to expensive to rent! The only other choice on leaving the earth was to die, and decided that was not a good idea right now. LOL
