Either life gets too hectic at times...or I'm becoming a huge procrastinator. Honestly, it's probably both. October flew by and here are some highs and lows of the last month:
We went camping with friends the first weekend of October. It was a chilly and wet weekend...but it could have been much worse. It could have snowed.
The second week of October, my sisters and I headed down to Nashville to visit my dad in the hospital. He's totally into drama and giving us gray hair. I got a phone call during their trip out east that he was having trouble breathing and they flew into Nashville so he could be admitted to the hospital. He arrived with heart failure, lung failure, and kidney failure. I arrived with six bags full of food and snacks and two-fully packed suitcases. As much as my sisters teased me about over packing they were happy with all the food and extra clothes since we ended up spending six days in the ICU. Thankfully my dad improved enough to be released after two long weeks in a germ-infested hospital. He's still on the road to recovery, but hopefully he continues to get a little better each day.
|We had to wear masks while they tested my dad for TB. |
I gladly wore mine so I wouldn't get the plague anywhere else in the hospital. (Did I ever admit to being a total germaphobe?)
We got our first snowfall on Oct. 24th. Luckily it didn't last for long because I hadn't switched my closets around yet and didn't have any long underwear or flannel pajamas upstairs.
