Great and Not so Great


Cousin Emerson got home on Saturday. He was in the hospital since February 2. He had jaw surgery and a herniated diaphragm fixed. He went home without O2, free of the ventilator and no NG tube. He was happy to see his brothers once again. Now he's a silent sleeper, which makes Aunt Terra nervous. Nervous because she can't hear him breathing. She'll get used to it. I'm glad that he can breathe clear.

On the 28th, I signed my boys and their cousins Evan and Elijah up for a Super Hero Party at the Y. They are going to spend the night that night. I thought that would be fun.

Not so Great

Great Grandma Kent that has Alzheimer's disease is getting worse. She now forgets to eat. It's sad to see/hear about someone going downhill that once was on top of it all. She used to make us home cooked meals, she had cookies in the cookie jar, played card games with us and took us garage sale shopping.

Grandpa Spiehs is having Atrial Fibrillation/Pulmonary Vein Ablation Procedure. It's a 3 to 4 hour procedure. He's had fibrillation issues for a long time. The meds he's taking are not working as they should and the side effects are horrible. I'm hoping this surgery helps him!

While I'm thrilled on the news about Emerson, I'm terribly sorry about the health issues with your other relatives. :(

So glad to hear that Emerson is doing so much better!!!!!
I know that it will take time for his mom to adjust to the changes though...
As for your other relatives, I am so sorry to hear that... I know how it is, my grandad suffers from dementia, so we are having issues as well...

Yay for Emerson! I can relate to the quiet sleeping. Chris snores pretty loudly through out the night. However when he does go silent it gets to me! She will adjust that is for sure
And I hate hearing about your GreatGrandma. I went through the same thing with mine. She passed when I was 21 and she will forever hold such a dear place in my heart!
Prayers for Grandpa as well!
