The cute avitars they had for facebook. Bit strips. This is me and mom. One of our many adventures together. I so miss her. I love you mom.
A day at the Capitol, This was the first trip that I took with her and my stepdad when they came to visit me In September of 2013. She loved going down to the Capitol, her and I were alike, when it came to exploring new places. I remember several times going to the Capitol with her, we finally even ate at the Capitol Grille a couple of times. These are the very good memories that I will keep.
And so do I… Day by day, as I wake from each one. Daylight gives way to nighttime, and it continues on. Today back to work, for both me and dad. He took off, to deal with social security, and also a doctor’s appointment. He is going to have to keep an eye on his high blood pressure, it was a bit high, and they found he is a little anemic. Bills are getting paid, slowly, and a bit late, but still being paid.
Yesterday, I donated money to a go fund me, for a friend on facebook, who is trying to pay for fees to get to see his little boy. I felt really strong about donating to his fund, I myself had set up a go fund me, to help pay for bills for when mom died, and what I got was very helpful, and it just made me want to pay it forward to someone else that may be in need.
This is true, life does go on, and so do I.
My mom that is, today is probably her last day staying at the hospital at St. David’s Round Rock, she will be moving into a Rehab facility for a week or so. Senior Care home, where they will continue to work with getting her up on her feet, so that she may come home. I am totally exhausted, and I know she is as well. It is no fun, when the one you love is ill. I try to hold back the tears in the presence of others, and even mom, but when I go home, I cry silently. It is so very hard. She is making some progress, I pray to God every day and night, and along the day. I know prayer changes things.
I took the day off work today, so that I could get some things done around their apartment, you know, laundry, and cooking and cleaning it up. Especially for my dad, so that when he comes in, he won’t have to worry about any thing, and we can go strait to the hospital to see mom. Usually I get to see her when I get out of work on the days I leave around 5:30, otherwise, I get out around 8 and that’s just way to late to be heading there. I don’t complain, it’s all good. I have employment, and I am a bit closer to home, so at the moment it works out.
I really, hope that they can get her some home health care that is within her coverage, praying everyday, because she is definitely going to need it to get better once she is totally released and sent home.
That is it for now, until the next update. Hope your day is going well.
With the family, gathered around my mom’s hospital bed. Looking on as the doctors come in and out, with news for the day. It looks promising, they looked at her feet, and listened to how much blood flow she was getting to it. It is a lot better today, than yesterday afternoon, it got better thought the night, and today, is a bit more better. Still no word on if they are going to keep her where she is in Round Rock, or transfer to South, should know something tomorrow. I am heart happy about the news, just keep on praying that the blood cots dissolve and her platelets are up high enough where they can do the necessary procedures to get the clots out. In the coming days, something will be known. For now, I am ecstatic with the progress going on. Blessings goes to the man upstairs lol. Updates will be had when more happens.
Merry Christmas family, friends, and online readers… Much has gone on this week. The biggest thing for me is I got laid off from my job, well not only me, but a whole lot of people got the axe. A week ago. I really did not hit me for a couple of days that I was jobless, but none the less, here I am, in the process of looking for new work. I had my little pity party the day I got canned, now all that is done and over with, and it is now time to look, and search hard for a new job. I have put in aplications, and I am so very thankful that my mom and dad live here, because they can help me out a little with things. I am positive everyday that I will be getting a new job if not today, tomorrow, in the coming weeks. Hey, new year,new job, new insight on life. I am not worried, I know I will get something really soon. That was really the biggest thing that happened to me over this week, and today it is Christmas day. I am loving life, and enjoying it with every day The good Lord sees fit for me.
Today, mom and dad, and I went for a ride out to Waco, TX. I do love long rides, since I don’t drive, I am a awesome rider. The weather was cloudy, and there was a winter nip in the air, it was a pretty perfect Christmas for me. Just about the way I like them to be. Since I am not a cold weather person, I prefer to have a blue sky kind of winter Christmas day, hey, it is just the kind of person I am. For me, the weather has been awesome. Still like a spring /fall kind of week.
Soon the year will be ending, and a new year will be starting, I look forward to another beginning. Here’s to a very merry Christmas my friends, family, and readers. Hope that your day is just as Merry.
New things that is, I will not know how good I can be at something, if first I never step forward to try it. So it goes. Today I put in an application to a job, a customer service job, ever since I heard about this company coming here, I have been thinking about putting in a job, at first I did not know where they were going to build it, but a month ago just on a ride to check out the Kirkland’s I saw the building, and today I have put in an application there. So basically it can be either a Yes, or a No, but either way, I have stepped forward into putting myself in that position. Yes, this is a new year for me, and with that new year, I am all about new things and adventures for my life, so send out prayers of goodness for me, and great things on new journeys. I know there are new and sweeter opportunities out there for me. Today I have put it out there in the universe and on the website!!!
Today I am… In A Battle! With all that is inside of me, the inner demons that try to control my emotional state of being, this is a hard battle, one that I will be victorious over, one that I will fight until I can overcome. I know that sometimes, probably more than not, that I do not make a whole lot of sense with things, but my battle will be won, I will not allow the devil to keep me prisoner of my emotional state. Everyday I pray for blessings, for Grace and to be renewed. To forgive and be forgiven of my sins, I know God hears and does so. God is so good in my life. I will be a victor, and not a victim.
Today I am… In A Battle.
Today I am… Strengthened By His Word. Yes, His Word is my strength. For I am nothing and can do nothing without Him. Thank You my Lord, my Saviour. You give me power and joy, you take these tears and make me whole. I praise your Wholly Name.
Today I am… Strengthened By His Word.
Today I am… Thanking God! Yesterday my dad’s surgery went very well, they are just waiting for him to heal up before they have to go back in and put the lens in, once that is done, he will see perfectly clear out of that eye. He has a cataract in the other eye, but it isn’t a very big one, and once the other is all clear and healed, they will take the other one out, boy what a process that is, but once it is done he will have great vision back. Praise God! Thanks for the prayers as well.
Well it seems my sister and nephew are going to attempt to come down here on their own Saturday, I am praying they get knowledge on the way down, especially since the only time they have been here is when they have ridden down with my mom, but the true test of it all will be Saturday… Stayed Tuned.
Just one more day after today and I will have 3 days off. So looking forward to it all. Anyhow, must get myself all ready, so here’s to having a great day my friends and reader’s.
Today I am… Thanking God!
