I've been away from blogging for so long I don't think anyone can hear me anymore! It's been such a crazy time for the past two or more months that I don't know if I'm coming or going!
First....Mr. Fix It was here for a month and boy did that go fast. I have so many great photos of mini-trips to share with you all if I can ever find time to blog! Here is a sneek peak:
Prickly Pear cactus ice cream from Tortilla Flat! Yummy!!!
Then just before Mr. Fix-it left, my brother flew in to stay for a month.
Kurt trying to nap with one of my day boarder dogs, Jessie.
Then......all you know what broke loose. Dad was admitted to the hospital with another blood clot. They don't want to put him on a blood thinner because he is a risk for falls and because he might not even remember to tell anyone if he did fall. He was in ICU for about 5 days and he fell twice in the hospital but fortunately didn't hurt himself. I don't know how he managed to escape hurting himself!!!
In the middle of all this, Mr. Fix-It had to go home. Sad. But at least my brother was here to help. Dad got so weak in the hospital that he had to go to a Rehab facility because he couldn't even walk. He's been there almost two weeks now and has complained loudly about it nearly everyday. To the point that I was so stressed, I almost gave up and brought him home last week. But I didn't cave because he is getting stronger and can walk a very short way with a walker!
They want him to stay for two more weeks but I think we will probably bring him home this weekend. That way, Kurt can be here with me to help for a couple of days before he has to go back home. Not much of a vacation for him but I am soooo grateful he was here!!
In the meantime....the desert is never boring. We had a hail storm that made it look like the ground was covered with snow.
And believe me it was freezing!!
But just a few days later.......
Back in the 80's and cactus blooming! (oh and rattlesnakes out too!)
You just never know what life is going to send your way! And with that....I'm off to see dad at rehab and find out what tribulations are brewing there today!!
