Wow! A week has just flown by. I have been in Michigan helping out my Mom and spending time with family. I spend last Sunday with Julie and Paul and kids. They are all doing well and keeping busy. They have gone away now until Tuesday, Mom and I are with their kids. I went to Ikea for the first time with Julie, Paul and My sister-in-law Janette. It is a massive place! I went to get toy storage for the kids toys. You could end up with a whole house if you are not careful. We were supposed to go out for lunch but the time got away from us. Thank you to Janette and Julie for their help and opinions on colors for the kids bins and for the opinions on their bedding! (By the way-- Both look great in our house! Now we just needs you two to come and visit us to see your handywork!!!)
I have spent a lot of time with Mom. I am worried about her. She has been having Diaphragm problems. They have taken X-rays, CT scans, Stress tests and a Breath test to find out why she is having trouble breathing and what parts of her body it is affecting. I hope they can tell her soon! She has an appointment to see her doctor on April 1st. The X-ray showed that her diaphragm is larger on one end and her lungs are pushing on it. The doctors think that it might be paralysed either by disease, injury or by nerves being pinched. Hopefully it will work itself out or they can fix it! She is so tired and never stopps going! Our very own family Energizer Bunny. I have done a bit of shopping while here, helped Mom out and decided to stay instead of going back only to turn around in a few days to get Emma back.
Today we are going to Heidi's for Dinner. We are running a bit behind because I thought the van was leaking oil. We needed to get the oil changed but didn't yet and I had parked it in the driveway (not knowing Heidi had parked her car there last night). When I got home from Church I parked it in a different place and noticed a puddle of oil on the driveway! I called Adam who told me what to look for and be careful of, it is so nice to have someone in the family who knows cars and engines! THANK YOU SO MUCH ADAM!!! I then drove around O-ville looking for the oil that is the right one for the van. When we reached Heidi to tell her we were going to be late she said "that was from MY car". OH. So off we go now to her house, she made turkey! YUM!! Then to Mom's to pack up the cars and go spend the last 2 days at Julie's.
