AWOL

This has been a really stressful weekend - On Friday the nursing home called - they had sent my mother to the hospital. Her heart rate was very low and they wanted to monitor it. She was there in the Emergency room for hours, they finally got her into a room, but her heart rate did not regulate so they moved her to MICU and scheduled her for a pacemaker which she received today. According to her doctor if everythings goes well and her heartrate stabilizes they will release her back to the nursing home.

If that is the case, then I leave for FLA Wednesday morning and while I will have my computer and will be checking my email, I doubt I will have time to post. I have to tell you I am so tired - I can barely keep my eyes open. I didn't sleep well last night and was up really early so I could head over to the hospital this morning, I was dozing as I was sitting in my mothers room. I was so out of it I dented my car today in the parking lot of Stop and Shop cause I misjudged the space between the column and my car. I am going to watch the rest of the Ranger game and crawl into bed.

Good night.....
