Sunday Check in

Its been a lovely weekend here.  The weather has been cool and cloudy. Perfect sleeping weather!  I love snuggling under the covers in the cold room.

I've taken time for myself this weekend.  I've been working on processing Jakes newest diagnosis.  I've been reading about epilepsy.  Its a scary thing!  All the new terminology to learn!  I guess its a good thing to be scared of it but I have to know how to handle Jakes if he has a seizure with me.  The first aid for a seizure person is pretty easy, don't do much of anything.  Turn them on their side, loosen any tight clothing, and protect their head.  Their seizure should stop on its own, but if it doesn't call 911.

I sent the diagnosis information to JF and his parents.  The last time I dropped Jakes off at the other grandparents house, Mam was very interested in what was going on.  On Friday, she called me to thank me for the information. She was SO happy that I'd sent it.  JF had given them the cliffs-notes version of it.  I told her I would scan in some other information for her and email it.  She loved it.

Neicy and I spent yesterday afternoon together, something we haven't done lately.  We were shopping for kitchen floor for me and she had a list of things to get pricing on at the home improvement stores.  We of course, ended up at Target and the mall for a lap around there.  Lots of girl talk and bitching.  Just what we both needed!

My parents and Kathy have been away since Thursday.  I got left home to care for the animals.  I don't mind, The Compound has been quiet!  Plus, the next time I want to go away and leave my animals home, they owe me!  lol

I went to my Uncle's funeral service Saturday morning.  It was good to see family and friends that I don't usually see.  It was sad because Uncle Don and Aunt Do are both gone.  But they are back together, which is what Uncle Don wanted. After being married for 56 years, he missed her so much.  There are so many good memories of growing up with them.  Uncle Don walked me down the aisle at my wedding.  Mom was sick and Dad wanted to be with her.  Plus he didn't approve of my choice of husband.  Uncle Don looked so proud standing with me on his arm at the back of the church.

Last night I curled up with a glass or two of wine, my Kindle and blankets by a camp fire.  It was a perfect evening for it!

Time to get moving, got laundry, cat box to scoop and dinner to get started!  Happy Sunday!
