A Temporary Hiatus

Good morning my dear friends! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I was blessed to be able to spend the weekend with my mother. An unexpected vacation for me right now.

A week ago, young son had his broken wrist set in a cast. He will not be racing this summer while he heals. This will be stressful for all of us.

My father had another heart attack the same weekend Avery had his wrist fixed. It was not his first attack, and he stabilized quickly, is home recovering. When I saw him in the hospital, he looked great, as normal as is expected for him. His prognosis is not good, with his diabetes, congestive heart failure and emphysema. I am thankful for every day I have left with him.

Mom also had a heart attack the same weekend. This was totally unexpected. I always thought mom was invincible. I made the drive to Texas in record time. Mom is home from the hospital, but not cooperating well. Trying to change her to a heart healthy diet is a big task. And we are trying to teach her to take her blood pressure, and take the doggone medicine. She's stubborn. The hardest part of her recovery right now is getting her to understand that she needs to take it easy while the stents heal.

I will be staying in Texas a while. My heart and hands are full, so I will be on a temporary computer hiatus. I will return to my postings when I have had a chance to catch my breath!

Hugs to you all, have a great week!


  1. Oh my goodness Cindy! Yes, yes, your heart and hands are full! I have prayed for all of you there and back home. Avery will be going crazy/buggy this summer huh? What a blessing your medical training is for your parents!

  2. You and your family will be in my prayers. Hang in there. Hugs!

  3. My goodness, Cindy! I had no idea. I've been so busy lately that I haven't been staying caught up with my blog friends. I sure hope your mom, dad and son all feel better soon and that mending of all sorts take place. I'll keep you in my prayers. Take care of yourself as you take care of your family.

    Talk soon,

  4. Oh my, what a crazy weekend for you all! Prayers for your family, I hope it gets easier for you.
