|Ball State birdies!|
Ahh yes, I went to pick DJ up. I left on the Thursday the 5th. I went to the casino, I left $3 up. That was probably the only good thing that has happened as of late. Friday the 6th, DJ and I fought and loaded up the van, went to eat at my beloved Captain D's and headed home. Right as we hit Indianapolis, my SIL, Cindy called. She was frantic trying to find out what was going on with my MIL, Donna. Donna had bronchitis and then wasn't able to walk. Needless to say, it was a miserable and mad dash home. We made it home in decent time considering we hit rush hour traffic. We unloaded the van and then drove back to the hospital to see Donna. And to be honest, I thought we were going to end up burying her.
Anna, love her dearly, does not handle stress well. Den asked how she was doing and my answer was, "it's Anna." She sobbed uncontrollably and then booked a flight in. Yup, the next morning I had to drive back to Chicago and pick her up. My poor, poor van. Ol' Girl got a work out.
I drove us straight to the hospital from O'Hare. My MIL was overjoyed to see her. Anna was a bit concerned that the shock of her flying in would kill her. But good news, it didn't kill her in fact, she seemed to perk up a bit even. We all decided that if anything ever happens to Donna, we will just have to get a double wide coffin and throw Anna in there too. They both thought that it was a good plan. Anna said she doesn't want to ever carry on without her grandma. Cute but they are both crazy.
Anna stayed until Monday night and then I drove back to O'Hare in a horrific storm. So tired of driving!
The good news is my MIL is out of the hospital. She is weak but doing better. It's going to be a long road though.
DJ has been a huge help lately. He's a good kid but we will see how I feel about him in about a month. ;p
I'm going to try and get to visit everyone soon. I missed everyone and I noticed that my patience were a bit short from not getting to write. I'll be back in the swing of things soon, I hope.
I really did miss you, my friends. And I thank you for all of the support and wonderful comments.
