Hospital stay...

Hospital stay but NOT for me. My wife's dad went in yesterday (Thursday) for Congestive Heart Failure and they kept him overnight. He is 92 and drove himself, then called us and let us know where he was.

If they let him out today he plans to drive himself back home. That's what he thinks. That's not what my wife plans.

He thinks he can still drive and do all the things he used to do but not so much anymore. But I'm not the one to make those decisions. I did that years ago for my dad. It's time for someone else to make those decisions.

I will just sit back and wait...

They DID NOT let him go home. He had to stay several more days, then just when we thought they were going to keep him for ever more days, he called my wife EARLY Sunday morning about 7:30 to tell her "The Doctor released him, and he was packed and ready to go home."

Toke my wife by surprise. She is on the list as his 'power of attorney' and they did not even call her. Course, he dad only tells her what he wants to. She managed to find out that the heart issues are to serious to handle right now so her dad just said "NO, he will probability die soon anyway". He's 92 so you just don't know. Come to find out the diabetic nurse has not seen him yet, the nurses have not released him yet, we have taken his car home so there is not much he can do but WAIT for my wife to get there.

Ten he calls back to ask if she just wants to pick him up at the "emergency room where they started last Thursday". My just told him "NO", just sit in the room till I get there". But he does not really understand.

She is going to have problem when she does get there but I wish he the best.

God's Not Dead....

God's Not Dead, He's Surely Alive.

I just finished watching God's Not Dead 2 - AGAIN. And it was just as good as the first time I saw it - maybe better. I was a great story even though I KNEW what was about to happen.

It again lifted my spirits - which have been down. I still want a job and I'm still looking through the paper every day and I know God will point me in a direction but which direction I don't know yet.

My wife has been busy 'teaching' with her youth orchestra classes, busy working from time to time with my son's new job, plus the church choir and our granddaughter's school but I'm just left sitting here. She scampered off this morning to do a local "petting zoo" for the youth orchestra - which I call a "playing zoo" where they show off the instruments to little kids in hopes of getting them interested in orchestra.

I'm left reading through the classifieds looking for any job possibilities. from there I intend to mail my applications. Who knows what God may have in store for me.

Just thinking about - nothing, I guess

I'm just thinking about nothing but need something to do while I'm just sitting here. I really need to head out to the country and try cutting grass, I NEED to cut grass in town but my mower does not work so I stuck waiting on my nephew to come fix it, I need to finish and upload a couple of items to TPT, but I just don't feel like it, I need to check through Ancestry.com and continue my search for my GG-Grandfather but I do that what seems to be EVERYDAY, I need to-, I need to - I need, on and on and on.

What I need to do is DO SOMETHING but I sit here trying to decide what I want or NEED to do while I can. I guess I will leave this blog for the time being and come back when I have made up my mind.

Went out to the country yesterday morning to cut the grass. I got most of it  done but plan on going back tomorrow or next day just to finish. It felt really good just to be out there with ehe birds, cool breeze, and just quietness. I love it but it was a long way out there. I finally left as it got hot.

Today it has been raining A LOT. I'm glad I cut the grass in the country yesterday and my nephew cut our grass in town yesterday because there is no way it could have been done today.

This OLD guy just wants....

This OLD guy just wants things to go back the way it used to be...or there about. All I want is to go back before my mini-stroke, to life with the use of my cane, to a time when I could just walk around the yard, climb a ladder, do yard work. But, I guess that is not happening.

There are things that I'm happy for NOW but there are more that I'm unhappy for now also. I mean I do still get around - sort of, I still get my typing done on my TPT project - sort of, I still sleep well each night - sort of, my Doctor visits have gone really well - glad of that. But then there are things that have not gone as well as they could/should/would have.

I tend to sit around a lot more than I used too - sort of, I still go to store often - sort of, I still drive - sort of, I still go over to my sister's -sort of, I still go out to the country to mow grass - sort of, I still day dream of the things I want to do - sort of, and I still eat - generally better than I used to.

I still go to church on a regular basis and would even IF my wife did not take me, still eat a lot more veggies than I used to but they are good for you, I eat way to much juke food but NOT that kind, just normal juke food- if their is such a thing as normal. I just want to do my normal - or what USED to be normal stuff.

I do tend to sleep very well at night - generally 8-9 hours each night. Which is good, I guess. I'm still on "school time - up early. go to bed early". I still 'think' about school EVERYDAY which is good and bad. I tend to work on school items even though I do not have a class anymore.

"So I'm just this OLD guy wants things to go back the way it used to be...."
