My husband is going to visit her tonight. She's thankfully only 45 minutes away. She ended up fracturing the ball on the hip socket, and had a partial hip replacement last night. Actually, I'm amazed they did surgery, as she is in her 80's. She seemed so frail last weekend when I saw her at the wedding, that I didn't think they would do a surgery. I am pleased that they considered her strong enough to do one. She will be released on Monday to another facility for rehab. If she bounces back from this, I don't think she'll be able to move back home. She fell outside of her house, and luckily a neighbor found her. Honestly, I still don't think this is going to end well. It seems like falls are just a catalyst for the body to start shutting down, or something has already started shutting down which causes the fall. At least by him seeing what I went through last year, he has a more realistic outlook on what may happen.
I know that my aunt and grandma's passings were blessings for all. They were both in poor health, and been in nursing homes for years. My Grandma was 93, had dementia setting in, and hadn't been able to see for years due to macular degeneration. Her quality of life was just not there. My aunt's was harder for me, since she was only 2 years older than my Dad, but her body was failing due to uncontrollable diabetes and liver failure. I was a mess for both, partially because I was involved in the majority of the funeral planning. At least my husband will be spared from that, since his Dad's family is very large, and with my Grandma and Aunt, it was just my parents, brother, and myself.
Okay... enough of that! I don't need to get myself crying. I did enough of that last night courtesy of Grey's Anatomy. That show makes me cry ever single week!!
Crazy weekend again. In-laws are visiting Grandma tonight as well, and then coming here to stay. Tomorrow we go to the cities for my nephew's baptism. I need to bake and the cake for it and make a triple batch of coleslaw as well. Want to get to a few stores too while up there. We need to hit up Penzey's and use our coupons that we just got in the mail, and there is a yarn shop right next door... I have a yarn addiction! I need to get some nice navy wool for my husband because he wants a new winter hat. Also need to get some wool wash there. And I just like to go in and squish all the pretty yarns!
Food will be up in the air most of the weekend. Last night I made a buffalo chicken chili. Really liked it too, and will be making it again once and a while to change things up! Scale is still staying happy. I'm back to the excited to stand on the scale state of mind, instead of dreading it. Still waiting to see a new low, but feeling like it won't be long. Having groceries delivered today since I don't want to shop with both kids.
After they come, then I will need to get to baking.
I will let you know what I end up buying fitness related for the Wii. I was looking at Zumba, but the Wii reviews aren't as good as other systems. Sounds like it might be too sensitive? Really, I just need to get back to running on a regular basis.
Eating beachy since February 2010.
