I have had a very busy and hectic week so far. I'm glad that it's Thursday night and the week is almost done.
Monday I spent the entire day at the hospital with my cousin. She hadn't been feeling well and scheduled an appointment with her primary care physician who in turn contacted a cardioligist who scheduled a nuclear stress test that didn't come out the way everyone had hoped. As a result, the cardioligist scheduled a heart cath and my cousin requested my presence since I have experienced this myself. This cousin is the daughter of my beloved most recently departed aunt. How could I tell her "No"? The heart cath didn't go well either. They had to transport her via ambulance to a larger Heart Center to have a stent placed in an artery that had a 90% blockage in it. She begged me not to leave her, so I went to the Heart Center with her. The results of the stent placement were excellent. She came through with flying colors and seems to think that my being there made all the difference in the world! I keep telling her that the knowledge of the Doctors with the guidance of GOD are what made the difference, nothing I did or didn't do. She agrees with that assessment, but still thinks somehow I made a difference.......I have given up trying to convince her otherwise.
Wednesday, Thursday and Friday are filled with watching Drew for M & G. He is a delightful little boy with an infectious smile and a laugh loaded into a body that is perpetually in motion! He can make me tired just watching him move. However, I find it necessary to get on the floor and play with him. Even though it physically exhausts me I find the interaction with him well worth it. I wish everyone could hear him laugh....it starts somewhere in his toes and works its way up and out and I can't help laughing too when I hear it! Since both my parents passed away before they ever saw any of their grandchildren I feel so fortunate to not only have lived to see fourteen of them so far but also that I am in good enough health to still be able to get on the floor and play with them.
I am a very lucky woman!
