Highlight Reel July 18th-24th, 2009 July 24, 2009

Saturday-  Zach and I went to town and spent some time roaming around downtown and checking out the crazy days sales and looking at the newly remodeled downtown area.  We picked up a pizza and a couple of movies and had a relaxing evening at home.

Sunday- started out beautiful and quickly changed.  Jeff, Zach and I headed to the beach in the morning and spent a few hours soaking up the rays and Zach did some swimming in the frigid water.  I waded in to my knees and then my body refused to go farther.  When we got home in the early afternoon I got a call from my dad that my parents had been in a car accident and they were transferring my mother to the St Cloud hospital.  Indescribable terror!  I picked my dad up at the Brainerd hospital and we headed to St Cloud.

Monday-  Spent a long day in the hospital waiting for neurosurgeons and orthopedic specialists to figure out what they were going to do.  There is such a helplessness that comes from waiting and not knowing what’s going on.  Their pain becomes your pain and there’s not a thing you can do.

Tuesday-  Mom is receiving such excellent care at the hospital.  It takes a really patient, caring person to be a nurse and she’s had some wonderful ones.  Surgery for her will be either Wednesday or Thursday.

Wednesday- Surgery today for mom.  Went better then expected.

Thursday-mom doing well.  In a lot of pain, but now starting on the road to recovery.  Janeen came over and snuck into my house and did my dishes and cleaned up a little for me as well as brought a cake for us.   She then followed us down to see mom.

Friday- After getting  up early to get supper in the crock pot for my family and dad I went to work today for a full day for the first time all week.  We have a big divisional meeting next Tuesday so everyone’s panicked getting ready for that.  After work I drove home, picked up Zach and we headed for St Cloud to visit mom.  They had her up sitting in a chair for a little bit today.  That completely wears her out.
