Oh What A Day...Already...

Today is my baby sister's 12th birthday. Two of my aunts have been planning on coming in town for months to celebrate. We were going to just have a weekend packed with shopping and lounging by the pool!

3 days ago my grandmother(mom's mom) fell and broke BOTH of the bones in her lower leg. She's been in the hospital ever since because she has to have surgery. She also has really bad diabetes and a touch of dementia. Time spent in the hospital messes with her and she is mean and disoriented.

She's 84 years old and has had high blood pressure since being admitted. They put her through a stress test yesterday to see if she could handle the surgery. Early this morning they decided to go ahead with surgery and things are being set in place to get her in sometime before lunch.

My 17 year old brother woke up with a fever for the second day in a row. My sister(the 12 year old) woke up with an ear ache. So now my mom is taking both of them to the doctor. My aunts may end up staying at my house or at the hospital with my grandma.

I'm stuck here for now because I'm making my sister's cake. I didn't have everything I needed and had to make hubby go pick up the extra stuff while I got ready. Hopefully it will be cooled off soon and we can go see my grandma before she goes into surgery.

LOL, its 10:00 and I'm already exhausted! Pin It!

Goodness! I hope the surgery goes well, the fever goes away, and her earache eases soon. That's a lot to handle! Hang in there.

Happy Birthday to your sister - I was just sitting here thinking that was quite the age difference, but then I realized that when my step-daughter is 23 my own daughter will be turning 10. Hope it all goes well!

Wow. What a way to start the day.
Hope things get better.

I have a blog award for you on my blog.

I will keep you and your family in my prayers. It sounds like your Grandma suffered a tibia/fibula fracture. She'll need to stay in the hospital for close to a week post operatively (to make sure she's healing correctly and her high blood pressure and diabetes are in check) and then to have rehab.

Oh my goodness, what a lot on your plate! I hope the surgery goes well and every one recovers!
