What's been up with Nina?

Hi everyone,

Sorry to not log in in a while. Whole lot of changes going on here.
Got a new job working full time after being part time for many years
while the kidos were growing up. My mom was scheduled for total
knee replacement surgery on Oct. 30th. That was postponed due to
a stress test that the doctor ordered that came back with abnormal
results. So on Friday Nov 2, we took her to the hospital for a potential
stent to be placed in the heart because they thought their was a
blockage. Low and behold the doctor's were incorrect and the test was
false. (20% error rate) No blockage, maybe 30% occluded. Nothing to
worry about at this point. Mom is home resting for now, but this will
mean she will be able to continue on with the total knee replacement
surgery. (Get her back on the surgery schedule).
In the mean time today we are moving her into a new apartment.
The one she has now means she has to climb stairs (6).
Now she will be on ground level, much easier.
Only problem is her family is getting really tired. We need a break.

Again thanks for not forgeting me, and I will be coming back slowly
but surely.

One of the things I learned in life a few years ago is the principal of honoring your elders. My mother in law was dying of pulmonary fibrosis, we allowed her to finish out her days living in our dining room. You'd be amazed at how God makes things work out.

You take good care of your mom. It'll be OK. You'll see.

That is sure a lot to handle all at once; sounds like you're in need of a little rest Nina, and this is just the place. Good friends and lots of booze thanks to getting ahold of Rimmer's AMEX card. So pull up a camp chair and what's your pleasure?
