Hello, friends. I wanted to check into the blog and let you know why I've been absent for the past week and a half. My parents and grandmother came to visit last Friday. The entire trip down my grandmother, Sadie, was sick - throwing up and stomach pains. Well this carried on through Friday night and into Saturday morning - so we decided she needed to go to the hospital. Turns out, we were right. She had a large bowel obstruction and needed surgery.
It was a waiting game, but she finally had the surgery Monday night. She'd been in the surgical ICU the past couple of days and is now on the floor in a regular room. She was feeling better, but last night began hurting and throwing up again. We are praying this will pass - your prayers are always welcome. We hope she gets well and gets out of the hospital this weekend or, at least, early next week. Luckily, she was admitted and had her surgery in the hospital I work - so I am able to pop in and visit and check up on her any time during the day. I also know many of the nurses, doctors, and others who have been working with her. This has been a blessing.
Needless to say, I've had little time to blog or think about blogging. I hope you understand - I've definitely missed posting as well as reading other blogs. I hope to be back in the game soon! Maybe even a a post tomorrow! See y'all soon!
