On Saturday Jason, Jonnie and I went to Denver to see the grandma. The car ride was rough, but I was able to keep my feet up on the dash for as much of it as I wanted to, so that made it better. We made sure to have the car seat and our hospital bag with us, as well as the location of the nearest Catholic Health Initiatives hospital, just in case; but, alas, we didn't need those precautions. The grandma is not doing very well, health wise, and is now in a hospital bed and on hospice. She and Bob have decided to stop much of her medication, aside from blood thinners (which is good, because that'll help keep down those TIAs and keep more blood clots from forming) and a couple other things for comfort. She's pretty much lost all use of the left side, and wears out easily on the right. :( Bob is taking good care of her and the hospice nurses and long-term care givers are really helping out! We would appreciate any prayers that could be spared for her during this time.
After visiting for a while, I told Jason I was starving...but he made me walk a mile around a mall first! :-O OK, OK, he just forgot by the time we got to the mall, and I said we should wander first. Then we went for a yummy lunch at Mimi's Cafe. We found various other things to do in town and then went to Our Lady of Fatima for Confession. :) Then we headed home, through Colorado Springs and Pueblo. Jason and Jonnie got ice cream while I snacked on hot wings! Yummy!!! I was able to not be too tempted at Cold Stone because I had my wings with me...but if we'd gone to Cold Stone first...well, I just don't know! ;-)
We stopped at WalMart in La Junta and Jason got another guitar for our Band Hero/Guitar Hero game on the Wii and now we're ready to totally jam! :) Well, he is...I'm not so good, but I think while he's at work I'll practice so I can beat him! ;-) While playing last night, the kumquat was kicking the guitar away, so it was hard to tell if he/she is a critic of my musical abilities (highly likely) or that he/she was really getting into it!
Still pregnant and still waiting...I'm getting huger by the day, and we're hoping for anytime now!
