Week-end Wrap-up…with Eric update…

One day gray and rainy, the next day green and shiny…that’s how the last week has gone.  Just in time to water my beans and peas, down came torrential rains.  The grass was nearly a foot tall when Casey got out there to mow today.  I won’t complain, though…I love Green…

I’m going to wait until I return from NYC to plant the vegetables…  I fly out of EVV this trip, leaving this Thursday and just in time for Grandparents’ Day Celebrations at the EE’s school on Friday.  I love being fete’d… Of course, that Saturday is the Derby and Sunday is Mother’s Day, so it should be non-stop festivities.   The girls have that Monday off, so we can sneak away to a museum or the park or Shake Shack…

In case you haven’t heard, my son-in-law was hospitalized on Friday with sepsis.  He was nearly in shock…that’s serious, folks.  We were just rejoicing that his chemo was finished—all 17 rounds!  he made it!—but his immune system hasn’t even begun to recover.  Luckily, they got him to the hospital in time.

Here’s Melissa’s latest update:  5/1/16 5pm EST:

          Update, so y’all are in-the-know: things are decidedly less dire than they were on Friday. He’s still on the antibiotic drip for SEPSIS, but all his labs are trending back in the right direction. Although the patient would prefer to come home and convalesce surrounded by his girls, he’ll likely be in hospital a few more days. Unfortunately, they’re also concerned that he may have shingles, so he’s been mildly quarantined until the lab results come back tomorrow. *big sigh* …. Thank you all for your love, prayers, messages, and warm wishes; it makes a world of difference, and we’re grateful for all of you. xx

So there will be more celebrating to do when I get to the Big Apple, though I may have to drink for two if Eric’s still under-the-weather…   I’ll do my best, as you know.

Everything else has just been the gettin-ready stuff…I can hardly wait to get there…

    Glad to hear your son-in-law’s situation isn’t dire. My first husband had shingles when he had radiation for lung cancer. We’ll hope your SIL has the mildest of mild cases. Good travels!
