We have the two little ones today. It is hard to get anything done. I never had two at a time. When one went to school I had another. My little ones grew up in my shop making wrecks of my sewing supplies. Or they were on my back while I was teaching. Or running the gym or theater. They just went with me. Now with two under two it is constant.
We were able to determine that mom had a stroke. It was very scary for me. When I realized what was happening I called 911 and then went and got 2 baby aspirin. I ground those to a powder and forced them into her mouth. She could or was not responding. When she did try to talk it was very hard to understand. She could not use her arms and both eyes were wide open and unable to close them. Her one leg was very weak yesterday. She was also turning very blue. I swear her hands her as blue as denim, and her feet and her nose were blue. She was breathing and I could do nothing until the Emt's arrived. She was starting to pink up a little and as they ran her tests all were within normal range. As she has a DNR on record and she was recovering the decision was made to keep her at home.
Mom however is telling my sister's I made this up and no one came. When we ask about her leg she says she doesn't know and it is nothing. Lil sis called the ambulance service for a report to be faxed, but still she does not believe it. She has also developed a very bad cold. I called a doctor and described her symptoms and he said it was a stroke. She refuses to take blood thinners. This is just a new part of my life. My father had a stroke and recovered only to drown 2 months later. There was very little water in his lungs indicating that he had another major stroke. Not a very good future for me if both biologics die from strokes.
I went to the studio last night for 2.5 hours to help choreograph a Pirate scene. It was fun and the kids love the number. Several times I had to remind them that this was hard work and to quit having so much fun. NO FUN , knock it off! I yelled constantly but it did no good they just kept having fun the little buggers. The scene is really comical with a mix of Broadway and Irish dance.
Mom is finally up and she is upstairs with Sis. She seems to be happier and moving better today.
If you look at the side bar you will notice that my Home/sewer loan total went down by $1000.00. I do believe I may more than make my goals this month. I feel so blessed. It is only the 4th and I have almost the whole month to keep working on this balance.
Have a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negative.
