We’ve been back home in Indiana for two weeks today but have yet to venture out to visit friends or do any extracurricular activities. For one thing, the weather hasn’t been too cooperative. Mainly though, it’s because our youngest daughter and to a lesser extent, our middle granddaughter, isn’t letting us get out of their field of vision for too long at a stretch. I believe they’ve missed us. So our days have been filled with family visits, last minute baby preparations and a couple of doctor appointments.
My uncle Lloyd was in town the past four days. He regularly makes a stop at my mothers’ when he’s doing his annual pilgrimage between wintering in Florida to his Summer residence in Northern Michigan. Mom looks forward to his stay as they have always been close. We spent time enjoying his company whether it was just sitting and chatting at ma’s, playing cards, or having the entire Indiana gang meet at Olive Garden for a family get-together. It’s always good to see him.
My father and stepmom were also planning to drive down from Michigan. They were scheduled to camp in the site next to us. Papa (my father) has anxiously been anticipating the birth of his fifth great grandchild, the reason for his coming. Unfortunately, the evening before their departure he mistakenly took my stepmom’s medications. When he realized his error, he took his own on top of hers. The combination of the heart and blood pressure pills caused his BP to plummet and the upper chamber of his heart to fibrillate. He ended up spending his travel day in the hospital. Although his BP is almost back to normal, he continues to be monitored and is unable to make the trip south anytime soon. We are hoping he will be able to join us in June. We’d like to celebrate his 80th birthday here in the park with family.
On a parting note, today is Bobbi’s due date. She has an ultra sound scheduled for this afternoon. We are waiting to hear from her on that. Our soon to be born granddaughter doesn’t appear to be in any hurry to make her debut. Until next time……..
Here’s lookin’ at you kid………….
