Dr. Mary Gordon to the left & myselfHi, this is my cardiologist, and lately I've had a few problems and I believe I owe my readers a few explanations, and I'm going to try and make them short & sweet.  Last week I had a bad reaction to some new meds, but long story short this wonderful lady got me on the right track & I'm doing fine now as far as that's concerned.

Right after my appointment we had lunch in North Aurora & I met up with "Glitterbabe" (Steph & good friend), and NightOwlMama (my daughter), and we had lunch at Harners. We had a great time I must say. Steph gave me some of her wonderful, gorgeous cards (by the way they're all used up already they are to to precious), and I gave her some art stuff for her cards & my daughter got a free lunch & will have to wait for Christmas (I'm such a mean mommy).  There was a great time to be had I must say.  Tricia never met Steph, but they hit it off well.  

Now my days are a little mixed up, but I believe that's when my dark cloud rolled in.  I lost my close cousin Dom, and then a few days ago I lost my brother's wife Linda, my sister-in-law.  Sunday was the wake & Monday was the funeral.  So I would like to apologize here and now to all my readers/followers for Monday's Music Moves Me for not being present today, but the Funeral wasn't the only reason.  Saturday I had an accident.  I slipped & fell on my stairs while I was sweeping a bit of snow. I slipped cracked my head on the stairs & yelled for Dave.  He was in the house in the study, which is on the other side of the house & couldn't hear me.  I cracked my head so hard I saw stars & my head & butt was really hurting & I was sitting on a very wet stair & driveway.  I yelled & nothing.  My dog was out with me & I tried to tell the dog to go get Daddy, but I only frustrated her more.  I couldn't move from the waist down & I did finally reach the broom I had & started banging on the railing & still nothing.  I yelled, and I cried & still no Dave.  Finally about 20 minutes later a little girl about 12 was walking her dog & my dog barked at hers & caught her attention to me on the ground.  She yelled are you alright?  No, could you come over and ring my door bell & get my husband?  She did & he came out & tried to pick me up and when he put his arms under my arms & back & tried to lift I heard another crack & I whispered in his ear 911.  He ran inside (he was only wearing a robe & I thanked the little girl. & said she could go.  I was freezing & asked for a blanket & Dave came out after putting clothes on & the ambulance was there. They got me on a gurney & in the ambulance.  I guess I was so cold my veins collapsed & they couldn't get a IV INTO ME.  

Anyway, shorten the story some here I'm alright.  I woke up with a New Years Eve hangover & coconut bump to the head, but nothing broke except my pride.  I did make it to my SIL wake with the help of a walker, some drugs & my husband not to mention my eldest son by my side the whole time, but didn't make the funeral due to all the dam drugs I'm on.  So, I will visit my 4M followers/friends from yesterday soon.  I will not let you down, but a big thank you goes out to Denise DMT for covering for me if she got my message and the rest of my co-elves for holding down the fort.  Lorie, Callie & Stacy!  Love you guys!  and MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!  HUGZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ

Oh my dear, what a mess! I am so grateful you are essentially ok except for a bruise or two.

The Creator does send us angels for sure!

I am truly sorry for your losses. THis has been such a hard time for so many. It seems everywhere I turn people have lost loved ones (including me).

I wish you peace, good health and a bit of Christmas joy.

More Than Words said...

Oh my poor thing!!! Sounds like it all happened so fast!! I'm glad you ended up being okay, and that girl was there when you needed her!!!

I'm sooooo sorry I've been absent from my blog too!! I am fine..I have just been soooo busy w/ "life" in general! Now that we're on Christmas break, I want to try to catch up with blogging!! :)

Yikes, life has really biten off a bit much for you! WOW, double losses in a famiy in a matter of days. Oh, how my heart aches for you! I did notice yesterday where you made mention of your SIL passing, but I didn't know about your cousin dying, too. That's so tough, I know how it is to loss someone close to you.

Heaven's sake a live Marie, I'm so HAPPY you're okay after that nasty fall. God had His angels watching over you, and He sent a little one to help you when you couldn't alert Dave.

My prayers are for healing to your heart in your recent precious losses of your SIL & cousin, and for your body which took a good banging. Also, please extend my condolenses to your family and let them know I'm praying for them, as well.

Think not on the sorrow of those you love who have gone on, but find reason to celebrate the life they shared with you. When my brother died in 2006 all I wanted to do was talk about him and to remember every little detail that I could. This was so good for me. I found the grieving process was easier on me as whole with this mind set instead of getting down in the dumps.

Thanks for the explanation of why you weren't around yesterday, but truly it's okay. We're all friends here and friends love unconditionally. God bless you!

I'm so sorry for all your loss lately, Marie. I am glad that you have good people and family there with you. I'm so glad that you didn't do worse damage trying to get help.

I hope your children will be there, and the grand babies. We have all seen how close you are to your family.
I'm glad you're ok.

Have a blessed and safe holiday.

A scary story, but I'm glad that everything turned out for the good and that you're all right.

I knew that as soon as I opened your Christmas card that it was one of Stef's - it was beautiful!
What a great photo of you, her and Tricia.
I was so glad that I heard from Dave & Tricia about what happened and knew that you were ok, I was SO worried about you.
You know you have my love & hugs always. =)

I'm glad you are okay too. I would love snow, but I can see how it can be a big pain in the butt (and head). LOL!

No worries here about blogging. . .

Merry Christmas!!
