My daughter-in-law had a very rough Labor Day weekend. Tuesday morning she went to her doctor’s office, he said she had to check into the hospital immediately and would have surgery that day. She had an infection and areas that needed repair from the C-section. Recovery has been a slow journey. And can you imagine, just giving birth to a beautiful baby boy only to be separated from him? But, she did get to see him every day by way of her mom taking vacation days.
She was told she might get to go home Friday, but when Friday came the doctor said no because the hospital couldn’t get something she needed to take home that would help with recovery. It hadn't been ordered. She would have to stay in the hospital all weekend. Our hearts sank. Then an Angel (from the hospital) Friday afternoon hurried paperwork through to the medical supply place and by Saturday evening my D-I-L went home. My son and his family are together again. Woo Who!
It has been a very sad and stressful week. But, she is home and (we all hope) on the mend.
I've needed new chairs in my dining room for a couple of years. Even though I glued and re-glued the old chairs (more than once) they continued to be rickety and frankly scary to sit in. They fell apart constantly and if not they creaked and groaned to make you think they would fall apart.
You know how long it takes me to decide on anything new....
But, a few weeks ago I ordered six new chairs from Overstock.com. The gray/creamy green chair had super great reviews. Two weeks ago they arrived. With all that has been going on, I had to put them together when I found the time.
I wasn't even sure I could do it, but I did--do it.
They are prettier than the photos. Trust me. They are sturdy chairs and I intend to rate them--five stars. That's how pleased I am.
So that's it for Monday. I am exhausted mentally and emotionally, but very glad to have last week behind us. Again, thank you all for your thoughts and prayers.
