My Mom is out of ICU now but she is still weak. I think she is antsy to get outta there soon. I don't think she will get out before the week is over. They wanted her to go to Phys. Therapy afterwards. So she will be busy trying to get better. The dr. told her she had to quit smoking. My mom smokes and for years has smoked heavily. I have to think that is why she had her heart attack. I don't know if she can quit. I hope so..........I know my niece is a pharmacist and she says there is a drug out that really helps people quit smoking. I can't remember the name of it off hand but it sounded like it really does work.
Here is a cute pix of my Son Aaron with my nephew Neil. We went out to eat at Grizzly's in Grand Forks and Neil is so funny. He thought it would be cool to get a pix of them sitting in this cow chair. LOL! Neil is so fun!
Sorry the quality of photos here.....taken with our camera phone. I don't think it takes great pixs but I had to get a pix of Aaron in front of this old gas tank at Grizzly's. So cute! My Sister, Charline, Lorie and Francine were up visiting mom in the hospital too. We ate out together in between visiting hours. My sister's Son Neil was with us too. He goes to UND(University of North Dakota)So he was already in town. He is taking some summer classes at the U. Aaron didn't get to see his Grandma. Only 12 and older are allowed in ICU. So we had to take turns visiting mom. As Aaron had to stay in the waiting room.
I want to give a shout out to my sis Franny. She doesn't get Internet but Still.....I wanted to thank her for letting us Hang out at her place in Grand Forks. It was a sudden visit, and very appreciated a FREE place to hang out hat while visiting mom in the hospital. Here is a pix of Aaron on Franny's couch. He's watching Videos on the laptop.
If the weekend wasn't crazy and hectic enough........My sister, Wanda was in town(They live in Indianapolis) moving her Daughter in town(Mpls/St. Paul). Her Daughter Paula got a job working as Pharmacist here in Minneapolis. So they were here moving her into her new swanky apartment. We took this pix near Lake Calhoun. Looks like such a pretty day huh? It was getting close to evening actually in the pix but before we went to see my sister.....we got a heck of a bad storm in town. You would never know it from these pixs. Coon Rapids, and Hugo got Tornadoes. The one in Hugo was really bad. A F3 and it killed a cute little two year old boy. It so sad!!! We were down in our basement but only got hail and wind and rain.
Just add that to the wonderful weekend we've had.......LOL! I thank God things could be worse and were thankful mom is ok, and everyone is oK. That's all one can hope for!!!
Me, Aaron and Wanda near Lake Calhoun.
