Um, yeah, so you may have noticed that this week’s wrap-up was extremely late. Sorry about that. I started to set up the linky last night and post the wrap-up with a note that I’d be back to update my own wrap-up later, but I convinced myself that I would have time to do it today. You can see how that went.
It’s been a crazy-busy week. Monday was a much needed Mom’s Night Out with some of the ladies from my homeschool group. We went to one of my favorite delis with the world’s best salad bar. Yum! The company was, of course, really nice, too. I always enjoy getting together with other homeschool moms for support and encouragement.
Tuesday was going along smoothly when I got a call that my dad had run over his foot with a lawn-mower. The injury itself was pretty bad, but was compounded by the fact that he’s on an anticoagulant, so any bleeding injury can be really dangerous for him. We spent several hours in the hospital Tuesday night as he underwent surgery to repair the damage. The surgeon was unsure that circulation was going to return to three of the toes and infection was a great risk.
After much prayer, as of tonight (Friday), circulation has returned to all the toes and there has been no sign of infection. Dad is supposed to go home from the hospital tomorrow. We are very thankful and much appreciative of all the prayers, including those of the surgeon who prayed with the family before the surgery. If I ever need a foot doctor, he’s my guy. I was extremely impressed with him.
Wednesday, we spent the day swimming at a friend’s house. The kids always enjoyed that…except the sunburn part. Despite multiple reapplications of sunscreen, my fair-skinned, blue-eyed kids always seem to burn their first time out.
Thursday was spent trying to catch the laundry up, but a storm knocked out our power for a couple of hours, so I didn’t make much headway there. I did get the grocery list done by candlelight, though.
Friday, the kids and I went out to lunch, then, did a little shopping for Father’s Day and got the grocery shopping done. After Brian got home, we went to visit my dad in the hospital in an effort to try to keep him from going stir-crazy.
I can’t imagine just sitting there all day for three days when he’s fully conscious and able to do something besides sit in a bed all day. I told him, if it were me, Brian would have to get me Internet service through our cell phone carrier so that I could at least be online during the day.
That’s our week, in a nutshell. How was yours? Sorry the linky was so late this week, but now you can post about your week and sign up with the linky. If this is your first time to join us, be sure to read the Weekly Wrap-Up guidelines.
