Craziness and Cheetos

I just noticed it has been a month since I last posted. My secretary is very tardy. Things have been especially crazy. My dad's brother was hang gliding and had a very bad landing. After crashing, putting his hang glider up and driving back into town, he went to the hospital. He had broken his elbow into pieces and they had to cut off part of one of the bones in his right arm and put him back together again. The doctors couldn't believe that he had actually put up his glider and driven himself back into town without passing out (he did say he had to pull over a couple of times to keep from passing out). He is in physical therapy and still has a long recovery altho he is driving now. In fact, he is driving up to ABQ (3 hrs from his home in the southern part of the state) because my Gma is in the hospital. Her pace-maker isn't working properly. I guess it only works for part of her heart. Dad is with her at the hospital now.

Mom had another round of chemo last Friday and didn't do really well this past week. She hurt so bad on Saturday that she couldn't stand to have her massage. Mostly the massage lady just did a lite touch on her so she wouldn't cry. She has been going to bed really early every night. Mom didn't get to find out about her physical therapy today because Gma went into the hospital. She had to change it to next week. It's getting so I can't keep up with all the sickies here.

I made a break for it yesterday. Dad went out the front door and forgot about me. I was out the door and across the front yard before he had time to realize what had happened. I didn't run very far tho and when dad got to me, he made me sit and then put the leash on me. He didn't yell at me or anything. I thought we were going to the bark park cause I had my leash on and we went by the car but he just said- "No Charlie- no bark park tonight". Mom was proud that I came back when they called me. She said that the bark park helped with that.

Lastly- Cheetos. Has anyone else had cheetos? They are wonderful! They are crunchy cheesy tasting things. I don't know what they are made of (except cheese but maybe not real cheese) but they sure are good. Mom gives them to me cause she likes to watch me crunch them. I don't care as long as I get to eat them.

Sorry there are no pics and the post is so short.

C-K-C, it's so good to hear from you. That sounds liks a really nasty landing that your uncle had. we hope everyone gets healthy soon so you can get back to the bark park but you have to have your priorities. Take good care of your mom and give her some kisses from us.

Peanut said...

Oh we hope your grandma and uncle are okay soon. And of course we hope your mom is getting better. Glad you didn't run away. Cheetos are yummy. My boy gives them to me when he has some.

Hey C-K-C,
So sorry grammie isn't doing well. Hope they can fix her pacemaker quickly. Your uncle is very lucky that he wasn't hurt worse than he was. We hope his elbow will heal right for him.
You better give your Mama some more kissies to help her feel better again. She needs to feel better so she can get her massages. Mama bets those feel really good. We haven't tried cheetos before but they sure sound yummy. Take care of everyone ok??
Luv & Wirey Hugs!
