The Snowman's Been Dropping the Snowball Here Lately
Sorry about the lack of posts but unfortunately some other stuff has been going on not to mention that March has been as boring as sitting and watching a turtle run the 100 yard dash ;) Warning - Personal Stuff Below!
My Moms been in and out of the hospital a couple times since the beginning of December with her last visit at Crouse ending this Monday. She's a tough cookie though and pulls through every time and seems to be on her way to a full recovery from pneumonia once again. Of course seeing how I live with her I was lucky enough to catch it myself. The finger pointing hasn't started yet as to which one of us gave it to the other yet though :) I'll have to figure out how my two sisters manage to avoid getting sick because they are always around helping out big time.
A big Thanks and Kudos to the doctors and nurses at Crouse hospital. Both of her visits started in the emergency room with them working on her and actually treating her within minutes of arriving. Both times she ended up in intensive care and the Dr's and nurses were very caring and did their job in an outstanding manner not to mention friendly.
As for the nurses and staff on the 6th Floor North not enough can be said about how happy my mother was and our family was with them both visits. They always had answers for us and if they didn't they would get them. I think what my mother liked and us was that they were always uppity in spirits along with a smile to go with it. Thanks to the Crouse staff for what you do and do well ;) Thanks!!!
Another reason for the lack of posts was my oldest son just moved about a trillion miles away in hopes of starting a Career. OK, maybe not quite a trillion miles but it sure seems like it's that far. He is in New Mexico training to be a Boarder Patrolman. He graduated last year with a degree in criminology and kind of had his mind set on being a police officer. Both of the civil service tests he took he passed but most likely not a high enough grade to get a call. That said he decided to give the Border Patrol test a shot and of course he had to go and almost ace that one. I wish I could say I was cheering him on for that test but, but, but.....
So right now as I type he is in New Mexico probably being yelled at as he does some physical training along with a ton of book work learning laws and so on. I was hoping he would end up working with the Manlius Police Dept which would keep him close to home :( Now all I can do is support him, which I do and accept the fact that he will be living across the country if he passes the training for boarder patrol. At least we get to talk every night or two. So far he is liking it other than being so far away from everyone. I know he'll do good and will be fine. It's Dad who will be struggling for awhile ;)
The main reason for the lack of posts is there is NO SNOW! Ummm, that could change in the next day or so but at this point who really cares? The teaser days have already hit us and now the long drag out period begins. You all know the drag out period. We'll get a 65 degree day only to be followed by a 30 degree day ;) The good news is we made it through another winter and we all know what is right around the corner.
I could talk B-Ball but I am not going to do or say anything that could possibly jinx my favorite sports team so I'll leave it at that. Have Super Weekend All!
