I am on cloud nine!! Yesterday, I became a grandmother for the first time!
On June 19, 2019, my first granddaughter was born around 7:25 a.m. She weighed 8 pounds and 5 ounces and she was 19 inches long. She is absolutely beautiful and perfect. Her parents are still working on her name so you will have to stay tuned.
This week has been a whirlwind and it is only Thursday. I am not really sure where to start. I guess I should start on Sunday.
My Stepfather with Lewy Body Dementia
On Sunday, Father’s Day, I went to see my step-father that has Lewy Body Dementia. I am his primary caregiver. A few weeks ago he had to be transitioned into skilled nursing from a memory unit. When I first moved him, I was afraid he was not going to live much longer. However, he rallied and seemed so strong and good on Sunday when I visited with him.
On Monday, I got a call from the nurse at the skilled nursing home and she told me they had a problem with him the night before. She said he had been combative and hit someone along with breaking through a door. This was not the usual behavior for him.
Long story short, he had to get a psych evaluation which means he was admitted to the hospital and placed on a geriatric psych floor. This had happened a couple of years ago and he almost died there. So I knew this was not a good thing.
I am still working on getting him released from the psych unit to a different skilled nursing care. It is not very quick or easy.
My Friend That Inspires Me
Also, on Monday, I had planned for my friend Cathy to come to town to ride with her to pick up her new puppy. I had gotten my new puppy and Kingston from the same breeder a couple of weeks ago. So on Tuesday, we drove to pick up her new puppy.
I was so happy to get to spend time with Cathy. She is one of my dearest friends and really inspired me to start this blog. You can read about it here. Keep following along because I will be releasing my podcast soon and she is my first guest.
And then the biggest day of all was Wednesday when my granddaughter came!! So I spent the day running back and forth between hospitals seeing my sweet new granddaughter and my stepfather.
You can just imagine all of the emotions I have had in a short amount of time.
I also started another round of FASTer Way to Fat Loss. What a wonderful group of women! I am so thankful for this community.
