prayers please

Sorry I have been MIA. No stitching happening this week. I don't think I will be able to pick up a needle til Monday. Cleaning and doing all the laundry. Work has picked up so we have been busy. I had my WW wi in today and I have lost a total of 5.2 lbs, woohoo!

My MIL went in the hospital a couple of days ago and is very sick. She was sick over the weekend and then got weak and couldn't hardly walk. My SILs took her to the doctors and he sent her to the hospital. She was dehydrated and her potassium level is way low. She can't walk and her speach is a little slurry. So they ran blood tests and did a cat scan. She didn't have a stroke but they have a found a small black spot on the cat scan. She also has an UTI. They will not send her home til her potassium level is better and she can walk.

Also this weekend is when we move Dylan to Pennsylvania. We leave early Saturday morning and will get there early afternoon. Supposed to rain so we got a tarp for the truck. He will be sharing an apartment with 2 other boys , that he graduated with and are going to the same school. Universal Technical Institute. He will be learning auto mechanics, Diesel and Ford. It is an 18 month program. He gets Christmas week off but no spring break or summer break. When he is done with this program then he plans on furthering his career and taking a program for porsches. I have been real calm about all of this til this afternoon and it finally hit me lol.

So DH and I will be spending Saturday night there and coming home on Sunday. Then returning Wednesday around noon as Dylan has registration and I have to pay a few things on that. Thursday morning is orientation and I want to be there for that. I also looked and there are a lot of cross stitch stores in the areas of where we will be traveling. I won't hit any on this trip but you know I will on other trips when we visit him.

Justin started his Junior year at SUNY(State University NY) Brockport and likes his professors. he has full days Monday, Wed, and Fri and no classes on Tuesday and Thursday. He likes his new job at Starbucks/Target.

Oh well I am sure you are all snoozing now so I will go :-)
