Show and Tell Friday

Pin It Now!

Welcome to Show and Tell Friday!  This week has been a tough week here in our home.  I had to rush my daughter to the hospital on Saturday evening with a severe asthma attack.  She has on-going problems with asthma and twice before we ended up in the ER but this time was different, it was more severe.  Usually they treat her with the breathing treatments in ER and she's released. This time she had to spend two nights and two days in the hospital!  She was released from the hospital on Monday evening and thankfully she's doing much better now.  Asthma is such a scary thing to go through! 
Then Tuesday I caught a cold! Probably from getting run down due to lack of sleep!
This morning (Thursday) I went to leave for work in the morning and saw a puddle of coolant under my car! 
Now I'm stressed with hospital bills and car repair bills. Not to mention all the problems I've been having with this apartment!  I'm trying my best not to stress!
There is always good to be found though...I love this time of year.  The leaves are finally starting to change color in my area of California.  The nights are cooler.  I just love the coziness of this time to of year!  We even had rain last week.  We need the rain so badly here!
Hopefully soon I'll have something new to share but for now I'm just feel like I'm trying to keep up with life.
My goal...Get through the difficulties but still appreciate the beauty of this time of year!

So sorry to hear about you having such a stressful week - my SIL was rushed in to the hospital last weekend - with inflamation around his heart due to a virus - so I know what your're going through ( except we don't end up with hospitable bills here in Montreal )
Hope your upcoming week is a lot easier on you.
Thanks so much for hosting in the midst of it all -
Much love from here to there

Cindy, I am so sorry to read about your very stressful week. I will pray for you and your daughter. My niece goes through the same difficulties with asthma. Yet, you are here hosting your beautiful Party. Superwoman even needed a break once in awhile. Take care of yourself or it may be more than a cold next time. The human body can only take so much! Thanks you for your dedication.
Wasn't the rain wonderful?

well thank God your daughter made it through her ordeal with her asthma.
That is enough to be thankful for ,
I understand about paying hospital bills it took me 2 years to pay off my first experience with having a $1000 deductible insurance and medicare when I was taken to ER with my back I was in severe pain so had to go to hospital.
So Cindy we all feel for you going through life such as it is, for single women
You take are and try not to get to stressed out.
I'm sure your daughter has some good medicine now to take in case of another attach
Glad you got some rain
Hopefully your will fine a beautiful apartment soon

I am so sorry you are having such a rough time. Seems like when it rains it pours, and you have had more than your share lately. I hope your daughter is better. Did you ever establish any connection between the rodent problem and her asthma? If so, sue the bastards!

Maelchen said...

Dear Cindy, you are incredible... You have so much on your mind, great burdens on your shoulder, but still have the strength to hold this wonderful party. Thank you so much! I hope that the next week will be better, to see a child sick is one of the most horrible experiences. I wish you all the best for your future! Bless you

Jen said...

I think moving to Canada is a great idea :-)
