Mom went back to the doctor yesterday & they couldn't find anything wrong. She went back to work today. She still isn't 100%, but she seems to be doing better. Dad is having a CAT scan on Monday to find out why he is having so much pain.

Today was rough, Grandma had a major meltdown. She got upset because she though she had upset Mom. At one point she said "Why don't I just die, I'm old enough to die." As her granddaughter I don't want to hear that. I know she is frustrated because she can't drive and feels trapped at the house. I try to take her out as much as possible. The big weekly meeting is going to Wal-Mart. Thank goodness for the dogs, they keep her spirits up most of the time.

Still working on my Microsoft Office Specialist training for the exam. It is a bit more of a challenge that I thought it would be.

Sorry today was another dump/vent day. Hopefully things will get better here soon.

Have a good day!!!

I'm glad your mom is able to go back to work. I had such a frustrating experience with ER today with my eldest child. It's hard to be 2 hours away and not be able to be there for her. At least the hospital is now investigating the doctor and nurse who took care of her. Who sends a patient home after a Toradol shot an hour early doesn't even begin to touch her pain and when the doctor examined her, she came off the table when he palpated her abdomen. Grrrr....

Hopefully the further testing will give the doctors an idea how to help your dad. You take care of yourself and try to get some relaxation this weekend. I totally understand about your grandma. My dad was that way with saying he should die. It's hard. Hugs.

Hope you have a relatively peaceful and low key weekend. I'll be thinking of you.
