...... My Momil (mom in law), had a stroke on Sunday. I know how scared for her I was, I cannot fathom how she felt. She has maintained a positive outlook. She thinks of this as a minor inconvience, I argue with her about that one from time to time. She's already regained strength in her left leg, and is working hard in rehab to get it back in her arm as well. She likes to freak me out by standing up. I go into, "Nervous she's going to fall" mode, and hover around her until she is back on the bed. She always tells me to relax, but I can't. I think she secretly likes to freak me out, which is fine as long it doesn't make her mad and she doesn't fall. She told the doc she feels more cheerful since the stroke, we agreed with that. An unexpected side effect, the mind is a wonderful thing.
Our family resorts to jokes and laughter to get through tough times. Some may find that odd, but it works for all of us. I cannot imagine doing it any other way. Seeing this family rally around each other makes me realize how lucky I am to be a part of it. No matter how much they gag at me and make puking sounds upon reading this, I love you. Momil, I am cheering for you, each and every day.
On a lighter note, today is my oldest son's Senior Prom. Their theme is "An Elegant Affair" or was it " A Black Tie Affair", do I get points deducted for not knowing? I hope not. The tux has been picked up, I am assured it looks sharp. I cannot wait to see for myself. The oldest even got his hair cut for the occasion, WOOT! Today we gotta pick up Kacey's corsage. Then we well pile into the family truckster and invade Kacey's parents house to get heaps of photos of them before they leave :) FUN FUN FUN!!! I will post some pics soon!!
