Since we signed the contract to have a house built November, 2012 we moved in with my mom in January, right after the new year.
Around the middle of January my mom was admitted to the hospital with congested heart failure. The day she was due to be discharged she slipped in the shower while a CNA was outside the bathroom, breaking her hip. She had surgery that day replacing her hip. She stayed for a few days then was transferred to a skilled nursing facility for almost four weeks. During that time M moved out with J. I was hurt because they didn’t move out on their own, but with his mom.
D turned 12 in February.
In March we finally broke ground!
Easter was at Grandma’s and my mom’s. It was, as always wonderful. We have been blessed with a fantastic family!
In June D graduated from 6th grade, there was no ceremony, but he was very excited to start junior high. We went on vacation for a few days in Huntington Beach, we’ve never been before. I think we would go again, it was very different than the central coast. On the way home, we drove through Beverly Hills, the kids took pictures next to a Bugatti on Rodeo Drive.
Before I went back to work hubby took me out of town shopping at The Grove. The only movie star we saw was Mario Lopez, but he is there everyday filming a talk show. In July mom was admitted to SJCH again. 4th of July was at my moms with my family. Hubby bbq and we did fireworks in backyard. I was thankful to have them to come home to. hubby makes everything easier, just knowing he is there makes my heart melt with gratitude.
August came around and before I knew it, I was back to work, kids back to school.
My mom went back to the hospital for a short time, again for congestive heart failure.
September was our anniversary, hubby got us a beautiful suite in town, and we had a wonderful night.
October we finally got the keys to our house!
My mom was hospitalized again, this time for colitis. When she was discharged, she went to stay at a skilled nursing facility, she didn’t feel strong enough to go home alone. She remained there until she had difficulty breathing and was taken by ambulance and put on a ventilator. Her doctors then agreed that dialysis was a good option.
November my sisters and I started training for peritoneal dialysis to be administered at home. It was an eight day process. Towards the end of training, D broke his arm at school. Sigh…
C turned 14 in November. My mom was home for Thanksgiving, thanks to the dialysis.
December M turned 21, my mom had a bad cold and Christmas eve was spent at home, the family get together was postponed until New Years Day. So we made pizza and spent it with our boys.
I am SO ready for 2014! I pray for a Blessed year, I pray The Lord be with me and my family, and bless my family and friends.
