i do promise to get out and make the rounds - i always enjoy reading your blogs and keeping up with y'all* but just haven't spent much time on the internet over the past few days - just putting up posts because it keeps my hands busy. i just can't really read right now. i am really tired and am kind of walking around in a daze but i know that the worst is over. i hope. PTL.
i got a little more sleep this morning - almost feel human and almost feel like the panic-time is over. we had some lunch together and went out on our backdeck - it was a beautiful day so we sat together in the sun for a few mins. the swelling in his face is going down - now he looks like he has an apple in his cheek and that side of his face is sagging. his elbow is going down as well - but it is bruised from his wrist right up to almost his shoulder. PracticalP - i have not forgot your advice!
we were outside only a few minutes when our friend Sara showed up. i have kept the driveway chain-locked since this happened as i just knew that everyone and their dog would keep stopping by and i wanted jambaloney to sleep. but Sara parked her car at the bottom of the driveway (130ft with a steep incline) and walked up. but she has been receiving calls from everyone in the community for the past few days, she has apparently stopped by the last two days and banged on the door with no answer. she, and everyone, were very concerned that maybe i took him back to the hospital or whatnot. they have all been on pins and needles. i turned the phone off when we got home from the hospital and didn't turn it back on until Sara left. tons of msgs from very worried people. Sara said that she would make all of the calls to let everyone know that he is ok. i just can't deal with that right now as it will just start me crying again and i have to stop crying.
Sara said that everyone is worried that we will leave. she also said that most people wish they had have taken the sucker-punch and not jambaloney - he is a very wonderful, sweet, handsome man and they all love him - he will put up siding or he will pass out sandwiches at Senior's day. it's why i love him so much! Sara said that everyone is really worried about us and want to bring us ready-made food, and go do grocery shopping or bill paying but we can handle all of that stuff. Sara said that our matriarch wishes she took the sucker-punch....and to be honest, this woman is 84, has been through hell, was raised in North Korea, eats rocks - i kinda' wish she had have taken the sucker-punch too - bahahahahah! no, i don't mean that but this woman is STRONG! and me and jambaloney try to suck her brain dry as she is a walking encyclopedia of all of the things that we need to know.
i'm kind of blathering. it's just that i am up and don't really know what to do with myself. i have read all of your comments on the other posts and my heart is swelling. which is making me cry and i really need to stop crying as i am losing my voice - bahahahah!
thank you all so much. it is a weird thing to come and sit at a computer and feel soothed. and that is what y'all* have done. thank you for being here. because i had locked the chain on our driveway no one was able to drive up. and if you saw how long and steep it was, you would think twice about walking up it, too! so although people have been concerned and wanted to show us support - it was our internet friends that provided the support for the past few days.
and i really thank you all from the bottom of my heart. we'll be back to normal soon. and be out visiting with y'all*. just give us a few more days k?
*y'all - a word that i stole from my friend MDR. and y'all already know that. but i am big on proper citation and footnotes, etc. - bahahahahah!
no really, thank you for providing me with this place to vent and feel supported. i can't thank y'all enough. but i can say that anyone of you is welcome to come visit - we only charge $10 a night for vandura. but for you folks - it's free!
