The morning went slow. I had lunch in the kitchen with the girls. I remembered my lunch today. 🙂 We were going to the hospital to see Grandma after work today. It has been a roller coaster ride with her.
After work today, I met up with Drew and we drove to AGH traffic was a little backed up since it was rush hour. When we arrived at the hospital, we took the elevator to the 6th floor. When we walked into her room, Drew’s mom and Aunt Paula were in the room. A nurse was tending to her. We noticed that my mother-in-law and Aunt Paula had gloves and a smock on. We asked if we need to be suited up, and the nurse said, “No we rolled out pneumonia, but she does have MRSA.” We entered the room and kissed her cheek. She was so happy to see us. We both gave Aunt Paula and mom a hug. It was nice to be there together.
Drew pulled over a chair and took a seat. I held Grandma’s hand for a moment. Then Drew showed her pictures from our trip. Emotions were lifted and happy. We are trying to stay positive. She beat pneumonia before and a staph infection. My mom calls her the energizer bunny.
Eventually, my mother-in-law and Aunt Paula left, and Grandma fell asleep. We stayed until about 7pm, and then said our goodbyes to Grandma and left the hospital. On the way home, we picked up some fried chicken for dinner at the grocery store. I don’t know why, but every once in a while I crave it. Then, we went home. Well on our way home, Drew realized that he forgot his house key on the coffee table in our living room. He gave it to me the other day to let me in when he went to the store.
We had to meet his dad at the mall parking lot to get the spare key we gave him. I was so annoyed. I was hungry and ready to go home! When we got home, I said please put the key on your key ring. He laughed and did so. I heated up dinner and platted it for us. We ate and then I got a shower and planned to relax the rest of the night.
Well, we were laying there watching Smallville. I have him into the show. I am so glad. It is such a good show and I love Tom Welling, especially as Superman.
After one of the episodes, I checked my phone and turned on the camera app to check on the dogs. The dog sitter asked my mom if she could take the dogs with her back to her house. My mom said, “no.” She said, she will be gone for like 3 1/2 hours to do laundry. My mom said That is okay just leave the dining room light on and give Louie and Paris a calming pill (melatonin) before you leave, they should be okay until you get back. While I was watching the camera, Louie was howling and crying in the dining room. The light wasn’t on in the dining room, only the kitchen light. I said, this woman is stupid. I know she didn’t give them melatonin or else he wouldn’t be this upset.
When I talked to my mom, eventually I got her to agree to fire the dog sitter that night. I said, “She is not following directions, she isn’t being kind to the dogs, and not giving them any love and attention. She is not a good fit for this job.” My parents kind of agreed. I said, “have her leave her key on the kitchen counter when she leaves for work and I will take over starting tomorrow evening.” My parents were so happy and would rather watch the dogs, than anyone. The girl they have during the day is awesome with them, but she won’t stay the night. She is scared. My mom said she is only 19. I said, at 19 I was begging my mom and dad to go so I could stay the night at my house by myself.
After I got off the phone with my mom, I picked up a bag to go to my parents. Drew made my salads for me for the next couple days. I was so happy and so thankful for him. I got the car packed up and then it was time for bed. I was going to have a nonstop couple of days.
