Wow. Did life get a bit crazy for a day or two. For you to get the whole story I have to back up to Friday. Which started out normal. Mom had her Buddy and they spent some time making things for Thanksgiving snacks. Old Fashioned Chex mix was one of the things they made. It was okay but not the same as the bagged kind.
When Mom’s buddy took his Quiet time everything changed. He woke up crying saying his ear hurt. His Mom was to far away to get him to the Doctor so Mom had to take him in. It turns out he had an ear infection.
While Mom was taking care of her Buddy, I got a call from my Dad’s Sister. I didn’t understand it at first. Something about my Dad’s Dad being found “taking a nap” by the side of the road in his front yard. So Mom went from picking up her Buddy’s Medication to going to check on Dad’s Dad.
I don’t know what she said or what happened but she then called and told me that her Buddy’s Mom would be by to get me and bring me to the emergency room. When we all got there Mom sent her Buddy with his Mom who then took me to the house to pick up all of my Dad’s Dad’s Medications. Then we headed back to the ER
In the meantime I called and got Dad headed home. My Aunt didn’t show up until we were waiting on the results of all the tests they took. There was blood tests, heart tests, x-rays, a head scan and urine tests. All of which came back okay. The only thing they found wrong with him is that his blood pressure was very low and so was his Oxygen Level.
They came to the conclusion that he may have taken his medication more then he should have. That isn’t good. Mom spent time trying to get my Dad and Aunt to understand how bad this issue could be. While my Dad’s Dad spent his time trying to get everyone to agree that it wasn’t an issue at all.
In the end it made for a long day. Then I had to get up early to make it to my finals. I won second in one round and second in the average. That got me another belt buckle too. The only issue was that there were so many people that came to the rope that it took until after 9pm. Then with the two hour drive home it was late when we got home.
When we got home we found that Mom had to spend the whole day With my Dad’s Dad as he wanted to go for a drive to the casino. Which is over 30 minutes away and he didn’t remember the issue he had the day before. Dad’s Uncle even came to try and talk to him about it but all he did was get mean about it. So Mom stayed with him and in the end Mom didn’t get anything she needed to get done, done.
When she got home she started her sewing and cooking only to have my Dad’s Dad show up for dinner and stop her work again. After he left about 7pm Mom finally got to her work. She worked until Midnight and got her sewing kind of caught up but not much cooking got done.
The next morning (Sunday) Dad and I went hunting before I headed to my next roping. I didn’t do any good at the roping but it is what it is. The only issue with it is that once again we were gone all day and we didn’t get home until late … AGAIN.
It isn’t like we planned on it being late. It is just that more people showed up to rope at all the roping then normal. However, with us away from the house, Mom had time to get something caught up. There is now snacks and Thanksgiving food getting baked. By the time Dad and I got home Mom had a casserole in the oven and lots of treats made.
Today Dad and I started the day with some hunting where Dad got a young buck. After we got it checked in and to the processor we came home to find more Goodies that Mom had made.
If one thing is going to go right it is that Mom is going to make sure we have a ton of food and goodies for Thanksgiving. This afternoon, I am going to go get my Indian ID Card so that people will stop giving my a hard time about not having a Driver’s license.
This evening when I get home Dad said him and I can go hunting again. The plan is to get to bed a bit earlier for the first time since Thursday!!!
