Welcome home!

Just pulled in this afternoon from our Florida vacation. We spent a long weekend in Sarasota at Lido Beach with friends, and then drove over to Orlando to stay with my in-laws for a week in their timeshare. We did three days at Walt Disney World (Magic Kingdom, Epcot and Hollywood Studios). In short, we’re wiped out.

Plus, I got a message from my sister that my mom ended up in the hospital early Wednesday morning. Severe abdominal pain and bleeding. Taken by ambulance. She’s okay now; her bladder was blocked by a blood clot, apparently, resulting in the pain. Once they put in the catheter, she felt much better. But today (Sunday) was the first day that she hasn’t bled. I talked to the urologist from Hollywood Studios (how surreal!), and he’s planning to scope the bladder sometime tomorrow. So tonight I’m off to Mom’s place to pack her a bag, get her glasses, and take them over to her.

Oh, and we’ve come home to a house without air conditioning. Great!
