Sometimes life just gets in the way of blogging. When you get sooooo wrapped up in living, and you think “hey that would make a good post’, but you never get around to posting it. That’s where I am right now. Work is slow but we just had a major property inspection , so I was busting my butt getting our area ready for that.

On top of that, my Mom’s health is not doing that well. She has COPD, which is a chronic lung disorder, so she has been in and out of the hospital for a few years. Lately though, she seemed to be doing well, until this last episode, in which she went into Cardiac arrest twice. She is doing much better now, she is back at home after spending I believe it was 2 weeks in the hospital. It may have been less but it felt like forever.  It’s tough when you are over 3,000 miles away when something like this happens. Luckily I was kept well informed by family what was going on.

Other than that not too much has been going on here in the South Pacific. Been reading alot, hanging out with Patrick and Lola and our neighbors, C and B. We actually had a nice relaxing 4th of July BBQ at the complex. Simple stuff Burgers, Hot dogs, Potato and Macaroni salads and my first ever made from scratch (except for the crust) Apple Pie with Vanilla Ice cream and caramel sauce. We ended the night with a small but fun fireworks display, but were done by about 9.

Patrick will be having what we hope, is his last Dr visit before surgery on the 15th. On that day he will , hopefully, be given a date for the surgery so we can move out of the never ending Workman’s Comp cycle. We shall see.
