--->Darlene is home<--- . I have been told that the pain from Pancreatitis is the worse pain imaginable. Hopefully there won't be any more flare ups with this. I want to thank you all again for keeping Darlene in your thoughts and prayers. There is no doubt in my mind that those same prayers are what got her through this.
I am just going to whisper this so I won't be jinxing it, but I do believe that Spring is tiptoeing in. It was a beautiful day yesterday with temperatures in the 50s and sunshine. The only thing that messed it up was the wind was blowing and put a bit of a chill on everything. A check of the weather last night showed the temperatures in the 50s clear across the board for the following week. Most of those days do come with rain, but that's all part of spring. When J.D. came back from checking the mail yesterday he said that the Forsythia has buds on it. I am thinking it should be in bloom by the end of the week.
I had a doctor's appointment on Monday. I might add that I was glad to have an appointment already set up because my sinuses were doing a job on me. Most people will be complaining about all the rain that comes with this beautiful spring weather, but not me. I have pollen allergies that usually results in my sinuses becoming infected and if not caught in time and treated with an anti-biotic it progresses to bronchitis.
While I was sitting in the waiting room at the doctor's office, a couple came in with a little boy, which I would guess was right around 4 years old. The Dad and Mom didn't sit together. The little guy went straight to the water cooler when he came in and got a cup of water. Which he played with more than drank. He would sit the cup on the back of the plastic child's table in the play area and then get on the chair with his knees and lay forward with his hands behind his back and tip the cup enough to get a sip of water. I was mentally betting with myself how many times he could do that before the cup fell completely over and spilled out the water. His dad said something about he shouldn't be doing that because he will spill the water. He looked back at his Dad and actually clinched his teeth and said, "Then I will get more water." Not long after that, he went running up near his Mom and leaned up against the chair next to her. She suggested to him that he shouldn't be running in the waiting room. He looked at her, squinted his eyes and said through clinched teeth "Shut Up!" She repeated herself only to be told again by her little demon child "Shut Up!" This time when he told her to shut up it was a little more forceful, so she would get the message. Which she must have gotten it, because she did as he said and "Shut Up!" I couldn't help but wonder what is that little family going to be like in another 10-15 years when this child is a teenager.
Later that evening I heard on the news about a shooting in the Cleveland area where a young man shot and killed his father and shot his mother numerous times which she survived, but was in critical condition. Can you guess who I thought about when I heard this newscast?
One last thing before I close this post............. I was listening to the Chicago news yesterday afternoon and they told about a robbery involving a teenager as the criminal. It seems that this upstart robber decided to hold up a muffler shop. He wanted all of the money in the safe. The employees assured him that the only money they had access to was their personal money and what was in the cash register. They also told him that the only person that had the combination to the safe was the owner and he wasn't there at that time. The teenager then gives the muffler shop employees his phone numbers with instructions that they are to call him when the boss comes in. Needless to say, this kid was apprehended by the police and will never be accused of being another Einstein.
Have a blessed day.....
