I have been so busy this week. My ex-FIL collapsed in his apartment on Monday. His neighbor called the Fire department and was planning on kicking his door down and they told him not to. When they got there, they had to break a window to get in. He had passed out face first. Earlier in the day he had been complaining that his head hurt and one side of his body had been hurting along with his chest. My son ran over there (we live pretty close together), he was really worried about him. They took him to the hospital and has been in ICU since Monday. He had a mild heart attack and had an infection around the pace maker that they put in about a month ago. To top that off every time he gets up, his blood pressure falls (they still don't know why) Every time they get him up to walk, he can't. We still don't know what is causing his blood pressure to go down. 

My son is close to him and he didn't think he was going to be able to sleep that night, so I called for an update to see what was going on so he would feel better. I know when something isn't right with him, I guess that's mother's intuition.

I had to get my car fixed this week, school was out yesterday, I feel like I've been on a roller coaster all week long. 

But on a good note, my daughter finds out that she's been chosen by Biscuitville to be in the Christmas Parade in a couple of weeks. She's excited and nervous if that makes any sense at all. I'm curious to what she'll have to wear though.

I'm sorry! I'll be saying a prayer for your FIL.

Congrats to your DD!
