Today started early as most Sunday’s at home do. We had the grits and sausage casserole in the oven then our plans for the day changed with the ring of the phone. The assisted living called and said Aunt Jean needed to be seen by a doctor this morning because of chest congestion and cough. She had a little moist cough Wednesday when we were there visiting but nothing bad. Today she was much worse. So we waited for the casserole to complete the baking, took it to Helen’s and gave it to the angel to have for lunch and headed to the hospital. Fortunately, after her chest x-ray and blood work, the doctor said Jean did not have pneumonia, but did have a nasty case of bronchitis. They gave her a breathing treatment, antibiotic and prescriptions and we were able to take her back to assisted living. Praying she has a speedy recovery.
We missed lunch with the two other ladies but checked in on them a little after they had lunch and they both were doing fine. We did a little work around the house, some laundry and begin getting things ready for next week. Then Barry and Donna contacted us and said that our dear friends Jim and Heather, our former pastor and his wife, were on the mountain for their daughter’s gender reveal party and they invited the four of us to come by. So plans for the day changed again. It was so great to see Jim, Heather, and the rest of their family. We visited and caught up with each other as much as we could. The six of us were quite close when Jim and Heather lived on the mountain. We will always miss them. Oh, Haley and Mason are having a boy.
What is that saying? “We make plans and God laughs.” Not the day we had planned but it was a great day!
