In My Heart I Need Some Dull
This is something I really am craving. Why?
What’s happened now, you may wonder?
Our son-in-law has been having some health issues. Not minor ones by any means. In this family-minor just is too mundane.
Anyway, he went in for a heart ultrasound on Tuesday. His leg had been bothering him and he didn’t
want to believe it was anything more than a pulled muscle.
NEVER, EVER let things like this get a pass. He had some
issues and had been warned about side effects and things to look for-but just

to the ICU.
It’s Halloween and I’ve bought candy, but honestly-I have no
idea if we get to either take the boys out or pass out the treats to the
I guess it’s a good thing I’ve learned to give up control
and learn to “go with the flow” of whatever life seems to throw at this family.
November 1: Still no idea what's going to happen next.
We’re upside down once again. PLEASE, PLEASE I do believe in prayer and
good vibes-send some here.
Nothing is going to stop me from praying for Alex and some
very dull and boring times ahead.
