Growing up in Burrwood

Now that I have a minute

I thought I would surprise you all and write a blog.
We had a little scare yesterday. This time it was Bill instead of William. He was outside and Devan happen to  look out the window, turned around and yelled, “Grandpa fell down, he’s laying on the ground!” Deanna and I ran out side just as he was getting up and she helped him back inside. He said all of a sudden he felt dizzy and light headed and the next thing he knew he woke up on the ground. We took his blood sugar but that was fine, 120. I took him to the ER and they ran all kinds of tests. You know the usual, ekg, cat scan, blood and urine etc. but found nothing wrong. He hasn’t been sick or anything either so we have no idea why he did that. At one time in the hospital his blood pressure when up to 180/77 but then it went back to where it should be. I don’t know if it dropped all of a sudden when he was outside that caused that or what but it’s a mystery. He did cut his head when he fell and got a couple of staples put in but nothing else was hurt from the fall. What he liked the most at the hospital was that every nurse that came in couldn’t believe that he is 70 years old. I bet he was told that at least 5 times yesterday lol. Of course he ate that right up. Anyway, nothing showed up on any of the tests and he seems fine today. I just hope it never happens again, I/we don’t need a scare like that ever again.
Brody keeps me pretty busy. He’s such a 2 year old lol. Terrible two’s is a perfect description for him. One day he got a hold of a black marker somehow and wrote all over my kitchen wall. Thank God I was able to get it off as it wasn’t one of those erasable kind. Since our oldest son is out of town we also have his dog here and neither one of them likes the other sitting on my lap. Snuff is a Chihuahua and a needy dog. He follows me around constantly and if I’m sitting down he’s on my lap. If I go in another room he’s right behind me. Brody and him both have to be on my lap so that makes it hard to be on the computer lol.
William seems to be doing well on the meds the doctor gave him and has had no problems since. When his dad gets home, which will be today sometime, he’ll get in touch with the doctors in Madison and decide what to do. I think William would prefer to stay on the medication and he is 18 so that makes it his decision so we’ll see. I just want him to be okay and not have anymore problems for many many many years. Thank you all for keeping him in your prayers. I can’t tell you how much that means to me!
I’m sure I have more to tell you but nothing else comes to mind right now. When something happens I think “I need to blog about that” but then I get distracted or busy and the chance is gone. The kids are gone right now so I’m taking the opportunity to do some catching up and let you know a little of what’s going on around here.
I hope you all are (NOT) behaving yourselves and hope the new year started off good for you. It’s time for me to start dinner so I better feed the animals here before they start growling but after I’ll be around to see as many of you as I can before I get distracted again. Supper should be ready by the time they get back so they can eat and I can visit lol. See ya soon!

  5. Even though it turned out to be not so serious, it appears that Grandpa Bill had a guardian angel looking out for him – Devan!! I for one, am glad that Bill is ok. For the record Sherry, go easy on the poort guy, let him get some sleep at night! It’s also good to hear that William is doing well too. Here’s hoping that he continues to, too! Brody is a boy… and boys will be boys! All in all, it seems like things are still a little chaotic with you, but you are enjoying every minute of it!
