Family and Funnies: Random Tuesday Thoughts

My apologies for being a bit scarce the last week or so – last Wednesday or Thursday my sister had a hemorrhagic stroke. She’s currently at a Neuro Critical Care Unit with a drain on her brain to reduce the swelling and remove the excess blood. She’s been making a little progress each day, so we’re hopeful that while she has a long road of recovery ahead of her, that she’ll stick around for quite a while longer. Stubbornness runs in our , so in this case that could be a good thing.

You really get a wake-up call when it’s a sibling, because of the closeness in age vs. a parent or grandparent. I suspect it’s even harder for my brother, because he’s her twin. She’ll apparently be at the NCCU for at least a week, possibly two, before she’ll be moved to a rehab facility for further PT and recovery. 

We’re hoping that she’ll do well in Physical Therapy so that she’ll be able to join in our joint birthday celebration at my mom’s house on December 8th. (My birthday is the 9th, theirs is the 12th). She’s currently unable to use her right side, but does answer questions correctly (how many fingers, what color is that shirt, names of the people in the room, etc.) so the doc is very hopeful for a decent recovery. Please keep her in your prayers – she can use all the help she can get.

Let’s move on to the , shall we? Speaking of the brain… This is hilarious:

About StacyUncorked

After 20+ years in the Corporate World and years of infertility, Stacy was surprised when Princess Nagger made her miraculous appearance - deciding to forgo the career and stay home was a no-brainer. As if her hands weren't full enough, 8 years later she and her husband added Little Dude through adoption, adding a whole new dimension (of crazy) to their family and even more sleepless nights. When she’s not refereeing kids, dogs and cats, she loves to write, hence the reason she decided to start her little blog, and because she never got a baby book to mark milestones, this was the next best thing. She also enjoys doing reviews and giveaways for products she or her family would willingly use and can stand behind. She loves to cook and try new techniques to turn ordinary into extraordinary. Crafty by nature, she takes on a lot of unique projects and enjoy seeing the end result. Her favorite, of course, is making her award winning wine out of fruits and grapes. Experiments with water currently underway.

  1. Your sister is in my prayers for a full recovery, and that you can spring her loose for the party even if she’s not completely ready to be out of the rehab hospital by then.

    Your funnies had me howling, and the dog is now crying and leaping to get up here, i think she wants to see what’s so funny!
