Sidetracked

I've been quite sidetracked from blogging lately. 
My parents who are serving an LDS mission in Argentina had their apartment robbed just over a week ago.  Everything was gone, their two Apple Laptops, jewelry - two pieces were quite sentimental, even my mother's curling irons and Dad's razor and shaving cream.
Everything is fine, they were not there at the time - thank goodness!  It was at least 30 or so hours from when I got an email notice regarding the robbery to when I was able to communicate with my parents.  Needless to say, I was sick to my stomach for a few days.  I'm glad I'm already on ant-anxiety meds and have sleeping pills or I may have come totally undone!!
Yesterday I had Carpel Tunnel Correction Surgery on my right wrist, yes, I am right handed.
My sweet little Urban who will be 4 in a couple of months has been so attentive.  He'll come in from playing outdoors every 1/2 hour or so to pat my head and see if I'm feeling better.  He offers me my pain meds every time too, to which I have to remind him that I have to wait a few hours in between. We are also in the works of boxing items for a huge garage sale before we move and take to the road.  So, postings may  continue to be sporadic here, but I am reading all of your blogs daily! Since I'm limited to typing with my unfamiliar left hand, I may not be leaving too many comments, but I do love checking in on all you creative friends!

Oh Mel, how un-fair, as your family does so much for others to have this happen. So happy they are safe, it is just items. As for your wrist, nothing will work better than love from a little one. You take care and we will be here when you are ready. Would you like to drop out of the rainbow swap, I do not want you to feel any pressure. Whatever you decide is fine. One of your dear friends or I will step in for you, just let me know. xoox

Lurline said...

Not fair, Mel! So sorry to hear about your upsets - wish I could help!
Hugs - Lurline♥

Hi Mel,
Still catching up on email since our trip, sorry it's taken me so long to get back to you. Sorry to hear about your parent's home and while they are doing such wonderful things for others. Like you had said, thankfully they weren't home. Hope you're feeling better after your surgery...don't do too much, so you'll have plenty of healing time.
Take care of yourself,
~Karen~

Everything seems to happen at once. Hope your parents are ok, and that your wrist heals without any complications. And the packing goes well. You really need a good cup of tea - I mean Diet Coke (as I recall). You'll be ok. I'm thinking of you! Urban is a sweet boy.
