My very long blog break was very much unintended. Part of it was just lack of motivation.
But more recently it was because of a trip to Canada and Colorado.
My husband has two sisters and a brother in the Toronto area that he had not seen in many years so we spent 4 days of quality time with them.
We then flew off to Denver where we explored for a couple of days.
And finally, the whole purpose for our trip. was driving to Alamosa to attend our eldest son's college graduation.
We were only able to spend a few days with him as he was in the process of moving, but I'm happy that we were able to be there, even if it was a very quick trip.
This past Sunday, we drove back to Denver and stayed overnight. Our very long journey back to Kuwait started on Monday, consisted of three flights and a nearly 12 hour layover in London. But things never go smoothly when flying and on top of that, I received a message from my brother that my mom had fallen and broken her hip.
Since we were already in transit, there wasn't much I could do except try to get a connection each time we landed so I could find out what was going on. We arrived back in Kuwait early Wednesday morning.
On Tuesday, my mom had a partial hip replacement and this coming Monday she's being transferred to a VA Hospital where she will receive rehabilitation. The problem is she has major arthritis in her knees which was what contributed to her fall in the first place. (Her knees are the reason she wouldn't fly to Denver to meet us so she could attend the graduation.)
I'm hoping she'll have a speedy recovery, but if I feel like she needs more assistance, then I may need to go back to spend time with her.
So, that's where we're at for the moment.
Just wanted to say a quick hello!
I'll share more of our trip in the coming days.
