Fun and Not-so-fun Weekend

Today, Sweetie Pie officially turned 11 years old. The older kids had baked a couple of batches of cupcakes for her to take to school to share with her classmates.

We celebrated her birthday on Saturday with the family. Then, one of her friends stay for a sleepover.

My parents, sister and brother-in-law also came out along with their baby, James. I can't believe that he is already 6 months old. Time sure flies!

My DS and BIL are so blessed to have such a wonderful and good-natured baby. We enjoyed visiting with them all.

Gotta love that toothless smile!

Everyone had fun that day; unfortunately, the next day was not-so-fun.

My parents are elderly and my mom has a long history of health problems. One of those health problems is being a diabetic. Her blood sugar count skyrocketed that night and had to be hospitalized.

She was in the ER all day yesterday. They were able to bring her blood sugar level down but not down to a normal level. As it turned out, the prescribed medications she's been taking are way off for her. The medicines aren't working correctly and would raised her blood sugar level extremely high everytime she ate. She will require to stay in the hospital for a few more days so they can reassess her medications.

Mom is doing much better today. She hasn't been taking those medicines for the last 2 days, and already she is feeling like a different person. I will be taking my dad to visit her again tomorrow. Don't know when I will be able to post next time... so count this as a bloggy break.
