It’s Beginning To LookA Lot Like Chris…Chris..Chris
So here’s the scoop..after a tiring week by all, as all weeks should be, in anticipation of a smashing weekend full of festivity and shopping I made my way back to Kitchener on Friday…early on Friday arriving at oneish. Lunch with my best friends sis and sis in law, chatting the afternoon away then out to Kelsey’s for fish and chips dinner. I categorically do not like fish and chips but theirs is wonderful.
Home post dinner for a short restful evening, a good nights sleep then a day of shopping, visiting, topped off by our annual brothers and sisters Christmas dinner.
Suddenly at 9pm I felt the need to call dear old auntie Fran to set up lunch with her. After many rings a clearly incoherent elderly woman answers. I abandon my glass of Pinot Grigio, sis drops her glass of rum and coke and we race off to aunties.
I have keys to her apartment but alas they are in Hamilton. Someone lets us in this secure building and we head off to the 10th floor sis bruising knuckles knocking, place a call to sis number three to come over with her keys and I race down to the super’s apartment to let us in.
On entry find auntie barely conscious, dial 911, try to keep her awake. We figure it is probably hypoglycemia, but she has been ill so follow emergency’s instructions not to give her anything to drink.
Ambulance arrives and the next hour and a half spent trying to get her blood sugar up which finally happens almost to an astounding normal of 4.4 and parameds leave. She seems better, others must go and I also tired I could lay on the floor to sleep. We get in the elevator to leave but I have to return, she has been I’ll after all.
Long long long night and good thing I stayed. She has trouble with her cough and breathing so I get her ventolin from kitchen. Breathing easier but still restless.
Finally at 6:50am she falls asleep. By 9 I let her know I have to go sleep. Family will be here shortly to do Christmas baking. Sis is at work til 3 but I am supposed to go visit sis in law at noon.
Have left a note for the bakers that I am sleeping but not to worry about noise. Will try to get a couple of hours..have set alarm. Sis left her cell at home so cannot let her know updates.
Am soooooo tired but not sure I can sleep. I expect that one drink at dinner party tonight will render me..well…will see.
That’s it for now. Hope y’all have a wonderful day.
