My Comedy of Errors

Hey Everyone! I am finally HOME!!  I feel so bad that I have not posted much the last two weeks:( I thought that I would share some of what my crazy last two weeks has been.  The Friday before Thanksgiving I made an 8 hour drive to attend a conference in Salt Lake City which started that evening and continued most of the day on Saturday. The conference was wonderful and inspiring!!! While doing some shopping after the conference it started to snow a lot. We were supposed to leave Sunday morning but decided to delay so that we could let the mountain pass  that we had to drive thru melt a bit and give the snow plows time to go thru. That proved to be a good decision and we made it thru with only some weather issues but we ended up getting caught in another storm about three and a half hours away from home.  We made it about one more hour and then had to stop.  Good thing we knew people in that town and had a place to stay! Then began the task of finding a babysitter to take my kids for Monday until we got home.  Three hours later I had a babysitter.  The rest of Monday and on Tuesday I was busy unpacking and repacking, getting my family packed and getting the accounting caught up for my Husbands office. Then early in the morning on Wednesday we were off to Robyn's House!!!!! A long day of driving and we were finally there! We had a wonderful time at Robyn's! The kids played, had a very nice Thanksgiving, got some mad shopping done (yeah Black friday!!!) 98% of my Christmas shopping got done and it all got wrapped!!! We were planing on leaving Sunday after church but then we had a little hitch in out plans. Early in the morning on Sunday my husband got up from bed to help our daughter to the bathroom while there he passed out into the tub.  I will spare all of the details but Robyn's husband ended up taking him to the ER for me. Turns out he was having a full body reaction to a medication he was taking and it cause him to swell up, have a rash and pass out. He got some IV fluids and meds at the hospital  and then they sent him home. We all thought that it would be best for us not to head home that day and to let my husband rest and let the meds  kick in.  We drove home yesterday and had only about 10 miles of a snow storm that we would have been fully in on Sunday night and it would have been really icy. So our medical detour is a blessing in a way! My husband is feeling much better today! I am working on a project for church today and getting Laundry :(done but I have a few pictures that I will post for you a little later. (probably tomorrow)

Lisa J said...

Karlee it is so scary when things like this happen and I am truly grateful for you and your family that he is ok!
Glad you had a blast at Robyn's, not only was it a blessing that he had this episode but the other blessing was that if it had to happen at least you had Robyn to help you through it. Its always better to have a bestie around when times like that are goin on!
Welcome home!

Hi Karlee!

Sounds like you and your family had an adventure that none of you will soon forget. I am happy that your husband is doing much better. I have a friend that always says, "Everything happens for a reason." Good thing that this happened at Robyn's house and that she was able to help out and they it didn't happen on the road or else where. Glad to know that in the end, you all had a great time and everyone is now safe and sound at home. I truly hope you and your family have a happy and uneventful holiday season! God bless and post them pictures! Hugs, Patty

I'm so glad your husband is OK and feeling better. My DH always says those types of things happen to prevent you from being somewhere else. Sure enough, because of that, you were able to avoid the snow storm and icy roads :)))))

Kimberli said...

Busy couple of weeks, bet you're ready for time at home to relax!! Glad you made it home safely and your husband is feeling better!

jamme said...

Sounds super busy. Lots of traveling but lots of fun in between. Glad to hear that your husband is doing better. That must have been so scary for you both. The good thing is that you are all alright and home and things can get back to normal again.

Jessica said...

Oh my gosh, Karlee! I have an alergy to penecillin that sound sort of like his reaction. It almost killed me the first time. I have several alergies like that, the least symptoms is itching like fire. The worst is going into shock. So tell him to be very careful what he takes. I'm glad it wasn't any worse than it was.
Take care and thank heaven's you're home.
Hugs Jessica

Hey Karlee, So glad your husband is feeling better and you and your family are home safe. I live in Miami and my husband is always wanting to go to another state to see snow driving and I always tell him that we are not used to that weather. I am so scared not having experience in that snowy weather. would love to see pictures of you and Robyn's black friday adventure. I did see the video she shared. Can't get enough of you two together.

Dell said...

Goodness Karlee! You have been going non-stop and then your poor DH! I am so glad you were at a place where he could get help and you were able to wait until he was feeling better to leave.

You know my DH tells me that the Good Lord looks after the Foolish! You know, I so believe that the older I get.

Take care and don't worry about posting each day. Sometimes you have to take care of yourself and family first.

Debbie said...

glad he's okay.

TheScrapDiva said...

I am so glad to hear that your DH is feeling better. I am sure that was quite a scare.
