Just as I was thinking about putting our turkey in the oven Thursday morning, I got a frantic phone call from my mom saying she had called 911 for my dad. The paramedics took him to the ER and we followed behind, waiting for xrays, etc. to tell us what had made him pass out and lose quite a bit of blood.
Nothing really prepares you for seeing your dad on a gurney being taken out of his home.
After three hours of cleaning up the mess at their house, going back to the hospital and having dinner at 7 pm instead of 2...we were all pretty exhausted.
They kept him in the ICU until they could figure out what was going on. Thankfully he is now home and doing okay.
We stayed here before about two years ago and I just love it.
The ceiling of the tea room.
Midway is where Dan's family settled from Switzerland and they have a lot of streets named after them here.
Anything Lacy, Martha or Burgi is us!
It's just over the hill from us but feels like a real getaway to me.
Us trying to take a picture...um...I was cracking up.
Don't look at my hair - did I mention my hairdresser fired me?
I'm postponing and looking for a new one, which I really dislike doing by the way.
I found my dream home down the street from the resort. You can see the listing and amount here.
Cough, cough, cough.
We tried some new places to eat at. Tarahumara for a yummy Mexican dinner with huge salsa bar. Dan was in heaven. We tried this fun place for breakfast.
How could you not stop here?
How could you not take a picture of your husband wearing an ice cream cone hat?
Fun things to look at everywhere! I was so distracted I could've ordered chopped liver and not have known it.
Monkeys were swinging from the ceiling it was that great!
There was even a horse and buggy getting coffee in the drive thru! So exciting!! Out of the ordinary anyhow.
A man who thinks invests in Finks!
(My maiden name you know....)
Isn't this fun?
The breakfast was simple, like our stay, but it was a much needed night to relax after such a crazy Thanksgiving Day.
How was your turkey day? Anything upside down like ours?
I am grateful for people like nurses, doctors, EMT's, etc. who work on holidays.
Thank you for taking care of my dad.
