A birthday to forget?

April 7th, 2012 § 0 comments

My birthday was Wednesday… which became an interesting night. As I write this, I am sitting in my sister’s living room.

Wednesday night was my birthday, about 10pm I noticed something on my brother’s Facebook wall. My nephew Nikolai was flown from Long Prairie Hospital to the Saint Cloud Hospital. From there he was assessed and then flown to Minneapolis Children’s Hospital. Apparently he had a heart attack, seizure and then brain hemorrhage. Scary thought. Today, he is still in the hospital.

My sister has a daughter named Lily who has not been feeling well either. She was taken into the Saint Cloud Hospital this morning as she was acting lethargic. Today, on the day that my sister planned my birthday gathering my niece was diagnosed with Type 1 Juvenile Diabetes and they are not really able to stabilize her blood sugar level.

As I sit here, thinking about how not fun all this is as you can’t focus so much on worrying, I sit here with my sister’s boys trying to make the best out of it. Life is short and with two of my siblings kids in the hospital, all you can do is pray. I can tell that Alex and Christopher do not understand what is going on, and they shouldn’t. They are not old enough to worry.

Let’s try to make the best of the day… the Jello shots and jalapeno cupcakes are awesome!
