I'm backkkkkk.................






Home again, Home again, Jiggidy jig LOL

OMG I am so wiped out... its a good tired... it was a great week... Kieffer holeshot one of his moto's and was in first place for all five laps... [with a guy on his ass the whole time] I cried after it was over... Taking first at a National is huge...

HOWEVER... that is NOT my biggest news of all!

You guys are NEVER going to believe this... you better sit down... LOL

I get a call from Kameron last week... "Mom are you sitting down?"
"Uh Oh... what Kameron"
"No its good news" I was thinking.. Candice must be having twins... but no...
"Mom, Manny came over today... he is alive..."
"WHAT?" "Ya the VA sent him to a nursing home for 2 months, he has been trying to get a hold of you but he only had our home number at the other house" [Which I disconnected a month ago]

so much for those weird signs... I'll prefer to think of them as Manny trying to call me... LOL

So yesterday as I was typing this Manny came over... I guess he had a bad reaction to his chemo and it almost killed him... He was in ICU for weeks... [GD VA Hospital for not telling me where he was... Sheesh]
He worked pretty hard to get out of there... [he would stay at his rehabilitation session a couple of hours more than he had to!] Anyway... finally he was released on March 19... and then he came over here...

Then you will never believe what happened... he drove into town to get some food... and some idiot tried to pass another car... he had to drive into the desert to avoid him! He is all bruised up from the accident! The guy just kept driving... his tire was flat.... so he had to jack it up and change his tire afterwards...

Survives the hospital, and then almost gets killed in a car accident! Then has to change his own tire in the desert at 83... Is he a tough old bird or what? I think it rattled him pretty good... because he asked if he could go to town with me next time I go... so I am taking him today...

Manny said he would put our names on the list for the VA emergency contact... and keep a copy of our numbers in his wallet...

It sure is nice to get a second chance with someone you care about...

Stories and pictures of Texas to follow next entry... Ok I'll give ya a few right now... LOL
