Part One

The last few days have been on the crazy side. Where do I start?

Last week I spent much of it trying to get over this weird sickness I had that I wrote about in the previous post. Don’t catch it you guys. It horrible. I wouldn’t wish it on anyone..well maybe those few that frantically tried running away from me screaming, “I can’t get sick!” In that case I hope you get it with full a vengeance. I’m so evil. Lol.

Anyways, my mom texted Monique and I letting us know that my grandma had suffered from a stroke and sent us pictures of my grandma looking helpless in the hospital. It wasn’t that much later that my cousin Connie group Google plus us about her condition. She suffered from a stem stroke. We were all worried. And later learned that she was struggling but fine.

Friday night, Monique, Agustin, Jack, Betsy and I went to go see Jerry Seinfeld at the DPAC. He was hilarious. I wanted to laugh so hard but I couldn’t. You know how you get that tickle in your throat and you just start coughing like crazy? Ya, I spent ten minutes trying to keep it in. Lol. I looked like I was going into convulsions. Before hand, the three of us went to Tyler’s Taproom for dinner. I kept it healthy and ordered the pulled pork plate with braised greens, fries ad a Belgium blonde to wash it down.

Saturday morning Monique and I received a frantic text from my mom. My grandma was suffering badly as a result of the stroke. Immediately plans went into play. My aunt Dolores and cousin Vanessa were fying out of Charlotte to LAX. My mom and aunt Nancy were waiting for their rental car to drive from Vegas to Oxnard. Monique and I waited helplessly at home waiting for news once the family got to grandma. The news we were left hanging with sounded devastating. Monique started cleaning up in the event we had to leave. I couldn’t stay home and dwell on it. Agustin and I met up with some friends to keep us occupied. We met up at Tabernas Tapas for Spanish appetizers and drinks. Afterwards some ice cream.

The night ended with us feeling like things were all ok with grandma….or so we thought.
