Nothing new on Kim. She’s still unresponsive and on a respirator. The neurologist told my brother they’ll begin trying to take her off the respirator on Saturday but it looks like it’s going to be a long time before we really know anything. She’s had some response to pain on her right side. Jerks her arm and moves her leg when they inject her or change her IV. All I want for Christmas is a miracle.
In other venues, life moves on. Today is the last day before Christmas break begins. My students have been wonderful and they’ve gone out of their way to give me hugs and offer prayers. I’m touched. I’ve had them creating holiday videos using the Animoto.com site and today we’re going to watch their videos. I made two double batches of Sistah Pam’s much loved Oaty Bars and bought some Country Time lemonade for them. It should be a pleasant day.
Some new drama from DIL. She’s claiming she doesn’t have a phone anymore and I know that’s not true because she can’t live without a cell phone glued to her ear. Still, she’s told the social worker that she doesn’t have one. I’ve placed two calls to the social worker and DS has called him twice without getting a return call. In the meantime, the weekend is here and he still doesn’t have any visitation set up. This will be the second weekend in a row that he hasn’t been able to spend with the kids. I suspect DIL is doing it deliberately to try to keep him from seeing them over the holidays but DS says he’s calling the caseworker’s supervisor today to see what can be done.
It’s worrisome. DIL doesn’t just crash and burn when she goes off the deep end. It’s always preceeded by strange, unprovoked incidents where she’s just plain mean. I’m afraid that’s what’s happening and it scares me. There’s been nothing going on and there’s no reason for her to suddenly be out of touch. Even if she doesn’t have a phone, she has my cell phone and home numbers and could easily call me to set something up. I’d like to think everything is okay but past experience has taught me that something isn’t right. I’m getting angry at the caseworker. I left a message for him last week that I didn’t have any way to contact her to set up visitation and I would have thought he’d be all over that. Maybe he’s mad because DS got on his case about sending them both for testing at the same time. Whatever’s going on, it shouldn’t be happening.
