7 Hour ER Visit

It is almost 9:00 and we are all just getting up.  I took Mr. Magic to the ER at 8:30 last night because he had been sick all day.  I kept having him check his blood sugar number because he is diabetic.  The reading was coming up 600+ and that is very dangerous and concerned me.
After testing, blood work, insulin, and IV of many fluids, they got his number down into the 200s.  The Dr. thinks it was because he was sick all day and couldn't keep anything down.  He is to see his Endocrinologist this week.  We left the hospital at 3:00 am.
Terry is eating some breakfast right now and feeling much better.  Hopefully, after a regular day of eating on schedule, we will see the number go down even more.
Not feeling well, Terry slept a lot yesterday, so he wasn't too tired.  I was exhausted and literally fell into bed when we got home from the hospital. I am pretty sure I will sleep off and on throughout the day.
ER visits are not pleasant, but thank God we have somewhere to go when we are in distress.

Welcome Home

This sweet boy smothered me with kisses and licks when I walked in the door Friday evening.  Believe me, I gave him many kisses and squeezes in return.  And not one bark from him all through the night.  He was SO happy Mommy was home.

On the Road Again

On the road headed home to Mr. Magic and sweet little Jake.  Not too sad because Casey and Amanda will be coming for Thanksgiving.  Had a wonderful time!!!

Big Cat

Casey went flying today so I went out and about for a while.  I stopped for some lunch and THIS is what was in the car next to me.  Not something you see every day.  I thought maybe it was a small cheetah, but my facebook friends quickly told me that it is a Savannah Cat - a domestic cat crossed with a medium size African wild cat, or a Serval.  No matter ~ I know I wouldn't play with one.  He was large and he showed me his fangs.  Beautiful in color with beautiful large eyes.  First thing I did was check that he was getting air.  The vehicle was running, so I assume the a/c was on.  He was still there when I left.
Couldn't get good photos ~ there was too much glare from the sun.

Casey's Birthday

 Well, here we are ~ Casey and I ~ at Two Blokes Brewing Company.  We had a great lunch in downtown Charleston and this is where he wanted to go for his birthday.  I'm not a beer drinker ~ tried 4 samples and ended up with a coke ~ but I'm happy if he's happy.  Just glad to be down here with him.  

My son, my friend, my heart.

Visit with my South Carolina Friend

 Had the best time with my friend Pam Aries today!  We had lunch at Five Loaves and then a coffee at Starbucks while we talked and laughed.  Never enough time!!
Pam made this sweet spirit doll "Flower" that came home with me.  I love it.  Thanks for another fun visit, Pam.  I really do feel like I've known you for many years. ♥  And, we talked SO much art that I'm itching to paint now.

Isle of Palms

 Casey runs 3-1/2 miles every day.  So, this morning we went to Isle of Palms where he could run on the beach and I could walk at the water's edge and enjoy the ocean.  It was cloudy with the threat of rain, but it held off until we left the area.  
I can't visit my son without walking one of the nearby beaches!
 Many sea murals in the area.
 Rainbow sea foam.
 Sea weed.
 A beach is not a beach without a fence or two.
 You can't visit the ocean without sea gulls all around.
 Ready for take-off.
 Isle of Palms was battered by Hurricane Irma.
 Black and White.
 Black and Brown.
 More damage by Hurricane Irma.  Further down the beach Casey saw machinery moving the sand around that had piled very high at the dunes.
 Ahhh! Nothing else like it.
Beneath the Pier.
Greeter at CVS !!

Wando River

 This afternoon we went to the Wando River Grill and Marina, sat outside by the water, and talked for a while.  It was a nice relaxing afternoon.

Missing Mommy

Mr. Magic texted this photo to me last evening.  He says that Jake is barking all night every night looking for me.  This makes me SO sad.  I can't wait to hug the little guy once I return home.

Tiny Green Frog

This little fellow greeted us last evening when we returned to Casey's.  He was hanging out under the garage light.
