A bump on the highway of life

Going through a bit of a rough patch. Doctors appointments all lined up. Family doctor today, heat failure clinic next week followed by the neurologist. They will get me all sorted out

    Oh mann….I’m sad to read this. Dang winter weather adds to it, I’m sure. And right on the heels of Vi’s surgery too, darnitall.
    …k….sending warmth and prayers and strength and HEALING.
    And hugs…(((( Bill and Vi ))))

    Hey Mel. I realize I am just being a big baby, whining because I’m not feeling well. I am disappointed in myself. I write about living each day, making the best of it. When your breathing is affected it is kind of a big thing. I need to get my mind more focused.
    Vi’s surgery was postponed to Feb. 5th. She is really looking forward to getting it over and done

      Nahh…it’s not about being a wuss or a big baby or a whiner (k…maybe a bit of the whiner…LOL…but that means I have good company!!). 😉

      Things get scary, period. Things get harder to manage, period.
      What matters is that we take care of ourselves so we can keep moving and growing and loving.

      Good to hear Vi’s got things rearranged. I bet she and you, both, are ready for her to feel better!

      hey Mel, you have been going through a tough patch yourself. You are right things get harder. This past month has been the hardest I have had to deal with. Antibiotics seem to be finally kicking in and I am on the mend. I will be getting up a post on how you can just reach the “I’ve just had enough, I am about ready to give up point”.
      I really do need to get over all of this before Vi’s surgery

      • Mel says:

        Then I’m relieved to hear the antibiotics are finally doing their job. Yeah!
        You focus on getting you healthy, getting you psst the hurdle in front of you. Then you’ll be “better” and Vi won’t have that added thing to fret about….and you can be present to help her. See how that revolves around you tending to you ? 🙂
        Thank you Mel. It has been a struggle. It seems when I get these things it is getting harder to get past it. Hey, I am well on the road to recovery. I have to be going full force for Vi’s surgery. It is major surgery and is a big deal.
        My biggest concern though is how to try and make her rest as her body will need. My though right now is likely having to use a staple gun on her butt to keep her in bed. Any other suggestions?

    Thinking of you. Hope this sorting out process is quick. Wishing you better days real soon.

    Ways to ensure Vi gets the rest she’ll need….hmmm…
    (Rather liked the staple gun idea, just so ya know….)

    * Duct tape. It comes in lovely colours nowadays. She can be “fashionably stuck”.
    * Sew her nightgown to the sheets
    * Superglue?
    * Cargo straps around the mattress!

    Ooohhh….I know!!!
    * Employ a hunky male nurse … but only for as long she’s bedridden. LOL (bit of incentive!!) 😉
    Hey Mel, all good suggestions. I am still leaning towards the staple gun. Vi read the list and is all for the hunky male nurse so much so she is now thinking her recovery time may take months and months.
