I've been very busy this morning re-arranging my schedule. I've even doubled up on certain activities and chores to get everything in. You know the saying, if you need something done, ask the busiest person you know and they'll do it. Well, I don't know about that, but between sticky notes and a to-do list, I'm getting the job done. Today and tomorrow I have scheduled our usual weekly household chores and laundry. Hopefully I can squeeze it all in to three days. Even though tomorrow is my birthday, I don't even want to celebrate it this year. In fact, the thoughts of it make me nauseous. Wednesday, I have a medical massage. A great way to start don't you think? I have a doctor's appointment on Thursday followed by our HOA Board meeting. Then I will prepare a few more meals so that I don't have to cook over the weekend. Any other chores that need to be done have to be completed by Thursday because after that point in time, I will be allowed to do nothing for 3 days. Friday at 8a.m. I will go to the Surgical Center and have another series of six+ spinal shots. They give me general anesthesia for this procedure. This will put me in bed all weekend. Monday I'll pack and get ready for my flight to Maryland to stay with my daughter. Tuesday I will fly to Baltimore. I only bought a one way ticket because I have no idea when I will return. I've had to cancel out on many activities that have been planned for months but my baby girl takes top priority. Together, she and I will get through this. Hubby has been wonderfully supportive throughout. He is my rock. I only regret that I won't be here to take my sister to the doctor. Her car ac has stopped working and I'm afraid of her going out in the 98 degree heat. Maybe I can find the time to take her and do a little more juggling. When I get to my daughter's house, I have books, puzzles and some arts and craft projects planned for us to do. Maybe we can do each others nails and hair. That would be fun and relaxing. I will cook and freeze some food for her to eat when I'm not there. It will be much more healthy than most frozen processed meals. Together we will face all of those doctor's appointments to see how her brain is healing. I am also concerned about her neck. They won't continue to treat that until her brain is healed to a safe level. After the neck is treated then they will look at the lower back. Right now she is in so much pain, it's hard to tell exactly where it's coming from - which body part. Well I'm off for today's chores.
Have a wonderful day everyone!
