Lunch and shopping was fun with my sister yesterday. We found many bargains and enjoyed some laughs. Especially the red bathing suit that I tried on - the size was miss marked and I couldn't get it up over my thighs. My sister later asked me if I had tried on the red suit that was hanging on the rack to be put back. When I said yes, she said, "But it's only a size 8 or possibly a 10!" I'm thinking, only in my dreams could I fit into a size 8! (Neither of us could have fit into that suit and she is much smaller than I.) When I was very slim the smallest size I could wear was a 12 because I have a large bone structure. It was good for a laugh however!
With my energy level renewed, we headed home with our treasurers. It was so good for me to take a break from the stress. I had so much more to give hubby, just by taking care of myself. My FIL stopped being able to swallow yesterday. I suspect the doctor will have to start an IV line in order to give him fluids and pain medicine. As his lungs begin to fill up with fluid, his breathing is very labored and painful. He has trouble remembering who we are now. Hubby took a break today, which was good for him too. He was "on call" but was able to stay close to home for a change. Hopefully he will be able to get some sleep tonight.
