Well I broke down and accepted I have an illness (MS) and I need as much help as possible.
So I have a shower chair so when I feel the world is spinning I have a chair in the shower.
I have a walker with a seat my husband has one also and we are going to a walking trail with our our walkers and we will walk and seat when we are tired.
I have a 4 prone cane this helps me when I am walking to the dr's office and shopping stores and I feel like I am walking up the side of a steep mountain I have the support of the cane to stabilize me.
I want to maintain as much of my independent has possible. I rather lean on a device the anyone when and if that time comes it is ok
When the student is ready the teacher will appear. My illness it my teacher and I am learning a lot about what kind of person I am and taking care of Janet is most important focus right now.
I am doing well with my food choices and exercise to the best of my ability.
The folks who DS was to go to recuperate did not show up at the hospital to take him home with them. I called just check on him. He was at his apartment. He has a inflatable mattress and he live with 4 other people who shares the apartment.
I told him he can stay with me. He said mom I know you are not well and he is concerned for me.
DH and I went to his home to bring him back he lives about an hour away. I have a spare room. So he is with me.
I told him I am not his mother just a good friend who is helping another friend.
He is a great friend who just happens to be my son.
I will keep you posted he will be here for 3 weeks. This should be very interesting.
Thank you all my friends for being there for me. I have no others friends but 'S
This is my son's journey. However, I am very concerned. He is 32 has had diabetes since he was 16 He chose a job as a waiter that was fine I wanted to leave him room to find his own path.
About 2 months ago he had a couple of sores on his feet. He says he went to the beach and hurt is toe. He has a great dr. She bandage his toes and told him to stay off his feet. I has a mother (who is not ready to let go) Ask if he wanted to come to my house to rest and when his foot heal I would take him back home. I also ask if he would like to move back home and get assistance until he could get back on his feet.
Well he came for 2 days and went back home and back to work. He went for a dr's check and was told to go to the ER.
They admitted him. He had a MRI and it showed the infection has spread to his big toe. So he is going for Surgery today. DS called me crying they may have to amputate his toe.
I felt so helpless I am in a exacerbation with MS I am not able to go to him, he is out of state.
So I called the hospital I spoke to the nurse on the floor, the hospital chaplin, the social worker, and his aunt and sister and other family members who are all out of town, I call the church he attends Unity. Members will visit him Sunday. Everyone else came by that day.
I felt so such better and he thanked me. DH thought this was very funny. Actually DS did too. But he appreciated the attention. DS understand I could not be there but his mother would call the Calvary
Thank you all for your support I do not know what I would do without MY 's
