I was going to pray for 1 problem at a time, but I think that is impossible, but I know I need to focus on 1 at a time or I won't get anything accomplished.
I know God helps those who help themselves, so I am working on it. I started out the day by calling 2-1-1 and talked to a nice volunteer from the United Way who was located in Duluth (about 150 miles north of here). She said since I am going to see my internist today (who is also my husband's internist) that I should discuss the possibility of his needing home care or a sitter or day care with the doctor. I am going in for a very bad cold which has settled in my throat and lungs and I am coughing and coughing and wheezing some (I have mild asthma). If they can't see me today I will have to go to urgent care.
It seems that the old saying, "take care of yourself first or you'll not be able to help others" is true and I am taking it to heart today.
