Sister is up and down....

Wednesday, August 18, 2010

Apparently my sister is not ready to die yet and she even was eating in the past few days and carrying on conversations with doctors and visitors even asking to go out for dinner. She alternates from being very sick to seeming to rebound and get better. Her daughter is beyond tired from the drama. I am taking a couple of days off work (tomorrow and Friday) to get some needed rest and do a few household chores I haven't done lately. Hopefully I will get some rest before Monday. emoticon

  


Need to blog quickly....

Wednesday, August 18, 2010

N ot much going on. Gotta get to work early so I can take off half hour early in order to pick up hubby's hearing aid that went to the factory for repair. I will be glad when he can set the volume on the t.v. to a normal level again.

I exercised over an hour yesterday including PT and need a day of relative rest. Will definitely go to the pool after work today to loosen up.

Hope everybody has a happy day!!!

Another chilly morning...57 degrees at 5:45 a.m.

Tuesday, August 17, 2010

It is cool again and have the air conditioner off 2 days in a row. No rain predicted so it should be another pleasant day. My therapy pool is closed this morning so instead I will walk around the block and use the recumbent bike before going to work. Today is the pancake breakfast and I have decided to have Cheerios at home before leaving for work.

This afternoon I will work with PT to start on stairs (I am starting to do stairs and hope to be taking them normally soon).

Hope everybody has a great day. I am still waiting to hear regarding my sister and have not heard anything. emoticon

    Good Morning.
That chilly is coming on fast. Fall is fast approaching. Your cheerios plan sounds like a good one. I've tossed up a prayer for your sister. I know that sisters are special treasures. I have 4 and they are always in my prayers. Have a great day and thanks for sharing your morning.

    I understand quick blogs.

57 degrees outside??? I remember when it was 57 here in Georgia. It was about May 5th and we haven't seen anything that low since then.

Have a healthy week!!

Happy to be able to walk around the block last night...sad news about sister...

Sunday, August 15, 2010

I was a bit worried I wouldn't be able to get around the block (1/2 mile) before sunset but took a chance anyhow and truly amazed myself by making it in about 15 minutes which means I was able to walk 2 miles per hour. This doesn't sound like much but about a month ago my speed was approximately 1 mile per hour after I had a quad muscle tear during physical therapy. That, unfortunately, set my recovery back by about 3-4 weeks. I had to spend one week in a knee immobilizer and got out the walker, too, as I was afraid I would fall and cause more injury.

I haven't been checking my emails lately and was surprised to see my neice wrote me 2 emails (one last Wednesday and one on Saturday morning just before I checked my emails) to tell me my sister probably will be dying soon. She just got out of ICU on Saturday and she has an infection of her kidneys which the antibiotics do not seem to be able to get under control. They plan to transfer her to hospice soon as I assume they have made her DNR/DNI. I probably will be hearing soon that she has passed on. She lives in Duluth which is about 150 miles from here and I am grateful I will be able to drive up there when I need to. emoticon

  Sounds like this is the right time to go; saying 'I love you, good-by and thank you for everything' are important for each person at the time of death. May it be a peaceful passing.

Congratulations on your recovery progress.
