family free fall
Sunday, October 03, 2010
On 9/15 I called my sister who went back to stay with our mother due to increased confusion and her husband was in a skilled nursing center recovering from 3 falls in 1 day. My sister pleaded with me to come back and help as well due to her greatly increased confusion. It's been hard. I was able to get FMLA time from work and flew back on 9/17. We saw the lawyer on the following Tuesday and took my mom to the doctor on Thursday. Her husband was released on the 24th and I flew back on the 25th. It's been very stressful and didn't have much time for exercise other than making sure my mom was safe. After I got back we've been trying to paint the outside of our house before the rains start. I'm trying to get back on track but I've been so busy and was totally wiped out this weekend. Didn't do much but am going to try and make an improved effort this week. 10/10 I walk the Portland 1/2 marathon so I know next Sunday I'll be getting my exercise.
