First of all, I want to thank all my Spark buds for all the thoughts and prayers for my DH. It is overwhelming...in a good way...I feel loved. I wish I had time to respond to everyone individually. I am way behind in my Spark online activities...especially reading blogs, responding to Sparkmail, and sending goodies. Please know I am not ignoring you. I read a lot of friend's blogs and try to comment on most. Even if it is just a couple of words or an emotioncon. I do that just so you know that I CARE. I really do. I try to be a positive force example for my children. I hate the word "can't". It is like fingernails on a chalkboard to me. So I don't want to say I "can't" get caught up on my Spark stuff.
This whole ordeal with DH is really cramping my Spark time. So please be patient with me. I am not deleting any mail. I promise, I WILL read everything. I just may not have the time to respond to everything. Especially since I will be using my phone more for reading blogs and mail, etc. It is more difficult for me to see on my phone. I need new glasses. Man, it suc>s to get old. Well, it beats the alternative, I guess. My birthday is in about 2 weeks...can you tell?
Update on DH...
He was moved to the rehab floor. He is in PT and OT virtually all day. He is progressing very well. He is still getting great drugs for the pain...he says it reminds him of his 20's. Whoa! I think the drugs were a lot safer then.
My MIL STILL has not been to see him. He has been there 8 days. She lives closer to the hospital than I do. Don't know or care what her excuse is, really.
While I am at work, DH emails me through out the day. Friday, he sent me an email asking if I could take a class for care-giving on next Wednesday. My first thought was...WTH...I need to take a class on how to CARE? I was a little insulted. I spend most of my time at the hospital. I get my children on the bus, go to the hospital, then to work, get my children off the bus, and back to the hospital, The only thing I do at home is sleep and shower. And my house looks like The Wreck of the Hesperus. I don't know how it got this way...all we do is sleep here.
So he explains to me, that the class is to show me HOW to care for him PHYSICALLY. OH OK. I am glad we got that straight.
So please know that, even though it may seem that I am absent, yes, I truly CARE about YOU too!
