A glimmer of hope


Monday, September 10, 2012

Well, both good news and bad. My husband went to the hospital this morning, and they're keeping him for a few days while they adjust to his meds. So it's girls only at the Dragon house this week. This sucks, because well, I get to play single mom for a few days, but it's good because he went voluntarily, and they're getting him on a program to allow us to afford his meds.

I took the kitty to the vet, and they sutured him up. Poor thing is wandering around the house in a bit of a daze. Gotta love anesthesia. I'm very lucky with my vet; he's very reasonable, only cost me $62 for the antibiotics, suturing, and anesthesia.

So I've got dinner ready to be prepared, and I'm determined to keep it as normal or the kids as possible. Right now I'm waiting to hear from my husband to see what I need to take for him, since he'll be there a couple of days.

    These things shall pass. Seems like everytime we get money ahead and/or things are going great, something happens to take that feeling away. But we must continue on and keep on trucking. Keep the faith.

    Cats coming out of anesthesia are funny. You know you shouldn't laugh, but you can't help it.

I'm glad to hear that your husband is getting the help he needs. It is never easy having a loved one in hospital, but it sound like he is in the best place.

    I'd say you had a positive day. No one wants to have someone they care about need mental health treatment, but getting it - and getting help with affording the meds - is so much more positive than not getting it.

Does your kitty have the cone on his head to stop him from playing with the stitches? If so, once the anesthesia wears off you'll have some laughs from the battle against the cone. I'm sure he'll be glad when he's all better though.

Remember that this time is temporary. It's not going to last forever. And it's probably better to explain what's happening with your husband to your kids. They don't need all the details, but I'm sure they realize your husband is extra sad (or something similar). By explaining to them that he's seeing a special doctor who will help him to be happier, it will help give them an explaination of why daddy is suddenly gone. When I was in grade school my mother went away for 6 weeks to a pain clinic (I'm sure it was more than that) and we only got to see her a few times. Had they tried to play off that nothing was happening my sister and I would have really freaked out. Instead we put a little more effort into things.

    It's not the same thing, but we had one dog with a growth on her back. To remove it and test it for cancer cost $550, but the stitches came out for free. It has been an expensive month.

I hope all goes well for your husband.
