Okay, I admit it, I am so ugly to my MIL and my husband right now. It's a terrible thing but it is true. When MIL came home with us on WEd, she was starting to cough and now, after 2 days, she is hacking and hacking. All through the night. So, somehow, I need to get her to a doctor or take her back to the nursing home or something. I just can't handle this. Or, I am not willing to handle it.
My husband got up with her at 4:00 this morning because she was hacking and he gave her a breathing treatment. Of course, now I am fully awake and have been since 4:00. ANd when I"m tired, I"m irritable. In addition, I've started my own form of coughing with a sore throat and sneezing. Not pretty around here. My car is in the shop so I'm stuck so how to get treatment for her, I don't know. Hubby is working today. The home health nurse will come by but what if she has bronchitis? That requires an antibiotic.
I am so ugly and so resentful right now. IT is a terrible thing. Who's going to take care of me when I'm 93? They will just stick me away somewhere and forget about me.
We have found a woman who will come and sit with her and she starts tonight at 4:00 as we have somewhere to go.
I could really use a few hugs if you would be so kind as to send them my way.
