Yesterday was quite a day. I was all dressed ready to leave for the gym when my phone rang. It was the nurse saying that my MIL was unresponsive and her blood sugar was over 200. Dropped everything and hubby and I quickly got dressed to go there. We thought surely this was it but when we got to the nursing home, she was up, dressed and in her wheelchair waiting to go to breakfast. What??? Guess this is going to be our life for a while. She has lost 11 pounds in 2 weeks. She has lost interest in eating so they are taking her to the dining room to encourage her to eat rather than letting her eat in her room.
My nephew went to see her on Monday and she didn't know him. My son and granddaughter went yesterday and they acknowledged that she was loopy, rambling in her words, mumbling. This is maybe the last time they will see her.
My husband is now sick and last night we went to a Jimmy Buffet concert in Pensacola, Fl. It was fabulous but by the time we left, before the last song, his head was splitting. As we walked out, we heard Margaritaville through the building and into the parking lot so we didn't miss anything. Today my 3 year old grandosn is coming as he is sick as well. So our day is rearranged again.
I got a call from my new personal trainer at around 5:00. My previous trainer took another job so now I have to start over. Maybe he will be better and help me get restarted as The Biggest Loser is a Slow one right now. There are only 8 weeks left and I'm still hovering at 5 lbs lost. Just can't seem to get motivated due to being sick and MIL. And now hubby being sick.
My clients are clammering to see me. I have to go out this morning and rearrange one due to grandson's coming over but I'll manage. Yesterday, when I thought MIL was passing, I just cried warm tears. I think I need that release. Something. Thanks for listening. I know you are out there and I appreciate the encouragement. Thanks.
