Trying to Stay on Track
Friday, June 07, 2013
This has been an incredibly stressful week with my mother in the hospital. Trying to focus on work and coordinating her care, etc. has been tough.
What has suffered? My exercise. Now I am paying for it with back issues. I think I've worked out 2 days this week. Hopefully today will be day 3.
My mother is improving and yesterday they didn't overmedicate her so at least we could have a conversation when we visited.
The doctor told me the other day that she'd probably be going home on Friday or Saturday but I didn't hear anything yesterday and didn't even see the doctor so I doubt it will be today.
I'm kind of hoping that it's Sunday actually. The doctor wants her to have 24-hour care for a week and I have them starting on Sunday. If she's released before that I will be the one staying overnight, which is okay but I prefer my own bed!
Working at home again today so I WILL get in a workout and hopefully make some headway on my project, then go to the hospital tonight for a visit.
For some reason I thought I would get a rest with my mother in the hospital but it's actually been more stressful because I've been worrying about her.
