Sunday night the Acupuncturists wife called and asked if we wanted to drive to Waterville 25 miles away from here on Monday morning. I knew we were expecting snow later in the morning but I still said YES PLEASE.
I was awake off and on, mostly because of our son's situation with his DW in the hospital and it is not going well. She had asked for pain pills and one nurse was just not being nice to my DDIL. on several occasions so needless to say DIL had to speak up. That brought a Dr to her bedside and there is a problem and now she has to go to back and do the procedure again tonight or tomorrow morning.
DH and I took off early today to go to my appointment and when I got back home it was just beginning to snow heavy in our area. We had not been in long when DDIL called and she told us this was going to happen. She sounded beside herself. Yesterday she was told she could go home but this new development means she will be staying in the hospital much longer.
Our grand kids and our son have to go to an out of town Dr today after work it was arranged that way so DIL is alone. This is not going well.
She always has their house decorated for Christmas she feels she has things to do and the stress level is just not good.
She was dreading the next surgery after the Holidays but now it is imminent she is so very upset. I was talking with her and I just wished I could hug her. She and I are in a place far away from family and just like myself I did almost everything with just our own family while DH worked very long hours. I know just how it is to be in that situation and I know that is what is disturbing my sleep, I should be able to help but I can not.
I send people cards just because they send them to us, happily they are all done.
I wish I could go to her but I know it is out of the question. I cannot talk to DH about this because it will just upset him because he can not drive for long in the snow. So here I am telling my Spark friends my thoughts.
There is no point calling over seas to my family we have rarely been back home and my family has never even seen her or our grand kids. It is written and I am reluctant to send it but I know I will have responses coming back to me so I will send it. When I get encouragement from my spark friends I will be able to think through what I need to say to our son and the grands. They will be out of town for a couple of hours and I feel sure our son has not even thought about eating or picking up medications for the grands. I sure wish I could get to them to pick up the slack but the weather alone is a Major deterrent from Maine to Upstate New York is simply out of the question with the weather outside..
My computer has a letter missing I hope spell check will add it for me. It is the first letter in the word --question --0uestion-- so we will see if spell check can help me out here. NO that does not help at all.
I found the word question elsewhere and cut and pasted it in . At least my brain is working.
Thanks it is time for me to make supper so my mind will have something easier to think about. Thanks Spark friends, Pat in Maine.
