I woke up this morning feeling revived. I got up and went to the washroom, looked at the scale (didn't gain much except 0.4 lbs) and was quite happy. I finished off the pizza this afternoon.
Still feel really bad about Saturday and Sunday with a friend. I haven't sent her a message - I figure she will contact me.
I went out to the store and bought some Get Well cards - one for her mother, one for her mother-in-law (both will be having surgeries before mid March), and one for her because she is going through all of this and she may end up having surgery if this treatment doesn't work. I dropped them off in her mail box this morning.
I talked to my mother this morning and my sister ... Mom is still in & out a lot. She is almost like a toddler in most things when she is living in her "past" ... it's hard to watch and listen to her. I wish I could take that away from her.
My sister is dealing with her mother-in-law who is in great body shape, but has been diagnosed with congestive heart failure. Her father-in-law has Alzheimer's as well but not as far along as my mother is. My sister also has a son that is autistic (high end) and running two businesses. I don't know how she can do all of this. She is a great inspiration to her husband and children and friends.
I really think the 88 year old lady that lives down the hall is loosing it. She called her car insurance company last week, and ended up calling again today - but this time had me call. As I listened on the phone (we had her on speaker on my phone), I knew what had to be done. I called up her son and told him what he had to get for the car insurance he needed. He was thankful. I went home.
Three times after that, one for opening a jar of jam, another to ask what to do with her kitty harness and leash, and another about a backpack. Then she wanted to give me money for helping her. (I didn't take any)....
Still feeling low and depressed too - just couldn't get the energy to get up and do proper exercise. I did eat this morning and at lunch, but I'm not hungry right now.
Had my health worker here today - I know I was agitated, but not as bad as she said I am! Today though I could feel myself shaking. I really had to concentrate to cut paper and peel a kiwi fruit. She didn't like the idea of me handling and using a sharp pearing knife. But i did it.
I hung out the bell full of bird seed -- haven't seen any birds yet. Maybe I bought the wrong one? With my luck, I wouldn't be surprised if I did buy the wrong type.
And another winter storm is due tonight. So far I'm hearing between 6 & 8 inches of snow. I didn't know we are now the snow belt of the province ... I thought it was the BANANA belt of Ontario
