Only 9 Hours Sleep in Last 60 Hours ! But also GOOD NEWS !

Thursday, June 05, 2014

Absolutely cannot handle things any more.

Jack finally told his brother that we HAVE to get a regular daytime sitter for Dear Oscar.
One starts tomorrow. She is an NA and will reheat food (still from us) and do light housework.
WHEW ! What a Relief!
IF... I can make it until tomorrow !

Matthew is with Oscar tonight.


2) Oscar is walking most of the time with a walker instead of a wheelchair

3) Nurse said Oscar has improved enough to stay alone after he goes to bed

As I said, Matthew is there tonight, but we are still concerned in case Oscar gets up during the night. Someone will still stay if needed. Matthew also said he will continue to try to stay at once a week just to be with his Papaw!

After coming home this evening, I felt I was literally at the breaking point.
First I had 6 wheat thins - all I'd eaten ALL DAY !
Then I called Dad. He is doing well. Can't get to see him until at least Sunday. I paced for the 20 minutes we talked. YAY !
Got on pc to check 600 MORE EMAILS! (And post update here)

This post by Matthew on Facebook took my breath away and IMMEDIATELY helped CALM me!
So I HAVE to share with You Dear Friends.
Hope you enjoy it as much as I!

Jack's 50th high school reunion is this weekend.
I feel so OLD, FAT and UGLY !
Not sleeping much has not helped.

I just want to make it through this weekend - reunion stuff tomorrow night and most of Saturday.
Then, Lord willing, next week maybe Jack and I can RELAX !
Whatever THAT IS - I can hardly remember!

HOPEFULLY, I can get back on track - my life and Spark.
all have taken a big toll.



THANK YOU SO MUCH for your continued support
while I have been going through this hellish period.
Your Prayers/Good Thoughts have sustained me.

Isn't it funny how people you have not met - and probably never will -
can have such a major influence!

I will never forget your kindness !

Guess what ? I wasn't the oldest, fattest or grayest

And Jack was one of the younger looking fellas !

Started with 8 HOURS SLEEP !

Also 3 loads of laundry, grocery shopping
and checking on Oscar. He ADORED the NA that came today.
There will be 2 different ones alternating days.
The other one comes tomorrow !

Sending OODLES of LOVE to You All !

    I tried to look at Matthew's page, but it wouldn't open up.

Try not to stress out about the reunion - who cares what others think? You have been dealing with many serious issues and have come through them with flying colors. A reunion is not worth it! Just enjoy the company of your husband and have FUN!

I am so very proud of you for coming through everything you've been through lately! Glad to hear that Oscar is doing better and that you have hired someone to be with him so you can finally take care of yourself a little!

    Tried to got to the page and got errors too. Plus I have found that if you do not have a FB account that they don't let you look at it. I don't have one.
