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.
MORE GOOD INFO !!!
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!

Oh, Yes, MORE STRESS.
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.
STRESS, BUSYNESS, LITTLE SLEEP, LITTLE EXERCISE, TERRIBLE EATING
all have taken a big toll.
I AM N-O-T GIVING UP !
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 !
