Thank you for prayers! Charles got to come home on Tuesday. He is tired, but breathing better. He has several chronic health conditions, mostly caused or complicated by Agent Orange poisoning. The congestive heart failure is the one that usually threatens his life and puts him in the hospital. They are trying a different combination of medicines to see if they can cut down on hospital visits. Kathleen

I am lucky to be able to leave DH for a few hours during the day. Thank the Lord for my water aerobics classes. I have made many friends there. Yesterday I reconnected with one of those people. It felt so good. I rarely have enough energy to even plan an activity away from home. A month or so ago I took DH to a craft fair. It worked out very well. The weather was very pleasant. As I say I rarely have enough energy t take him on an outing like that.

Have you seen the thin string braided bracelets that teens make? Supposedly you make a wish when this is tied on your wrist. You are supposed to make a wish and then leave it on till it gets weak and breaks off. When I visited my family a teen there tied one on me. My wish was that family would visit us when DH and I moved there. I still have the braided cotton bracelet on my wrist.
It has been there so long that I think about it and my wish. It is making me brainstorm how I can entice family to visit us.

chris

Today I stop and think before putting anything into my mouth. HALT! Hungry? Angry? Lonely? Tired?


It feels like I am not moving, but I guess I am. Even turtles eventually move from place to place. chris

I hope so, too! My husband can still do a lot sometimes, but I never know when he is going to be too sick to be left alone. Of my relatives, only one lives less than three hours away. Most of them live at least six or seven hours away, and some much more than that. I am to the point where I don't dare leave him alone long enough to visit even the closest one. You get to feeling isolated, don't you? I am praying you will be able to move soon.

I actually in general don't like holiday weekends. being a caregiver, I always just have too much work to do. It is extremely hard for me to plan in fun. I hope in a year we will be moved near my family and social events will happen much more often.

Granddaughter loves to wear fairy dresses and princess dresses, too. In fact, she refuses to wear pants at all! We were going to drive up and see them in a week and a half, but hubby is not well enough for a 6-8 hour trip one way. I probably am not, either. So they are going to schedule a visit here.

Hello Friends. Have been out of state visiting DH's family. That is so tough without him. Then had a weekend of company and had a great time with friends. DC are home now to celebrate middle son's birthday. So 6 of us for dinner tonight.

Puppy is growing like a weed and is quickly becoming house trained !! He is good at obeying and I am thankful he is not persistent about staying getting on the furniture. He will be such a large dog I want him on the floor. ;-)

Glad to catch up with you all and praying for you!

Georgine, you are in my prayers every day. Dementia just makes all the other stuff that much worse. So far, my hubby does not have that problem.

I've been having a lot of pain the last two nights and today all day. My medical test was a week ago, so I will call tomorrow and see if they have results. I hope it is my gall bladder because that would be pretty easy to fix. But I'm also having headaches. I need to find a neurologist here in town.

Chris, I love red roses on a trellis! They are so beautiful.

good morning! 41 degrees here this morning at 6:30 when I took brandy out. Now I have the window open supposed to get to 76 today. I want to plant the few flowers I have left. I saw a new chiropractor yesterday so had to go thru the paperwork etc. He d a little adjusting but said he wants to go slow till he sees what way is best for me. 2days ago it affected my whole left leg to the groin but most of it was gone yesterday morning.I can still feel it in my lower back but what little he did made it better and made my knee pain less, i like that! He gave me several exercises I will do today. I haven't used the stability ball yet but will try.
One reason I put off going to see him is because I didn't want to deal with more appts. but here we go. I will see him at 8:445 tomorrow and then go to the eye clinic again. John thought he was seing bettr but then I gave him the tears (called Refresh) and they are gel so it clouded him up. He does fine in the morning but the dementia started again in the afternoon and then I can't leave him and I don't want to live that way. Once I see what appts. we have from this week, i will make one for him . We are supposed to go for another eye shot on the 30th but I need to ask if that should wait or what. Hard to find someone to drive us so far-2 hours one way and i know my lower back won't like that. So it goes and I have to get done any errands before late afternoon when the dementia starts.2 days before he was fine all day. have to keep going here, Georgine

I had a much better day yesterday, and today was not bad, either. Just a bit of a headache and light sensitivity. And, of course, the usual tremors and vertigo. Gut pain was very mild. But hubby is still doing much better! I'm still waiting for test results. I'm sorry to hear others are having their own health issues, too. It certainly does make it more difficult! Kathleen

Caregiving is hard enough without our own health issues to contend with. I guess "that's life!"

My legs are hurting and every time DH needs something, I want to cuss.

I just had to get up to reposition his leg, then to let him outside, and then again to let him inside!
ANd bedtime will soon be here. Oh my.I am grumpy!

Good morning--rain starting now. I could see some very black clouds out west.
we went to the eye clinic again and the lens had already dissolved. The doctor said that means the eye took all the nutrients from the membrane so she put another one int. It is letting the abrasion heal so hope it works. also hope the insurance pays for a second one at $1400!! but if it heals that abrasion and he can see it is worth it.
We had another bad nite with John and dementia, he knocked the big tv down so i had t call the girls again, too heavy for me to lift. He thought it was a door and he wanted to get out.He was like that from 2 in the afternoon and the medication doesn't seem to be helping. Yesterday he was fine. Oldest daughter was here planting while we were at the clinic and ex SIL finished putting the fence up around the garden. then robin grilled a nice meal for us and cleaned up and had done some laundry too. I am going to have to call the chiropractor before I can't walk anymore, Lower back and left leg all thew ay up. My chiropractor retired and this one is going to involve paperwork thanks to Obamacare, dentist and chiropractors are opting out so the patient gets to do paperwork. I was so spoiled by my old chiropractor as he was semi retired and I never had to do anything, he had a gal that did it all.Then need to call for hubby for a check up. More running and I am not in shape now to even walk well..
I don't understand sparks sometimes. I am checked in to get posts when people on my teams post but I am not getting them??? I sure miss them having been away from the computer more than usual.
John has had his breakfast and meds so I am enjoying my coffee and yogurt. Georgine

Ain't we got fun??!!---an old saying that came to mind with all of going to doctors. My ex SIL drove us to the eye clinic today. My youngest son will take us on Monday.
I watched the doctor put the lens in John"s eye. It is made from amniotic membrane and has super healing powers. She decided to do this to heal that abrasion on his cornea. Usually they would put a patch over the eye to let it heal but because he has only one good eye she chose not to do that.She showed it to me and her assistances (sp?) also came in to watch and look at it. I could have too but could see it from the side where i was sitting. So here is hoping and praying that this works!! He has a really hard time seeing in the evening and I have to help him to the bathroom etc.It does get tiring and I raise my voice in frustration sometimes but better that than hold it in. I am trying to do better.
Dee, I hope you get some answers and you too Kathleen.
time for bed and to read a bit. Georgine emoticon

Hope you get help with the driving, Georgine!

I can't just blame the doctors for being slow. I put off going until I could get insurance again. I lost it when hubby could not work any more. Then we could not afford it. Now I have some. We'll see how much good it does me.

Praying for everyone!

good morning! John is resting, all meds are given, breakfast done, time for me. I really have let these build up, need to answer and delete.
John was a little mixed up last nite, not as bad but should be improving with the lactulose.
The eye doctor wants to insert that memebrane in John"s eye to morrow afternoon and as usual, i am looking to see who can come wirth us. I don't like hi way driving especially when trying find the right turns etc. My oldest daughter drove us everywhere for so long and don't care to do it except to go to the cabin.
Kathleen, seems like they are taking a long time to give you a diagnosis while you are miseraber. It is hard on a caretaker to not feel well while dealing with the stresses, not good for the body and mind. Hope you hear siomething soon.
Chris, hope things will work out for you and DH.
I better move on while John and brandy are takne care of for a bit.
Thank you Dee for you prayers and caring, we all sure need it!! emoticon Georgine

Praying for everyone. Seems a lot of us have pretty challenging stuff going on. Charles did great today. He even went out with his cousins, sister, and dad for lunch. I did not go because of my usual fever and pain. I have another medical test in the morning. Hope they can get a diagnosis. I really need to be doing better to be able to take care of Charles!

Waiting for my pain pill--sometimes this knee is a real pain!!
Glad to see Charles is home again. So stressful running to the hospital and back
Chris, I hope things work out for you and DH. I remember when we were having to move my mother out of the house to a nice assisted ling facility. she was fine with everything til it was the day we were moving her, then she didn't want to go.Made us feel badly but it had to be done.
The eye surgeon called this morning and the insurance is going to cover this membrane she wants to put on John's eye.They are trying to heal that abrasion but it gets better and then worse so now back to salve. pills and tears 4 times a day. Maybe she will change it. anyway, the appt. is for friday afternoon and then she wants us back on Monday. that is stressful too, hard to stay on my program, keep up in the house and one nite we had such a bad time with John and his confusion. I increased his lactulose and last nite was better but he can't see well to get to the bathroom so there i am again. so much to do and seems like not enuff time. I won't give up time on the computer but I missed a whole week for a lot of it last week.
Now need to do laundry. John wet the bed in his sleep and I had just changed all the bedding. I have found once his confusion is gone he didn't have that trouble. My kids are getting concerned about me living this way. Hopefully with the lactulose it will get better. Georgine emoticon

Oh, that is hard, Chris! It is so hard to balance what everyone needs and wants. You are in my prayers.

Charles finally had his procedure today. I should be able to bring him home at about 6:00 this evening. Thank you all for prayers!

Our planned move to the Buffalo area his finally hit DH. He had a bad day yesterday. I knew he was distressed yesterday because he rode his wheelchair all over the house and even wanted to go outside a couple of times. In the evening he finally expressed his worries. We talked about it. My reason is to have more family support around. He is realizing he will be farther from hi family and from a couple of close friends. Before this he was passive and said the move would be fine. chris

Today I stop and think before putting anything into my mouth. HALT! Hungry? Angry? Lonely? Tired?


It feels like I am not moving, but I guess I am. Even turtles eventually move from place to place. chris

Feeling quite a bit better. I'll be able to drive and go see hubby today. They have delayed his procedure again. We're hoping for tomorrow now. His blood is too thin. Thank you, everyone, for prayers!

Thanks! I didn't get to see him yesterday or today. I was just too sick to go out. Headache was worse again this morning, and my fever was back worse than it was a couple days ago. Really bummed out this morning so I called my sister. That helped a lot. I really appreciate this team because I know you get it when people have their ups and downs! Kathleen

Well, Charles will be in hospital until at least Monday. They decided they want to do the procedure on his lung when they can have a radiologist right there helping them with it, so they can't do it on a Saturday.

The cats and I had about a two-hour nap, and my headache is not quite as bad. It has been a long time since I had one that lasted into a second day. I'm sure it has to do with the lack of sleep and the added stress. My next medical procedure is this Thursday. I hope they can find out what is wrong so it can be treated. I am having a lot of gut pain right now, too.

Georgine, I hate it that you have to drive so far for appointments. That is so much more exhausting. You are in my prayers each day.

Kathleen
