Lot more done staying up all night:)

Wednesday, June 01, 2011

Well, as much as this staying up all night while mom sleeps so I can keep checking her bi-pap is not good for my health, it is allowing me to get sooooooo much more done!!!!
As soon as I get her in bed and we finally get the mask adjusted right, I put on the coffee. I have a cup of coffee or two while I read my Bible and have my quiet time with the Lord. So much better because there are NO interruptions...other than checking on mom every 15 minutes. I prefer that time above any other I think.
I am also getting a lot of packing done for our move next week. I am getting to go through papers galore that I have kept thinking I might need them. Carried out 2 trash bags full of junk that if I haven't needed it by now I'm thinking I never will. It's stuff that was still boxed up from my move here over a year ago. Of course, there were some things that really are important that I had to keep.
We're going to see mom's doctor this afternoon. I'm going to ask him for suggestions on this bi-pap and sleep situation. I have to reschedule an appt with my dr though because I won't lie to her and she would have a fit if she knew what I was doing. Not just the sleep thing but that I am doing 95% of everything for mom. Last month when I went to her mom was in the hospital and she told me that I had to tell mom I could only come up on Monday and Friday because my fibro hasn't gotten worse these last few months and she said I am about to end up in the hospital. She's afraid we won't be able to get me back even as good as I was and that my baseline will be stuck here. If she only knew... Now that being said, I know that God is the one who has and is giving me the strength to do this and He will continue to do so because I'm the only one to do it. She has a few months left at most so I will have to take care of me then.
You know I just realized I may have said a lot of this in my last blog so if I did please forgive me. I'm blaming everything crazy on lack of sleep! lol
Everybody have a great day!!!

    Glad that you're going to discuss what can be done to help your mom & her sleeping issues... YOU KNOW that sleep deprivation is bad for your health... especially for your weight loss progress. Stress & lack of sleep are probably the very worse things for our health. Bright blessings to you my friend. I hope that you get some decent sleep soon. emoticon emoticon

    Thats crazy they haven't fitted her with a mask that fits better, I do hope they have a solution because you need more sleep, quiet time with the Lord aside.

    Take care of yourself with this move, hope this will be the last one for a very long time!

    I do hope you shredded anything that might have your names or any account info on them. Identity thieves look for bags of papers like that.

    Hope you get to have some rest soon emoticon
