My sis is finally home after almost 2 months of being either in the hospital or in rehab. She is doing well and is very happy to be home. I'm so glad too.
I saw my doctor this morning for a regular BP check, which was very good this morning. My doc is also my sis's dr so she has been following Tina's progress. So we had an honest discussion about her health. Dr said it's very hard to watch the steady decline of someone I love. She said she could bounce back for awhile but...
I told dr about being extremely exhausted all the time & she said she would be surprised if I wasn't after working 4 days a week & constantly running back & forth being patient advocate for my sis. I have no other close relatives besides my husband to help me out & he truly just made things worse a lot. I love my hubby but he doesn't understand that there is no one else to help.
No one ever can know how stressful an ordeal like watching a loved one with a serious illness & there is nothing you can do to help but be there all the time. So I'm going to follow my doc's advice and take it easy & rest up as much as I am able.
Sorry for rambling on about this. I really appreciate that my spark friends are here for me.
