July Unexpected Happenings
Wednesday, July 11, 2018
This has been a bit of a stressful week for me and my family.
My MIL that is in a nursing home close to us since January fell and broke her hip. So needless to say I had to step up with my DH and be by her side during surgery, in hospital and now back at the nursing home. My DH and I are dealing with everything but she is not the most cooperative person.
We understand she is in pain but the fall was totally her fault for not asking for help and wanting to prove she can do it on her own (cause she says she doesn't know why she is in a nursing home). Well after various falls and warnings we told her you will eventually break something it happened!
She had a rod and three screws placed and now is the long road of therapy which she is fighting us. I get all the insults and screams but when my SIL came to visit for a few hours she was all smiles!!!
So since last week I have been at hospital or nursing home and my exercise and participation in the challenge has not been to the max. I am trying to weening her from our visits because I need time to get my son that is leaving for California on the 20th ready and this is going to be hard enough. I also go back to work at the end of the month and she needs to understand that we need to work!!
My DH is not taking any of her manipulations either and feels sorry that I have had to do this but on the other hand I really don't mind doing this what I don't care for is my SILs lack of compassion toward their mom and how she makes excuses for them but if my DH is working she is questioning!!!!
I told her today he does not own his company and he needs to travel so I am here!!
Well I just needed to vent a bit because sometimes I get a bit overwhelmed but the next day I go back for more!!!
Just wanted to let my spark team know cause I have been a bit out of circulation and I will be for a while longer since I need to get my youngest son ready to leave!!
This will be bittersweet cause he is going to continue his education and hopefully someone will hire him so he can have experience. There don't seem to be QA for video gamers here in Florida or jobs want experience but if you don't work you wont get experience!!! Please keep him in your prayers that he might find a job soon!!
Thank you all for listening!
