July 27th, I'm tired... I miss walking..Mom is getting worse
Friday, July 27, 2007
Well, I was doing so good with my walking and calorie counting, right up to when we put mom in the hospital. I really dont think it was putting her in that took the toll on me, I think it was catching that stupid adnoid virus that did me in ! It's been 2 weeks, 2 weeks of sore throats, neck panes, sinus headaches & coughing. Last night was the first tnight I probally slept more than 1 hour at a time.I feel like I can actually swallow today ! I tried walking the other day, and I got 1 mile in. When i was done, my throat felt as if it was on fire. So i didn't do it yesterday. I'll try again today.
Mom gets worse each day. She's 65 pounds, on hospice care. She has stopped taking all med's and only uses morphine now. IT is used to control her air hunger and give her more energy to eat & talk. IT's so hard to watch....
