Hi, I’m still here and have plans to continue blogging. So much for 2013 goals. 😦 Life has just hit a wee bit of a bump in the proverbial road. Trying to sort some things out. My husband’s health had not been doing well last week, then he fell Friday before this past one. He had a compression fracture in his spine. It would’ve been quite enough to handle, but things started to get worse.
We went back to the ER the next day, Saturday, and he was admitted to the hospital. It was a combination of multiple things including dehydration, pneumonia, exacerbation of COPD, and heart issues as well. Everything since the fall has happened so fast. Thankfully he was discharged late Tuesday.
There is truly no place like home, but now there are new issues we are having to figure out. He’s on oxygen for the first time ever. Home health is sending a nurse and physical therapy out a couple of times a week for a while. Hopefully things will improve, but for now things are a little crazy around here.
I’ve been so tired, I haven’t done much writing. I did write in my journal last night and it felt sooo good. Needed to unload a bit. Life will start settling into it’s own rhythm soon and I’ll start writing more. For now, would so love to have just maybe a couple of hours undisturbed sleep.
