Running Out of Energy Here

October 9th, 2007 at 02:57 am

I'm more tired each day. Can't exactly figure out a way to stop doing anything I've currently got on my plate.

My aunt is still in our local hospital, but her son & dtr in law came too this morning, so have been here at the house......staying for dinner, in between visits to the hospital. Gads, was that a run on excuse for a sentence!

Kept mom home this evening, and have her in bed. The cousin & wife are going to a local hotel, which will be great. Didn't try to change his mind there.

Tomorrow, moms follow up for the breathing difficulty and last weeks ER visit for her.......and then to the hospital to see her twin.

Wed, moms cardiologist appt which stems from her ER visit too.....

Beyond that, I'm not too sure. But, I don't see anything on the current list that can be dropped off.....it all has to happen.

Did find out that LifeAlert has intercoms in addition to the other equipment. Might make some calls tomorrow to see if we can get that set up here at home. It would help me to get something here.......as I'm just barely sleeping, trying to always be listening to hear mom.

This is definately harder than having a houseful of special needs kids. But, I had help then, of all kinds. Not even sure what kind of help I could ask for right now......I will get the nephew to get the intercom system in here and set up; that I can pass along. The rest, I'll just cross one thing off at a time.

Managed to convince mom not to order pizza for tonight.....made soft tacos with leftover roasted chickens from the week end. Had all the trimmings from the garden; a very yummy meal. Kept it low sodium (which we're supposed to be doing for mom) and spent nothing. Worked for me.

    You've really been going through a lot lately. Don't let yourself get too stressed, its easy to do when caring for others. I hope your Aunt gets well soon.
