It;s been more than a month since I Blogged. It's been a very hard time. My father ended up in the hospital once again. This time it was very serious and I spent a couple of very bad days worrying. Thankfully things have worked out much better. My father recovered, the doctors came through and the nurses were great! After the hospital there was a two week stay in a nursing facility and my father is home and stronger and much improved. Who could figure? Things are much better.
This is the short version of the story. Also I have been to my vascular surgeon and he is very pleased. I have a CAT scan scheduled as a routine follow-up later this week. The only thing about a CAT scan is the fact that I am allergic to the Contrast Dye they use. I have to pre-medicate because of this and that causes some anxiety.
I have been through this all too often and I has become routine.
I miss my old life. I was just beginning to feel useful and the things I was doing were fulfilling. Caring for my father is fulfilling and useful, but it is quite different. I am more of a house keeper/nurse right now. I do laundry, cook the food, dispense medicine and even give shots. This is a very new role for me. I am adjusting.
