I’m gonna whine a lot. You’ve been warned.
I know. Long time, no post.
I’ve had a headache that’s been hanging around since the weekend. Friday night, after I was all packed and ready for Rhinebeck, the headache turned into a migraine.
No Rhinebeck for me and Susan.
The headache lingers. I’m 98% sure it’s a tension headache and I just don’t know how to get rid of it.
Mom is back in the hospital. She went yesterday to have her stitches/staples removed. I figured this was good because she might be a little more comfortable without the pulling of the stitches, etc.
Again scary because she called me for 2 minutes to say “I’m sending your Dad home in the limo (car for hire – no bar or anything). They’re keeping me here because I’m so weak. Gotta go – they’re coming for me now.”
Multiple phone calls to hospital, brother, etc., just to find out where she was.
Today, after 14 phone calls in 2 hours (let’s hear it for the phone chain), I found her. I got her on the phone and she told me she was very low on some IUMS. Her phrase for potassium, magnesium, calcium. You know. IUMS. Also severely dehydrated. So weak she couldn’t walk into the hospital for her appointment, which was good. If they didn’t question why she was using a wheelchair, they might have just sent her back home.
Now she’s got another few days in the hospital (says the doctor). Same floor as before so I’m figuring the nurses will be really nice to her since we sent them a basket of cookies for her last stay.
So, forgive me for not posting. I’m worn out. Don’t even want to cook. (Be quiet, Shan. I know I hardly ever cook. Still.) Feel like my eyes have been used as punching bags. Wouldn’t be surprised if I had a sinus infection but let’s hold that for another time, ‘k?
Tell me happy stories of your great weekends. Tales of Rhinebeck will be appreciated.
