I am doing okay. I have times where it kinda gets lost in other stuff I have to do. My mom and I went shopping for clothes for the wake and funeral today, (I weigh less than I have in a while but due to my swelling from surgeries still my clothes dont fit). We both started crying at 1 store in the dressing room, the lady in the next dressing room must have been wondering...
We picked out flowers today and put a deposit down for the restaurant. We later returned to the funeral parlor to bring her dentures, my papa also brought her life insurance info that my dad looked over with him, and the funeral director is going to help him with that. The 5 of us had some lunch at the restaurant that we will be having brunch at on Tuesday.
My joints from the CD are flaring so badly I can barely walk especially having trouble with my left knee, I have lost a great deal of ROM with it in just a few days, the 1st appt my Dr could get me in with a Rheumy is Sept 18th (they called 5 and I had called a bunch too). Not to mention both ankles are swollen and my R hip near the groin, the manager at the restaurant asked if anyone needed handicapped access (since that entrance is outside of that room as opposed to within the main entrance) Eric jokingly pointed to me as I hobbled down the stairs.
I am having my okay times and my crying times, then feel bad when I start thinking about it & that I had actually forgotten about it slightly.
