So here I am
I got here late yesterday afternoon
On the plane an overly friendly couple were asking about my trip asked if we could pray over it together
I relented although public displays are not my thing
Prayer is powerful to me
When we landed my phone was ringing
I saw the director of the rehab number displayed
It was my mom
Where are You! I said I just landed
Are you coming to the hospital? I had told her I wasn't I had to meet with the agency I hired to do 24 hr care and then had to go to the grocery store to stock up and cook
She couldn't hear me I couldn't hear her it must have been a real public display....
So I get here and as you know FL suffered a hurricane
So I meet with the agency and the contract is.... I didn't sign it because I have a business and I'm afraid worst case scenario my finances could be affected so I'll make my mom sign who will have relatively nothing to take
Then a good neighbor dropped by and chewed the fat and when he finally left I went to a Walmart to shop for groceries
Well due to the hurricane it was slim pickings and lots of substitutions
Yikes
Hadn't eaten since breakfast and craving a burger buying crapbI don't eat but got out at 8:45 security gate I needed to use closed at 10 so just went home and cooked a meatloaf which will serve for 2 different meals I want to freeze
Then it was 12:30 am and went to bed and now I awoke 4:30 am and bodily I feel like I want to collapse but my mind wants to race
Daughter had been texting me all day about a massive headache all day
She has a bad insurance policy and has been suffering a headache for 2 days doctor prescribed imetrix that didn't work and suggested ER which her insurance doesn't cover
She went to a urgent care out of pocket $175 and they gave her 2 shots that she said helped so far but they said either migraine ir remote possibility annurusim....why am I always 1200 miles away... Husband was really sick night before I left...he can be dramatic but because he wasn't eating and drinking as normal it was obviously a true affliction
Me Here I am went to bed at 12:30 am and awoke panicked at 4:30 am
I feel like I can fall down bodily but my mind is racing
After the last few phone calls with mom thinking she will not be safe st home with out 24hr
unaffordable care
I need rest to be able to cope but I can't sleep

WRAS,

You are doing all that you can...and it's A LOT!!

Keep tackling one task at a time. Your mom is in the home stretch...

...and your daughter is surely just dealing with a migraine. I can't imagine why the doctor would even bring up the completely remote possibility of anything else...SMH!!

Hubs will be okay...it will do him some good to take care of himself, no doubt. ;)

Catch rest where you can...and know you are where you need to be atm...and everything is going to turn out alright because of your efforts.

Thoughts and prayers for you, mom, daughter and hubs!

XOXOXO

Having a little anxiety myself, first time in years, it seems the worst fear is always the next attack, seems i like to give advice but don't take it very well, I know that if I start Praying for others my fears will back off, we are all parts of the one body and we need to learn to all pull together.

May you have the peace you need, I Pray that you find that peace tonight! Peace

Hi Larry my old friend! You always have such sage advice.
Thanks for the prayers and you're in mine.
