Mom's Home!

Today my mom went home from rehabilitation from a broken hip.  It's been a very stressful 7 weeks.  We were hoping that we would have someone to stay with her during the day while I work so my husband could stay at night.  But, that didn't pan out.  I'm really discouraged over it, and feeling like I can't depend on anyone, but my wonderful husband said, don't worry, we'll work it out.  What a gem he is.  He's the one who has been keeping me upbeat when I feel so down about everything.  At least this way my mom will save some money.

My mind has been so all over the place, that I haven't had the time or the energy to work on anything related to knitting or sewing.  By 8:30 every night I'm already nodding off and struggling to stay awake awhile longer.  Usually, I just say the heck with it and go on to bed.

So, that has been my life for the past 7 weeks.  I'm really glad my mom is doing better and I know she's glad to be home in her own environment and comfort zone.

Hi Sharon,

I'm sorry to hear about your mom but glad she's getting better. It can be difficult when our parents need us and we can't always be there. I quit my job to stay with mom while she was passing away with cancer. It was difficult but I would have done it again. That time was special. All we can do is the best we can. Hopefully something will work out.

Hugs and prayers,
