The rut is still missing..........
Tuesday, October 11, 2011
So, my life continues with much consternation and upheaval. The daughter and family just left today after arriving on Friday. She was in DC all weekend (even spent a night away from kids!) at photography workshop. Son in law and I tag teamed with the kids. Needless to say I am once again POOPED!!! My 20 month old grandson is VERY attached to his mom so it was tough! But, I'm so glad she had the opportunity to do this (even though we all agreed it was the worst timing ever!). They did put offer on house this morning so we are keeping our fingers crossed.
My dad fell last Thursday and fractured his right femur. Surgery Sunday afternoon (5 hours!). He is very disoriented and has been in a lot of pain. There are questions re: Medicare paying for therapy (they just did for broken hip--some confusion). So, I've also been dealing with many phone calls from my brother and discussing options, issues with hubby as my sounding board.
Needless to say, I am not exercising. Eating is OK but not great, for sure.
Daughter and family return Thursday for weekend.
I'm not getting anything done around the house (barely keeping clean underwear in drawers--soon we'll just turn them inside out!) Had to cancel a dr. appointment today as daughter and hubby were writing offer with realtor and I had kids. I worry about my dad constantly. How much c**p does an 86 year old have to deal with???? Broken bones? Blindness? Nursing home?? End of life is not fair. My heart aches for this wonderful man who is ready to continue his journey but seems to be stuck with a broken body but great vital signs!!!
Will I ever exercise again? Will I ever clean my house? Will I have clean underwear at some point? At this point I'm not sure of the answer to any of these questions.
