I'd been doing fairly well until this week and the waves of the holidays and all that need to be done are drowning me!! I had my head above water until this week---now I'm going down for the third time!! HELP!!
My dad is hanging in there. Very weak and sores will not heal but hospice has backed off their prediction of him being gone in a couple of weeks. They will only say he is failing every day (well, duh! so am I!) He continues to be in pain although they changed some of his pain meds and he says it's better. BP continues to be low and he's on oxygen. This is a constant worry and drain on me.
I haven't walked all this week! BOO!!! I just feel so swamped with finishing wrapping and shopping. Plus, I'm trying to keep up with house, etc. in case we have to make a quick trip to Indiana. We are going to Hawaii on January 4th (story for another day!) so I'm also trying to get organized for that. It's our 40th wedding anniversary.
My eating is good--even with the holidays I am trying to be really careful. Although I know when the kids are here I may have a harder time but it's only one day (26th). I NEED to get walking next week. I want to feel fit and healthy when we go to Hawaii.
Hope everyone is hanging in there. I love Christmas for the grandkids and the idea of Christmas but it's always a relief when it's over!!!
