Busy day today: assessment nurse came yesterday. Already today I have recliner chair that powers me up to my feet. Best of all the Bath Lady came! Oh joy – really clean hair and a good scrubbing!! Oxygen people will come swap out my machine to the one they will use. Pack of meds came with morphine. This will help me when I get “air hunger” and feel like I can’t breathe (sort of a panicky feeling). Also zaps me out and leaves me sort of drifty.
Our son and wife and kids were here over the weekend- visited in short bursts – so great to see people but just can’t take long visits. A couple stopped by too. Then my pal (we are the Loony Old Ladies) came by to report on her visits to the High School Students — getting the registered to vote and giving them some civics 101! They are so eager to learn and she is a fount of information. I had hoped to go with her when I was feeling better – but now am the cheering squad.
It is nice to have a visitor who doesn’t just sit looking as though I might die any moment but who engages me in the world.
Best of all Jim and our daughter Kristin are here running errands for my every need. So lovely – only
a text message away or just sitting here. Jim spent the day making a daffodil (my fave) for me.
