The last few days have shown me that life is oh so precious. We can not take for granted any day for any reason. It can all be taken from us in the blink of an eye. Every breath, every precious breath that we take can be torn from us very quickly.
No, I am not talking about the Corona Virus. I am talking about something that happened to me personally. My dear husband had to be taken by ambulance to the hospital. Thank goodness they had room for him in the emergency room. He could not breath,he could barely speak. He was there for four agonizing days. He was diagnosed with congestive heart failure and had 2 1/2 liters of fluid drained from the lining around his right lung. In four days, he lost over 20 pounds because of all the excess fluid in his body.
Luckily my sweet sister lives very close to me and she held me together. She kept me grounded. She was my constant companion and for that, I owe her a debt that I can never repay. Thank you is not enough.
I am so happy that he is home now. Recovery will be long and hard, but at least he is here with me. So when I say that life can not be taken for granted, I mean it. I could have lost the man that I have loved for over 25 years in an instant.
So please, think before you speak and never ever go to bed angry with someone. You might not have the chance to tell them that you are sorry.
This might sound a little bit paranoid, but I’m going out tomorrow to get groceries and I’m afraid. I’m going to wear a mask 😷 and take all precautions so I should be fine. It’s just that you don’t know what to expect and who to listen to. I know that I’m going out with a new perspective of everything and everyone!
Always in my thoughts are that I don’t know what I’m getting into. Then I think,,,you’re a grown woman, you’re smart, why would you do this to yourself? Why are you letting yourself get so worked up. You’re doing what you are supposed to do. You will be fine. Besides you need the fresh air 💨. You need to feel the sun 🌞 on your face. You need to be normal…aware but normal. That feels right. Feeling normal. At least for a while. 😌 ❤
How many of you are going without sleep right now? I try to sleep and the more I try, the worse it gets. So I get up instead of tossing and turning. On top of everything else, I wear a C-Pap mask. It’s a pain in the ass taking it off and putting it on so many times a night. It fits well and I’m used to wearing it, so that’s not the problem. I have tried going to bed early 😂going to bed later 😳 and still not having any luck. At least two days a week, I get no sleep. This all started about a month ago. Could it be stress? I’m sure that isn’t helping. My husband has several health issues and I’m trying to keep calm for his sake. It worries me.
Give me some advice and ideas. I’ve tried chamomile tea ☕and it doesn’t have any effect. I’ll try just about anything at this point in time. Thanks for listening and letting me vent. 😌
I haven’t actually made a post in a very long time. To the people that were following me, I hope that you haven’t given up on me. I have been keeping busy with projects (knitting and crocheting) and reading. Cleaning and dusting…well, how much of that can a person do? Right now, I am working on a blanket (throw) for a cousin in California. I am really enjoying it and I know she wouldn’t mind if I put up a few photos. I love working on projects for people. It gets my creative juices flowing. My mind keeps busy and it helps out my arthritic hands as well. I wear my compression gloves quite a bit and they seem to work.
Now that you know what I have been up to, how about you all? What have you been working on? How have you occupied your days? I really would love to hear from you.
