Resolving Another Frustration

As usual after a hospital stay, my mom received some new medications to take. When we visited her primary care doctor, he said to keep taking them and sent out an order. I checked on it yesterday and it was to be shipped out. Unfortunately, she was on her last dose. I started making phone calls […]

Calmed by Creation

Today I took my mom to another doctor’s appointment. This one was very frustrating as the communication with this doctor is always lacking and we never get help or answers or information when we need it the most, such as when my mom was having a difficult time in rehab. When I talked to the […]

Assigned Doors

Recently, a friend’s husband had emergency open heart surgery. She set up a website where she has been posting updates for the past couple of weeks. He has been improving, but it has not been a smooth road. There was a trip back to the emergency room after going home and now he has to […]

Encouraging Support Group

Today I went to the caregivers support group that I have been going to for a couple of weeks now. It has already been such a help from resources to every day ideas to thinking about things in a different way. This afternoon one of the ladies talked about how much she was struggling in […]

Reassuring Doctor

I took both my mom and dad to an appointment with their heart doctor today. My parents always look forward to seeing him as they know they will get many questions answered. Today’s visit did not disappoint. The cardiologist is always funny and encouraging while being honest. He told my mom that she should think of her […]

Commotion and Peace

My brother stayed with my mom this morning while my dad and I went to church. We went to an earlier Mass than we usually go to, known as the “kid’s Mass”. The church was full to the brim with young families. There was a lot of action and chatter and SHH’s and a few […]

History to Life

My grandson is hoping to make a trip at the end of the school year. He is doing some fundraising and now has a “Gofundme” page as well. His aunt – my daughter in law’s sister – wrote a beautiful paragraph toady as she helps him with his venture. I loved hearing her perspective about how relevant […]

Man Time

Yesterday, my brother drove all day and arrived late last night for a visit. It was so good to see him. We talk via Facetime, but of course it isn’t the same as being in person. Today he and my dad took a drive up to the cabin in the mountains. I didn’t realize he […]

No More Headache

After a few days of eating too much food I shouldn’t be eating – especially sugar – I found myself fighting off a migraine yesterday. I thought I was doing pretty good until I woke up about 3:30 this morning with a pounding head. I tried to re-position a couple of times to no avail. […]

An Ordinary Call

Today I got a surprise phone call from my son. He updated me on his wife and kids and job and weather. We chatted for a long time about ordinary things. There was nothing unusual, shocking, or special that we talked about. Perhaps that is why it was so special to me. I Found God […]
