Our new normal

While momma was in the hospital, I was able to catch up on some rest and some housework. But my rest did not prepare me for what the Dr said we were coming home to. I thought momma had caught my cold, but that wasn’t it. Her COPD has progressed. Momma did not respond to any of the medications while she was in the hospital. Now she is in a hospital bed and a wheel chair. Momma has to have someone with 24 hours a day and cannot do anything for herself. The Dr said this would be our new normal unless she started sliding down hill. Now her COPD is affecting her heart as well. We haven’t had any good days since we come home. I’m going call her cousin this week and ask her about Hospice because with her insurance we can’t get the help we really need. Her Medicare doesn’t take effect until September. If momma is still with us in September, we can go through Three Rivers and get a sitter and a nurse.
I can’t say if I will be online much or not. I do miss everyone so very much!
Take care!
XOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXO!

Oh I'm so sorry to be reading this. It must be awful for your momma to be so helpless and for you trying to provide her with the best care.
Take care

My goodness girl.

I'm really thinking about you.

You sound like you have a tough road ahead of you. Just be sure that you don't try to be a martyr and reach out and get the help that you need. This is too big of a burden for one person to bear. I'm so sorry you have to endure this.

Hugs and Kisses and remember we're all thinking of you and sending you positive vibes and lots of love.

Drop me a line anytime you need to chat.
