The Ever Faithful Laundry
So, I often wonder these days, what happened to the girl I was, who was rarely sick, who read 4 fitness magazines a week, who loved to work out, who went places with her hubs instead of saying she had to stay home because she was sick. And tired. Well, I am sick and tired of being sick and tired.
I can't help but wonder, am I being punished? tested? attacked by the devil? what is it?
I was sick all summer due to gall bladder drama. Had surgery in July. Took a while, but then started to feel better. Blah, blah.
Then the whole cervical carcinoma fun popped up so I had the hysterectomy and bladder sling on November 15th - thinking that my Mother and Grandmother would have B and b so I could recover at home.
But, the week before my surgery, my grandmother became very ill. Her cancer has returned and so my Mother has been busy caring for her (as it should be). Then my Mother sprained her ankle. Seriously.
My Aunt and Uncle were here from NY visiting so they helped, too, along with my Aunt from Atlanta.
But, I haven't had a restful recovery. I am supposed to be out of work for at least 4 weeks. Ideally 6. But I only have enough sick leave for 4.
The week after surgery, this wonderful yucky sinus infection began. I think it has been exacerbated by my having to stay inside with the heat running.
And yesterday morning, I started vomiting and diarrhea round the clock all day. I suppose I picked up a virus at the doctor's office or b's school, because I haven't been anywhere else.
So, my aunt had to come back down from Atlanta to stay with my grandmother, so my Mom could keep my boys at her house while the Canadian was here with me.
It is all just unreal. I feel better today, but weak and dizzy.
Of course over all, I am concerned the most with my grandmother, and I wish I could be up helping my Mother. Hopefully, I will be soon.
In the meantime, the Canadian has taken charge of our ever faithful laundry.
Upon beginning said task, he has deduced that we have too many clothes and wants to bag up donations.
