I need to take care of me, too

Happy Anniversary to us. Tomorrow we will celebrate 51 years together

Today I had a doctor’s appointment. Apparently my kidney functions are showing they might be heading to trouble. So, I will be following the advice of a friend who is a doctor and a naturopath. I would much rather treat my issue with natural things instead of chemicals. Depending on what the day brings tomorrow I am hoping to get to the health food store and see if I can pick up a couple of the items I need.

Today Mike was up when I got home from the doctor’s office, about 9:15. He tried hard, but by 10 he asked for one of the new pills. He was still very agitated all day, and kept having hot flashes. Pipes in the shop had frozen, and we needed to go to Lowe’s – it was 21 degrees out, but he had the window down! I don’t know what to do to help him! There are enough of these pills to get through the weekend, but there are no refills – I think it might be necessary to see the doctor.

In the middle of all this, I am trying to plan for Christmas with Robert & family for Saturday. They will be here for breakfast, open gifts, and then have a late lunch. I don’t know how this is going to work with Mike. I hope and pray he’s able to handle this. I know if I don’t get some sleep, I won’t be able to handle much of anything either!

Two nights ago I was up with the door alarm going off around 2:30 am and I had to go check to make sure Mike was asleep, then check to see which door, or window, was opened! Last night, I just had a difficult time sleeping – I heard Mike get up a time or two, and so I wasn’t able to get any deep sleep; I needed to keep somewhat awake to listen for him in case he fell.

Mike’s trying hard, and he even waited 8 hours between the pill this morning and the one this evening! He does best if he can go to sleep – he’s been choosing to sleep on the floor of the living room and frankly, I don’t care where he sleeps, as long as he is comfortable!

It’s been a trying day, but a good one, especially knowing that God is in control Have a good evening.
