Mar 8 2013 in Caring for Spouses by Pegi
I’m sitting and staring at a white page. Days, weeks, and months are passing us by. My husband used to always say “good things happen to good people.” I used to agree.
Now, not so much. Hubby could not have a kinder heart or more generous spirit. He’s mending from the latest infections hospitalization. Was miserable for two weeks with the oral antibiotics. It was cold here, and that hurts his bones. He sat in his wheelchair wrapped in an afghan, barely able to eat. All in all, he’s been physically drained.
In the midst of the squalor, we are still getting excuses from the company who have yet to finish our house. Still no patio, carport and sheds. He is really losing patience. I try to intercept whenever possible to keep him calm. But obviously he has noticed we have a POD in our driveway! This gets him all worked up. So now we have him physically and mentally distraught.
We are simple folk. We don’t ask for or expect a lot. Each other, our house in some semblance of order, family and friends; that’s pretty much it and we’re good to go. At some point in time this insanity has got to stop! It’s exhausting and I’m beginning to bore myself. That’s why I haven’t been around as frequently as I’d like. I think I used to be fun, can’t quite remember. Sorry for the whining, had to get it out. Bless all of you and your carees.
Tomorrow will be better…
