Ready for Summer

Sue
Hi all. Checking back in and saying hi.

money.svgNot much of an update.

My mom is still struggling a bit with her loneliness and she has a CAT scan mid-June that she is convinced will be bad (to check for cancer progression after she had a couple dozen radiation treatments due to her chemo no longer working). I am still struggling with finances and not able to really admit just how much to my husband because I’m feeling vulnerable and anxious and just don’t want to deal with it. He is frustrated.

My daughter is doing well, but last night we realized we gave her double her dose of lasix right as I was falling asleep. I gave her an early dose in the afternoon because we are trying to get her to sleep through the night without a gigantic, lake-sized leak in her bed, which often happens due to the lasix – so then my husband gave her another dose at her regular med time before bed. I panicked a bit, got up and called the pediatric cardiologist on-call at our transplant hospital. As I had thought, it was not a huge deal. But, the panic really made me sleep much worse.

I have a lot of financial fixing to do this summer. Trying to figure out a way to make some extra money while I’m off for the summer, but need to do it without incurring child care costs (as that usually just trades off with whatever I make). So, if any of you have ideas, online things that actually generate money, etc. I would love to hear them. I am a college instructor with what I consider to be pretty decent editing skills if that helps.

I am looking forward to getting back to following others and being more active on Caregiving.com now that I am out of school and can hopefully get a better grip on my schedule and life. It has not been an easy year thus far.
