Hey guys...just checking in again! I want to continue my heartfelt thanks to all of you praying and your wonderful comments that help make things easier for me. Thanks for not only your words of kindness for my mom...but also for caring about me. Yes...I am taking care of myself...this is the time I need to more than ever! I've been drinking water...eating well...and even relaxing. I started drinking this tea my sister told me about and it's helping me maintain my nerves to a minimum. Of course I'm still stressed out...but I don't feel it as much as before. I'm confident and have faith in God that he will help us thru this. MediCal just approved my mom but only half...which is OK with us for either a home nurse or a temporary home. Now it's up to my mom to make a bigger improvement in her walking at the hospital before they can release her anywhere. They want to make sure that she at least could stand...she hasn't been able to. That's the only worry that's weighing in on me...but then again I just think it's her body/bones getting adjusted to the plates that are holding her bones together. But so far so good.
I can't express to you how embarassing it felt posting my last entry in where I added my P.S. It was excruciating and I'm gonna just go delete it because I feel like if I was asking for handouts or something or begging for money and thats SOOOOOOO not me! The thing about me helping my parents...mainly my mom financially is because in their younger days...they didn't save any money! They never had retirement plans...NADA...and being my mom is only a resident of the US...they only gave her MediCare AGES ago thru my dad but discontinued her...I don't know the reason why...but they did. The very first bill came in yesterday and I nearly passed out. But I did have hubby give them a call and made payment arrangements that are within our reach...so God was listening to my prayers! I would have hated the thought of Oscar having to refi...it's hard as it is right now then to have to refi...I don't think so!
ON A LIGHTER NOTE!!! I will resume my normal non ranting posts!!! I just need to nip it in the butt! You've read enough whining from me and I feel horrible but it helps heal my heart to write things out and know I'm not alone when I see your encouraging comments. So tomorrow I'm gonna post a card I made that depicts the "other" side of me. It may not be too much of a shock for many of you who already know me well...lol...but to others...you may just be like..."WOW"! LOL! So until tomorrow...LOVES YA!!!!! Thank you so much for being there for me when I need it! I'm here for you too!
