Day 49 YOUF

December 19th, 2018 at 04:08 am

I have an upper respiratory infection. I have asthma so I always get a bit nervous. I cancelled physical therapy appointments for the week. My husband bought chicken soup (we already had some canned, which I had a can for lunch) and some popsicles of real fruit. I chose raspberry. I took it easy all day. I did manage to put the dishes away and reload. I washed the coffee pot since I didn't think we would have enough dishes to run the dishwasher. I generally run it every night if we cook.

DH's very close friend is going home from the hospital tomorrow on Hospice. It's really hard on my husband and I am trying to support him as best I can. We have been married long enough that I don't get "mad" or "need" him. Even sick I can take care of myself (except we didn't have any popsicles), and understand him being gone until late each evening. He came home early tonight because he is tired out after spending from 6:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. for the past two days at the hospital. Luckily it is raining so the car wash has not been busy and his staff is handling things.

I have been taking Zicam so I am hoping I feel better tomorrow. We are supposed to have our granddaughters Thursday night and possibly Friday. My daughter needs to take her husband down to the VA in San Francisco for dental work. But she had to have her car towed today because it "went crazy". She took a video of her dashboard and it was very strange. Hopefully it is an electrical problem.

The pest control people came today and we luckily had purchased another year contract for half price on a local radio shopping show. I gave the technician a $10 bonus. He is really good about calling to make sure I get the chickens in their pen before he gets here.

My husband made burritos on Sunday, I had one last night. Tonight I had peanut butter and jelly on an English muffin for dinner.

    I am sorry you're sick and especially sorry about husband's friend. I think you're right to give him the time he needs at this hard time for both of them.

    Hoping you feel better soon, and I wish the best for your husband's friend.

    I'm sorry you aren't feeling well. I'm just coming out of the end of one of those and it was a doozy. Hope you recover quickly.
